FINISH
22nd 
 
MICHAEL MCDOWELL (DRIVER QUOTE)
“After qualifying well, it was disappointing to have to start at the back of the field. Considering the challenges we faced today, having a top-25 finish is pretty solid.  I felt the Thrivent Financial Ford was a top-10 car today so I’m definitely looking forward to coming back here in the fall.”
 
WALLY ROGERS (CREW CHIEF QUOTE)
“We had to overcome a lot today so a 22nd place finish isn’t too bad.  We had an electrical issue this morning that put us behind and then we had to come in for a loose wheel during a green flag run.  I’m proud of the guys – they put in a lot of hard work today and pitched in where needed.  McDowell drove a great race, his lap times were consistent and among the Top-10 in the field.  Next up for us is Talladega in two weeks.”
 
NEXT RACE

 

The next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event for Leavine Family Racing will be the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.  The team has a ninth place finish and a sixth place start to their name at the 2.66-mile superspeedway in only three starts as an organization.
