McDowell on Martinsville

"Martinsville is my favorite track. The challenge is in not getting caught up in a mess. It's about as hard as Talladega to not be in the middle of somebody else's problem or causing one. But, it's a great racetrack. I love Martinsville.

"I'm usually pretty aggressive. I don't do well hanging around and waiting. I like to be in the mix, especially now with stage points. We've done a really good job this year scoring stage points. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten all the finishes we want. We've got four more races to finish the season off right."
