After an 11th-place finish at the Bristol Motor Speedway, McDowell and the No. 34 Long John Silver's crew have momentum on their side. The team has four top-15 finishes this season. The best finish this season for the team is sixth at the Richmond Raceway. They are now looking ahead to another short track.
CREW CHIEF TRAVIS PETERSON:
"We are heading in the right direction as a team. We have shown that we have what it takes to race on these short tracks. Martinsville presents its own sets of challenges, but I feel good about it."
DRIVER MICHAEL MCDOWELL:
"We have put effort on our short track program this year. We have seen the results at tracks like Phoenix, Richmond, and really at Bristol, too, even on the dirt. Martinsville is a real tough track, but we've met the challenge this season."
