TRAVIS KVAPIL, YATES RACING

Travis Kvapil on Michigan:

"I'm ready to head back to Michigan this weekend. I've had a lot of success at that track and I think we had a pretty solid run back in June. I think that if we take what we had in June in regards to our set-ups, and improve upon those a little bit, then we should have a car that can definitely contend for a top-10 finish on Sunday. We're excited to have Carfax on board and our team's goal this weekend is to give Carfax a tremendous introduction to the Sprint Cup Series. I feel very confident about what our team has been able to develop upon as we return to tracks for the second time this season."

Todd Parrott on Michigan:

"This will be our second time around going to Michigan this season and I feel really good about it. For the first race this year at Michigan we had a really good car but I feel that our 16th-place finish didn't show how strong of a car we had. We are actually bringing that same car back this weekend and we're fortunate enough to have Carfax on our car this week. I feel that we're going to be even better this second time around at some of these tracks we ran well at earlier in the season."
