On Track With Michael McDowell – West Coast Swing AUDIO

The start of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has not been kind to Michael McDowell.

We go on track with the driver of the No. 34 Loves Travel Stops Ford for Front Row Motorsports. Michael McDowell joined me prior to the Cup series first practice to talk about fighting through mechanical issues, a stuck throttle at ISM Raceway. McDowell said it was strange and kind of a blessing. Stuck throttles in NASCAR have become far and few between in recent years. The EFI system in NASCAR, plus the kill switch and a hook on the pedal.

We also dive in to the new NASCAR pit road rules for qualifying sessions. Plus McDowell shares his thoughts on that and how you have to race this new aero packege, it’s a different style, and an adjustment for all.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera.

I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO.

The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth.

Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras.

My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports.

See you at a track soon
