MOORESVILLE, NC (May 3, 2007) - Pole? Check. Top- five finish? Got it. Adversity? Overcame it. The last two races for Michael McDowell and Eddie Sharp Racing have acted as high notes for the 2007 season. Now, McDowell looks to raise the bar even higher.

McDowell and the No. 2 Z-Line Designs / Make-A- Wish / Beck Dodge will venture to Winchester Speedway in Indiana for this Sunday's Winchester ARCA 200, the sixth race of the 2007 ARCA RE/MAX Series season.

For Winchester, ESR brings the very chassis that McDowell drove to a pole and 3rd place finish two weeks ago at Salem Speedway. After last week's 11th place finish at Kansas, the team sits in the top-five in point standings and is hoping to continue that ascent.

McDowell, who makes his first career start on the Indiana half-mile track, likes his chances for not only a good points day, but also a victory:

"We've got a good (car) coming with us to Winchester. It was scary fast at Salem and that will apply here," explained McDowell. "We're confident; at Kansas I made a mistake in qualifying which put us behind the eight-ball a little bit, but that didn't take away from what we were doing. If we can go mistake free on Sunday, then there's no doubt in my mind we'll be sitting in victory lane before it's all said and done."

ARCA Pole Qualifying will take place at 4:15 pm on Friday. The Winchester 200 begins at 1 pm this Sunday.
