Nadeau's Thoughts on Michigan Speedway

"Michigan is a fun place. It's a wide-open race track. It's a place where you really don't see any attrition at all. There have been times where they would run green to checkers with maybe one or two yellows, so gas mileage is a big thing.

"I think most of these teams do everything they can to get better gas mileage, so it's just a matter of making sure that we come in at the right time and get all the fuel we can get.

"The car also has to be working good all day long. Track conditions seem to change a little bit during the day - it gets really tight at the end of the race. So you really have to keep the car underneath you all day long."
