In multiple categories, Michael McDowell is having a career year in the NASCAR Cup Series.
With 17 races completed, the 35-year-old driver from Phoenix, Arizona, has an average finish of 20th and has earned two Top-10 finishes in his third year at Front Row Motorsports.
McDowell credits increased manufacturer support, as well as the employees at Front Row Motorsports in helping with the uptick in performance this season.
McDowell says his status at Front Row Motorsports is "year-to-year" but he wants to continue to be a part of the organization beyond 2020.
"This is where I want to be. I want to win races here, I want to win races with this group, and I’ll be here as long as (team owner) Bob (Jenkins) will have me. It’s a tough sport, it’s a tough business, and it’s driven by sponsorship and partnerships.
"There’s drivers that bring sponsors and drivers to the teams and I’m always fighting up against that. But, I mean that when I say that: I want to finish my career here. I want to build this program, I want to win races and I want to win championships here at Front Row.
