NASCAR Race Mom wishes Michael McDowell the best of luck for his return to his home track. McDowell was born on December 21 1984 in Glendale AZ.
It’s fun to race at Phoenix in front of a hometown crowd, said McDowell, who will pilot the No. 95 Thrivent Financial Chevrolet SS. The track makes for really good racing with a lot of side-by-side action. The new pavement and dogleg create a whole new level of excitement. This race in particular is very competitive – there are usually a lot of cautions and plenty of opportunities to pass. It’s a good race for our Thrivent Racing team to come to after being at the mile and a half tracks for two weeks.
