McMurray on Michigan:
“I think that Michigan (Speedway) is one of the fastest tracks that we race at with regard to top-end speed. Carrying momentum off of turn two and four are important to have a good run down the long straightaways. The nice thing about Michigan is that it is so wide and the track offers a lot of room to find a groove that works good for the car. Our team cars have been good at Michigan recently, so we know that we have a team capable of running up front. I would guess that there will be a lot of different strategies on Sunday, as this is often a fuel-mileage race.”
