Yesterday (February 14th, 2013) was the Daytona 500, which is sort of like the Superbowl of NASCAR Racing.
Normally, this wouldn’t even register on my radar but I was interested in seeing how the #98 car driven by Michael McDowell would fair in the race, particularly because the car was sporting sponsorship logos of K-LOVE Radio and MIKESCHAIR (two of my favorites!)
Well, I’m happy to report that my watching the race and cheering on the #98 must not have done too much harm yesterday as the team posted a Top Ten finish in the race, zooming in right on the tails of Danica Patrick’s history making run at Daytona. (Normally, me cheering for anything sports related is the kiss of death and that’s no joke!)
In an interview with K-LOVE, McDowell said, ““I know why I’m here. I know I’ve been called to be in this sport, to help disciple the young guys coming up, and share my faith at our events…the racing is just the platform I have.” He went on to say that “Racing with the K-LOVE logo is an answer to my prayers. The K-LOVE relationship coming together is something I have been praying for years,” he said. “I prayed that God would partner me with people who were like minded.”
Congratulation again to McDowell (and K-LOVE) on their winning collaboration on the track! If you would like to read more of McDowell’s interview with K-LOVE where he shares his testimony about he came to know the Lord after being raised in a non-Christian family, click here.
