The first time is the sweetest, especially when it happens twice
Saturday's NASCAR action saw a rare double-header, with two first-time winners, Michael McDowell in the NASCAR XFINITY Series and Brett Moffitt in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
And you better believe they both appreciated it.
For McDowell, one of the nicest people you will ever meet, it was his first victory in 297 NASCAR Touring Series races dating back to 2007.
When you wake up and have to double check social media to make sure it wasn't dream. ???? #ReallyHappened— Michael McDowell (@Mc_Driver) August 28, 2016
And it was just as sweet for Moffitt, who had never led a lap in Truck Series competition before winning Saturday at Michigan International Speedway.
And both victories were well received by fellow racers.
