Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Michigan:
“After scoring a top-10 finish last time at Michigan, I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Every year we look at Michigan as a track that we want to do well at given Roush Fenway, Jack and Ford success there in the past. We have been working really hard on our intermediate program since it makes up of a majority of the races in the playoffs. This weekend will give us a chance to evaluate our improvements.”
