· The Car

o Chassis RK-787 returns to the track for the second time this season. This chassis last raced at Texas Motor Speedway, running well until a mechanical issue forced the team to the garage to replace the rear gear, ultimately finishing 33rd.

· Local Connections

o For the first time this season, Roush Fenway visits Michigan, the home of Ford and also RFR’s sister company, Roush Performance, which is located in Livonia.

o The spotter for the No. 60, Jason Hedlesky, hails from Clinton, Mich., which is nearly two hours away from MIS.

· Recapping Iowa

o Pastrana ran in the top-15 at Iowa Speedway, until he was caught in an accident on a restart shortly after the halfway point of the rain delayed DuPont Pioneer 250.
o Pastrana remains 15th in the NNS point standings.


Pastrana on visiting tracks for the first time:

“I'm always optimistic when I come to new tracks. Some tracks that I have been excited about have been bad and some that I have been nervous about have been really good for me. It's great having so many people to lean on and know we have a great car with RFR. Michigan should be a lot of fun.”
