CONCORD, N.C. (September 21, 2017) – Michael McDowell is looking to earn his best finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) for the ISM Connect 300 this weekend.
In the midst of a season of bests for McDowell and Leavine Family Racing (LFR), McDowell has recorded 13 Top-20 finishes, many of which were track bests for the 32-year old Phoenix native.
McDowell has driven part time for LFR since 2014; however, 2017 is his first full Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season for the single-car team.
Though McDowell finished 26th at the New Hampshire 301 in July at NHMS, he feels like returning to the "Magic Mile" just two months later will help the team fine-tune their setup for the 300-lap race.
"It feels like we were just at Loudon. It's nice to go back to a track that you were just at, because you know what you had as far as setup. You also know what works and what doesn't work. We are going to fine-tune and keep working on what we had at the race in July, and we plan on maximizing every opportunity we get."
LFR recently announced their partnership with Procore Technologies, which will begin this weekend at NHMS. Procore is set to finish out the 2017 season with LFR and McDowell as both a primary and associate sponsor for select races.
The ISM Connect 300 will take place on Sunday, September 24 at 2PM ET. Race fans can tune-in to NBCSN for live coverage and follow @LFR95 on Twitter for race updates.
