Carl Edwards on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

“I’m very excited to go to a great track like Michigan for Ford and Roush Fenway.  I love racing on the wide surface and it takes a combination of car and crew to make it all work there.  Our Fastenal Team is bringing a car that we have huge confidence in and we are going there to win.”

Crew chief Mike Beam on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

“We are bringing the same car that we won with at Dover . We feel confident that we can take this No. 60 Fastenal Ford back to victory lane. The past couple of races have been won on fuel mileage and Michigan is another track where fuel mileage and pit strategy are a factor.”
