It was a successful debut for McDowell with his new race team at FRM. The veteran has always been a good superspeedway performer and he showed that skill Sunday. "We had our ups and downs today for sure. I am thankful to get stage points in each stage. It takes a top-10 finish and makes it like a top-five," McDowell said. "We had a fast Love's Travel Stops Ford. Unfortunately we had a little mishap on pit road and lost a lap because of it, and we fought our guts out to get that lap back. I'm thankful to get out of Daytona with a top-10. Derrick Finley and the guys all did a great job."
