Fast Facts

* Matt Kenseth has finished in the top-ten eight times in the last ten races at the Michigan International Speedway.

* Kenseth will be running car number 39 on Sunday at Michigan. This is the same car that led 176 out of 267 laps at the Chicagoland Speedway in July of this year.

Matt Kenseth on racing at Michigan: "I really like racing at Michigan. There are multiple grooves and you can pass, which are characteristics of my favorite kind of track. We've consistently had good finishes at Michigan, so it's a good place for us to be going after Watkins Glen, where we didn't finish very well. We are taking the same car that was so dominant in Chicago, so I hope we will come out with a top-five finish."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Michigan: "We certainly didn't have the finish that we were looking for at Watkins Glen, so we're looking forward to heading back to Michigan where we've been successful in the past. We have one win under our belts there, along with a string of top-ten finishes. We finished fourth there in June which was our best finish of the season at the time. I'm looking for another top-five finish this weekend to get back on track."
