Biffle on Michigan:

“I’m really excited about going to Michigan.  We’ve been doing a tremendous amount of testing and working very hard at Roush Fenway to catch up with some of the other teams, so our most recent week off we tested at Michigan and felt like we found a lot of speed that we were missing.  We didn’t really carry it through to Indy like we thought, but some of it carried through to Pocono and as we look at that and improve on that we’re pretty optimistic going to Michigan that we’re gonna be one of the competitive cars and challenging for the win.”

Puccia on Michigan:

“I’m looking forward to going to Michigan this weekend.  It’s always great to go back to Ford’s backyard and always special to run good there because it’s Jack’s backyard.  We identified some stuff that we needed to work on after the first race and took the opportunity to use one of our NASCAR tests to go up there and improve our program.  We are looking to get a good run and get us our first win of the season this weekend in Michigan.”
