FRM Post-Race Report: Talladega

Michael McDowell
No. 34 Love’s Travel Stops Ford Mustang
Started: 12th | Finished: 40th
I didn’t really see what happened, just saw the 43 coming up the race track. That was about it. We were unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time. We were real hopeful for our Love’s Travel Stops Ford Mustang today and to be out so early on is very disappointing. But it’s out of our control. That’s part of superspeedway racing.”

No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity TV Ford Mustang
Started: 18th | Finished: 37th
An unfortunate end to our day at Talladega Superspeedway. We had a great car and a shot at a really good finish. We missed the wreck but just got a piece of debris stuck in the splitter, which damaged the radiator and ended our day. We’ll regroup this week and look ahead to taking our Surface Sunscreen/Tunity TV Ford to Dover.

“I was in the middle there after we took the white flag and I just got loose and wrecked the 24. I spun him out across my nose and he collected a few other cars. When you get three-wide, there is just nowhere to go and my car just jumped sideways and when I corrected it, I caught the 24’s left rear and spun him across my nose. That was unfortunate for our team. Our Shiners Hospitals for Children Ford Mustang was fast all day and I had a lot of fun out there but just made a mistake there at the end.
