"Racing on the dirt in general is still something relatively new to a lot of us," says McDowell. "Even though we have had one go of it last year, it is still fun to do something a little out of our normal comfort zone, and wheel these cars around what would otherwise be an asphalt track.
"Bristol in and of itself is a challenge, but with dirt added, it adds a layer of complexity to the race. While we take it all in stride and tune to the conditions, we won't really know what will happen until we get to the track and see how the surface takes the dirt. It will be fun, and I'm excited to duplicate our success with our Love's Travel Stops Ford Mustang this weekend."
Michael McDowell and his No. 34 Love's Travel Stops Ford Mustang this weekend will race on the dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway this Sunday, April 17th, at 7 p.m. ET on FOX.
