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: "Well, we'd obviously love to give Ford their first win of the season in their own backyard this weekend in Michigan. We have historically run well there as a company and it would be a great place for us to regain the momentum we had earlier in the season. The wrecks the last two weeks have definitely taken a toll on our points standings but we had top-10 runs going both weeks. 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."

Update on tire carrier Kevin McDowell: Recent x-rays show that McDowell has a broken toe that was not discovered in earlier x-rays due to swelling. It is now expected that McDowell will be out for three to five more weeks.
