Ragan on racing at Michigan International Speedway: “Michigan is a fun place to visit and a track that we’ve been successful at in the past. It’s a wide track that you can really maneuver around and has different grooves to race on. Michigan is the home track for Roush Industries and Ford, so it would be great to get them a win in their backyard.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Michigan International Speedway: “Michigan is a track where David tends to run well and after strong runs at Texas, Charlotte and Kansas it should be a good weekend for us. The Roush cars typically run well at Michigan and with this being Ford and Jack’s home track it gives us extra incentive to run well. A good run at Michigan this weekend could move us up into the top 15 in points.”
