Ragan on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"I'm definitely ready to head to Michigan this weekend. It's a fun track to race at; it's a wide track that's fast with plenty of opportunities to pass. Plus Michigan is the home of Roush Industries and Ford. It's great to race in both their backyards and have so many people there to support us. I've had some good finishes in the past at Michigan and Roush as a team has done really well there. We've got a good team and I hope we can turn things around this weekend and get a top-10 finish in our UPS Ford."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"Michigan is a track where Roush has always been strong and a place where David has run well in the past. It's the hometown of Ford and Roush so everyone has added incentive to do well. Our pit stops have been consistent and Michigan should be good race for us."
