Ragan on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"Michigan is a track that is special for our UPS team. It's been a good track for us in the past and being in Jack's and Ford's backyard we always look to run well there. We had a good run there in the spring and look forward to improving on that this weekend. Michigan is a smooth race track with multiple racing grooves. We'll need a good handling UPS Ford and good fuel mileage to pull off a good finish at the end. All of which we are very capable of achieving."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"Michigan has been a good track for us in the past and David did well there in the spring. It's a track Roush has done very well at in the past and we look to add to that this weekend. Michigan is Jack's and Ford's home track, which gives us added incentive to get a good finish this weekend."
