Ford Teams Michigan Race Quotes

Michigan International Speedway

CARL EDWARDS, No. 60 Fastenal Ford Mustang (Finished 1st)

“Ricky Stenhouse is a driving machine and here comes Jack Roush. Jack got us some fuel miles and we couldn’t dare run out of fuel with that Ford Focus out front in the pace car, it is all about fuel mileage today. Jack leaned her down and we didn’t need it, it was great. Mike Beam did a great job with the strategy. I didn’t think I was going to get by Ricky. I cannot drive any harder than that. That was as hard as I could drive to get by him. He is going to be a force to be reckoned with.”

HAD YOU EVER HAD A DOMINANT CAR MORE THAN TODAY, BECAUSE BOY THIS CAR WAS SWEET UP UNTIL THE END WHEN RICKY GAVE YOU A RUN. “It is really nice to be able to drive by a lot of these cars when a year ago we couldn’t. That is a testament to Doug Yates and everyone that developed this FR9 engine. Ford is back. They are making great cars, have run their business right and we can all be proud to represent them. It is really special to be in victory lane here at Michigan.”


JAMIE ALLISON, Director of Ford Racing

“To finish one, two, five, wow. Trevor is back, Carl wins and Ricky ran strong and passed Kyle at the end. What an unbelievable race and a great day for Mustang here in our back yard at Michigan.”


RICKY STENHOUSE JR., No. 6 Tender Ridge Ford Mustang (Finished 2nd)

“We just got too tight. Our Tender Ridge Mustang was pretty good on the short run. It just got too tight. All in all it was a good points day for us and Carl’s Fastenal Ford was fast all day and it was fun to battle with him. I wish we could have finished the other way around.”


TREVOR BAYNE, No. 16 Ford Mustang (Finished 5th)

“I was following the 09 into the pit box and we were out at the wall and all of a sudden he stopped and turned his back. I think it was a real tight squeeze for him and I got into him because I didn’t get slowed up in time. I was watching to make sure I wasn’t speeding. They fixed it up pretty good but it had a lot of drag on it. To come out of here with a fifth place finish is really good.”
