Making their way to the Great Lake State, Jeb Burton and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) head north to tackle Michigan International Speedway in Saturday's Michigan National Guard 200. Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team remain second in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings heading into this weekend's race.

Jeb Burton on Racing at Michigan International Speedway: "To say I'm ready to race at Michigan is an understatement. We just couldn't get things right at Pocono. The handling was off; it felt like it was all over the place the entire race.

I know what our team is capable of and I definitely know what our truck can do, so we've put that race behind us and set our focus completely on Michigan. I've been studying race film, talking to teammates and doing some iRacing to prepare. I think our Arrowhead Chevy has a good shot this weekend. Like always, we'll sure give it all we've got."

James Buescher and the No. 31 Rheem team head to Michigan International Speedway (MIS) looking to rebound from a disappointing finish at Pocono Raceway two weeks ago. This visit will mark Buescher's fifth start at MIS in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS). In his last run at this track, Buescher brought his Silverado home with a fifth-place finish.

James Buescher on Returning to Michigan International Speedway: "For a while it was looking like we were going to have a pretty good day at Pocono; unfortunately, we got turned around on the last lap and gave back all the points we were going to gain. I really like running at Michigan, it's a lot of fun and I've had some good runs there, so I think this could be a great place to turn around our season."

Bet On Brazil...The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) heads north for the series' only stop of the season at Michigan International Speedway.

Paludo has made two visits to Michigan in the past, finishing and starting in the top 10 in both previous starts.

Paludo's best start at the track (third) was earned last year with Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM), while he garnered his best finish of third in 2011.

Miguel Paludo on driving at Michigan International Speedway: "Michigan is a track where I enjoy racing and I feel like it suits my driving style. Up until last weekend, Michigan was my career-best finish, and we're bringing the same truck we brought to Pocono. That truck keeps getting better and better every time we race it, and after finishing second, the next step is bringing it to victory lane. We've been getting so close to a win, and I've got a good feeling about this weekend."
