LEAVINE FAMILY RACING SHOWS PERSEVERANCE IN 2014
McDowell and No. 95 Team Finish NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Season in Homestead
CONCORD, N.C. (November 12, 2014) – The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season was an important one for Leavine Family Racing. The growing single-car race team fielded the No. 95 Ford in 19 races this season, seven more races than 2013. Highlights of the season included a team-best 7th-place finish at Daytona International Speedway and a hard-fought 18th place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Heading to Homestead-Miami Speedway for the season finale race on Sunday, Michael McDowell and the LFR team continue their course of action and plan to push forth, in spite of any challenges, toward a solid finish for the 2014 season.
McDowell currently has a career-best 32nd place finish at the 1.5-mile track but is optimistic about setting a new record this weekend.
“This has really been a growing year for us and we really want to work hard at Homestead and finish off this season strong,” said McDowell. “We have an awesome group of sponsors behind us and our entire team is appreciative for their support and glad we can showcase all of them at the season finale race.”
The No. 95 paint scheme will sport colors from all of Leavine Family Racing’s sponsors this weekend as a ‘Thank You’ for another great year of growth. Sponsors include: KLOVE, Thrivent Financial, TWD, JTS, Triangle Office Equipment and E6 apparel.
The Parts House joins Leavine Family Racing as a new sponsor at Homestead and will be featured on the car with Parts Plus. The Parts House (TPH) is a warehouse distributor of premium automotive and heavy-duty truck parts and accessories for the automotive repair industry. TPH is one of the largest distributors in the Southeastern United States and Caribbean.
Race fans can tune-in to the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 16 at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Following Homestead, McDowell and the Leavine Family Racing team will join forces with Thrivent Financial and pack gifts for Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse project, on Thursday, Nov. 20 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Christ Lutheran church in Charlotte, NC.
