NASCAR fans are extremely loyal and their passion for the sport is an area Sprint Cup Series driver Michael McDowell finds inspiration through both on and off the track. The driver of the No. 95 Thrivent Racing Chevrolet SS believes the dedication found in NASCAR fans is unlike that found in any other sport.
“It’s very cool that our sport has the avid following that it does and the loyalty of the fans is incredible,” said McDowell. “I recognize fans that come to the same races year-after-year and are there supporting me. Those are true fans and it’s inspiring to have their support at the race track or when they’re cheering us on at home each weekend.”
“Sometimes you can really see the dedication of fans when you have a run-in with another driver – and you can feel that wrath!” McDowell said with a smile. “That really shows the fan support drivers have!”
