Ragan on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"I'm definitely ready to head to Michigan this weekend. Biffle's recent win gives everyone an extra confidence boost and means we're heading in the right direction. Michigan is a track that we've been successful at in the past. It's a wide track that you can really maneuver around and has different grooves to race on. Last June we had a really fast UPS Ford, but got into an incident on pit road that ruined our day. Michigan is the home track for Roush Industries folks and Ford, so it would be great to get them a win in their backyard."

Crew chief Donnie Wingo on racing at Michigan International Speedway:

"Michigan is one of the tracks where there is typically a lot of green-flag racing, so Sunday's race always has a good likelihood that it will turn into a fuel mileage race. Michigan is a track that if you have a great handling car, it's wide enough where strong cars can drive their way through the field. We had a really great UPS Ford in the spring at Michigan, but got caught up with another car on pit road and played catch-up the rest of the race. Michigan is a track that Roush Fenway typically runs well at, and I am confident that our No. 6 UPS team will be carrying on that tradition this weekend as well."
