Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on Michigan

"I look forward to racing at Michigan because that is where we had our first start with the #17 DEWALT Ford Taurus and Roush Racing. We ran pretty good there for our first Winston Cup race together. It's one of my better tracks, it's similar to California and we had a real strong run at California this year. We're taking the same car, so I hope we can have an equal performance this weekend."
