Biffle on Michigan: “I love Michigan. It is my favorite track on the circuit and I’m really looking forward to going there. I like Michigan because I’ve had success there with wins in the Sprint Cup Series and the Truck Series. I also like that you can race three and four wide at a down force track. As a driver, you have so many options. You can run the bottom, middle or top. It is a strategy race and fuel mileage often comes into play – sometimes in your favor and sometimes not. I just like the way the track is laid out and I think you see good racing there.”
Erwin on Michigan: “We are at a point now that we know we need to win both to move up in the points and secure a spot in the Chase. Michigan is a good track for us. The Ford teams in general run well there so we have high expectations for this weekend. This is a race where pit strategy is important and fuel mileage is usually a factor. You also have to watch for overheating because there can be a lot of trash blowing around at this track. We need a good finish this weekend and I feel like we can get it done in Michigan.”
Biffle is currently 14th in the Sprint Cup point standings following his 27th-place finish in Pocono. He is 23 points out of the 10th position with 12 races remaining until the Chase.
Biffle’s average finish at Michigan is 12.2 from an average starting position of 15.1.
