Michael McDowell Has a Lot to Race For Heading into Las Vegas

Michael McDowell

CarParts.com to Support Team’s Historical Push

Although Michael McDowell and the No. 34 CarParts.com team may be out of the championship hunt, the team still has a lot to race for— which includes making history for Front Row Motorsports (FRM).

FRM has a season-best finish of 16th in 2016—the last season the organization competed in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. McDowell now wants to set a new high mark for FRM. The No. 34 team has been inside the top-20 in points all season, highlighted with five top-10 finishes, two top-five finishes, and a Daytona 500 championship. McDowell heads into Las Vegas 43 points out of 15th.

Supporting the end-of-season push will be CarParts.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRTS) this Sunday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. CarParts.com will bring their familiar primary colors back to the No. 34.

McDowell is proud to have CarParts.com on board to support his best season.

“We can’t do what we do without the support of all our partners, such as CarParts.com,” said McDowell. “We’ve had a great season, but it’s not over. There are seven more races left, and that means seven more opportunities to get better and break records at FRM. There’ve been many positives from this season and there’s still more to accomplish. We want to make history and we’re driven to have CarParts.com be a part of that.”

McDowell heads into the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a best finish of 17th last year.

“There is no taking away from the tremendous season that Michael and the Front Row Motorsports team have had,” said Houman Akhavan, Chief Marketing Officer at CarParts.com. “We’re proud of Michael and his success, and we admire his drive to make even more of an impact for himself and his team. It’s the same philosophy we have at CarParts.com—striving to deliver the best parts and experience for our fellow drivers.”
