Michael McDowell on Kentucky

"At Kentucky, it's all about restarts, pit strategy and being aggressive. But you have to be really precise in your execution, as well. You see a lot of guys spin out when they get just outside the groove and that's because you're pushing so hard to get as much throttle time as possible, but it ends up backfiring. They're applying PJ1 to the upper grooves at Kentucky this weekend, which I think will help widen out the racing and make restarts even more exciting. I'm ready to go out and get a good finish in our Love's Travel Stops Ford Mustang and I'm excited to have Ark Encounter on the car this weekend, as well. My family and I have enjoyed going there when we're in Kentucky so it's great to have them aboard the No. 34."
