McDowell on Kansas:

“That was a very eventful night. Our car was super loose to start the race, but Drew and our guys worked really hard all race long to make consistent improvements to our No. 34 Dockside Logistics Ford Mustang. Missing some of those wrecks near the end definitely helped and we took the checkered flag P16, which is another solid run for us and a good points day. Thanks to Dockside Logistics for coming on board today.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
