FRM Post-Race Report: Pocono

Michael McDowell
No. 34 Long John Silver's Ford Mustang
Started: 17 | Finished: 25
"We fought a tight racecar pretty much from the start of the race. Tried making a few changes throughout the day, but it seemed like nothing would go right for us. Then we just ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and made contact with the No. 1. We still managed to get back on the lead lap with a heavily damaged car and came out P25. We'll regroup and look forward to Watkins Glen next week."
Matt Tifft
No. 36 Surface Sunscreen/Tunity Ford Mustang
Started: 27 | Finished: 23
"P23 for us today was definitely a really good day, considering the team swap going into the weekend. After a few early mistakes resulting in minor damage and a speeding penalty, I felt like we made some good adjustments and Seth made good calls to get us in a position to get the Lucky Dog, and back on the lead lap. From there, we were able to capitalize on some late restarts to get a good finish and another top 25."
David Ragan
No. 38 MDS Trucking Ford Mustang
Started: 19 | Finished: 36
"The 21 just slipped up and spun me out in my left-rear quarter panel. I’m sure Paul just slipped out of the groove and lost control for a second and we happened to be there. That’s very unfortunate. I felt like we had a top 20 car today; we raced around the top 20 most of the day. Mike Kelley and our new group of guys called a good race and we had a pretty good weekend. When you’re racing hard like that, sometimes things happen and things have seemed to happen to us a lot lately. We’ve been in a slump and had some bad luck and it takes a couple of races and we’ll get out of it, but it certainly is a tough ending to what could have been a good day."
