Ford Performance NASCAR: Michael McDowell Daytona Accident Quotes

MICHAEL MCDOWELL, No. 34 Horizon Hobby Ford Mustang – “I’m not really sure what happened.  Obviously, we were all racing pretty hard there knowing that there’s weather coming and we’re past halfway.  I just have to go back and look at it. I don’t want to say anything silly, but felt like I had a good push from the 8 and had a run on the 22 and pulled out.  I’m not sure if the 8 got me a little bit or if the 22 just blocked a little bit too hard.  It’s superspeedway racing trying to get ourselves locked into the playoffs in our Horizon Hobby Ford Mustang.  We were going for it.  You can see the weather is right there, so it’s unfortunate.  We fought so hard to put ourselves in position to have a shot at making the playoffs.  I felt like that was our shot.  We had to go for it and it didn’t work out, but if I’d have lifted and the rain would have came and finished second, I would have been pretty upset with myself.”
