"Michigan is incredibly fast. It's the fastest track that we go to as far as intermediate tracks in terms of top speeds and average speeds. And with this tapered spacer, I'm anxious to go there and see if speeds are going to be up. And the groove seems to be widening out, which is a good thing. It should help with passing. So, we're looking forward to going there with our Love's Travel Stops Ford."
