Podcast: Michael McDowell on Next Gen Progress, F1’s American Growth, NASCAR Race Lengths

Fresh off his third top 10 in the last four races and best finish of the season at Darlington Raceway, Michael McDowell joins Davey Segal on the Frontstretch Podcast.

The duo discusses if the Next Gen car really has leveled the playing field, how it’s helped Front Row Motorsports, whether having three teammates in three years has been a detriment, Formula 1’s rapid growth in America, that time he beat Lewis Hamilton in a race (yes, really), his thoughts on NASCAR race lengths and so much more.

Stock Car Scoop co-host Bryan Nolen joins Davey to discuss the finish at Darlington between Joey Logano and William Byron, whether the move was justified, Byron showing emotion post-race and more. Plus, the two engage in a spirited discussion around the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix while previewing the upcoming NASCAR weekend at Kansas Speedway.
