McDowell on Phoenix
"It's always great racing at my home track, and it's getting a much-deserved upgrade right now. We've had attendance up and down all throughout the country, but not at Phoenix. Phoenix has been rock-solid sellout crowds, campers for miles. Out of all the places we go to, even Daytona, there are more people camping at Phoenix than there are anywhere else. We have great fans. They are loyal, they love racing, they love the atmosphere. And the culture that the track is going to be able to create for the fan is going to be amazing. So, of all the places we go to, and not just because it's my hometown, they really deserve it. They've done a great job keeping people in the stands.
"This will be our first race this season with K-LOVE Radio on our Ford. They've been a long-time supporter of my racing career, and it's great that they are continuing to do so now that I'm at Front Row Motorsports. For me, it's always fun to go home. It's pretty cool to have so much support in your hometown, both from the fans and from an important partner."
