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 second cup win of the season in their own backyard this weekend in Michigan. We are taking the car we raced at Chicagoland earlier this year. We had a top-five run going at that race before the engine failure left us with a 35th-place finish. 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."

Biffle and the 3M team remain 11th in the point standings and are currently 467 points behind Harvick who retained the lead. He has a 112-point advantage over Clint Bowyer in the 13thposition with four races remaining until the Chase.
