Elliott Sadler on Michigan International Speedway: "To feature such a special paint scheme and have Racing in America on the No. 19 Ford Fusion this weekend in Ford Motor Company and The Henry Ford's own backyard is a perfect fit. Ford has been such a great partner this year and it's an honor for us to have the chance to carry the Petty Blue colors and showcase the Henry Ford. We're looking forward to heading back to Michigan and getting our Petty Blue No. 19 Ford Fusion up front and keeping it there all day."

Crew Chief Todd Parrott's Thoughts on Michigan International Speedway: "It seemed like a lot of people fought loose there in June. The No. 9 car was really good and Elliott qualified 11th the first race there this year. It's one of his better tracks and he usually runs well there. We've got the same car that we had in Chicago and we were running pretty well until we had a mishap midway in the race.

"The paint scheme is awesome this week with The Henry Ford on it. Anytime you've got the Ford Family involved it's going to be great. Ford is a big part of my history. We won a championship with Dale (Jarrett) working with the Fords. Edsel Ford was a big part of that. Hopefully we can get there and put some numbers on the board this weekend."

Chassis History: The No. 19 RPM team has prepared chassis No. 282 for this weekend's event. This is the same Ford Fusion the team ran earlier this Chicagoland Speedway and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
