Quote on the Michigan Indy 400

"When I think of Michigan, I think of legendary IndyCar races. I grew up sitting on the couch watching some wild races at Michigan International Speedway. It's an awesome track for the IRL IndyCar Series. It's very smooth and really wide--at least three grooves. The last few years have produced some great finishes. Last year the Delphi team had a flat tire and came from a lap down to finish fourth so that was a good race for us. It's fun to race there and the style of racing is a 180 degree switch from Milwaukee so that will be exciting and different as well."
