Michael McDowell & Leavine Family Racing Bring Powerful Friends to Atlanta

After a team career finish at the conclusion of the Bristol night race, Michael McDowell and the No. 95 Leavine Family Racing (LFR) Ford Fusion look to build on their recent momentum heading into this weekend’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The driver will get an assist from some powerful friends during the ORAL-B USA 500 as he will drive the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo Ford Fusion in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

With a Top 10 finish at Daytona and a Top 20 finish at Bristol during the summer run the team is showing continual improvement as a result of hard work and strong sponsor partners. The Atlanta race program featuring Nickelodeon and the Ninja Turtles offers another opportunity to continue that momentum and have fun at the same time. Look for Michael McDowell to be in “character” on Sunday.

As part of this promotion at the speedway, fans of all ages will be able to enjoy end-of-the-summer activities chock-full of ‘Turtle power’. The Nickelodeon Kids Zone, located in the Fan Zone adjacent to the main entrance to the speedway, will offer free family fun with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumed characters, a TMNT photo station, micro-stock car racing, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles obstacle course, as well as a Turtles-themed cooling lounge and tattoo station. Nick Radio’s J Boogie will be broadcasting from the Nick Radio DJ booth and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumed characters will visit the Nickelodeon Kids Zone throughout race day and various surprise locations all weekend.
