Michigan International Speedway Race Advance

“I’m looking forward to another opportunity to race this new 2017 aero package at Michigan this weekend.

It definitely wasn’t the day that we set out to have, but my team fought through it and we worked with what we had in front of us. I hate that we couldn’t get the No. 43 Smithfield Ford Fusion a better finish.
