Michael McDowell has raced with Leavine Family Racing since 2014. In 2016 it will be his first fullish partial schedule since Michael Waltrip Racing in 2008. McDowell was the victim to rainy skies in 2015 as he missed a few races due to attempts, McDowell will not have to worry about that in 2016 with the owners points from 2015 coming from the Circle Sport Racing team.
Ty Dillon, grandson to Richard Childress racing will share the ride with Michael McDowell. I personally think McDowell may be just the mentor and Teammate that Dillon needs to get better behind the wheel. Dillon has some experience behind the wheel of the #33 as he made some races with Circle Sport in 2015. Dillon will also run a full schedule with Richard Childress Racing in the Xfinity Series in 2016, We can Also expect with the new Technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing that we could see Michael McDowell behind the wheel of the newly formed #2 in the Xfinity Series where he can continue to impress race fans. McDowell's last appearance in the Xfinity Series was with Team Penske at Kentucky in 2014 where he finished 8th, Before that race in Iowa he raced for Joe Gibbs Racing where he almost beat Brad Keselowski. I honestly hope RCR puts McDowell in at least one Iowa Race where he can show everyone who he is.
I am honestly looking forward to what is to come for Michael McDowell, Ty Dillon, Bob Leavine, Joe Faulk, among the others in the new organization! (Koelle,2016)
