Best Michigan Finish: N/A
“I think NASCAR is going in the right direction with the aero package. I love it. It’s shown right off the truck, even from the beginning of the year. We’ve had some good racing this year. The drivers are loving it. I think the fans are loving it. We have the ability to move around a little bit more, slide around a little bit more. And it’s a big change for me coming out of the XFINITY car. I don’t have a real good baseline of what the old package was in the Cup car, but I’ve had a good time driving it and trying to figure it all out. I think we're going to have some fun at Michigan in our CSX 'Play It Safe' Ford Fusion.
“Michigan could be another fuel mileage race. We had that last week at Pocono, where we gambled on fuel and were looking at a top-20 finish, and we ran out on the last lap. But it was a risk worth taking, and I’m proud of our guys for taking that risk. Fuel mileage racing is part of our sport. I like it. It can make for an exciting finish. I’ve managed to save fuel pretty well, but I am still learning. And that’s going to help us when we go to tracks like this and we take those risks and learn from them. It’s going to pay off in the end.”
