Greg Biffle on Michigan: “I’m looking forward to Michigan. It’s one of my favorite tracks and we’ve run really, really well there in the past. It’s another track that’s been repaved, so we’ll have another whole day of testing this week to get our cars going good for the weekend. Again engines are going to be an issue with the high rpms, but we’ll just have to wait and see how MIS turns out.”
Crew chief Matt Puccia on Michigan: “Michigan is a place that Roush as an organization has had a lot of success at and a place Greg has run well at. It will be challenging dealing with the repave and getting a handle on what we have to do there now, compared to the past. It will be a lot about track position and I don’t foresee tires being an issue. Michigan is in Ford’s backyard, as well as Roush Industries, and we look forward to putting on a good show for them.”
