Alex Bowman Quotes:
"I'm really excited to be going to Michigan. It's a track that I really enjoy running and lost out on an ARCA win last year by just a few feet. I think I like it so much because of the outright speed of that track, you carry so much speed into the corners but you also have to treat it as a momentum track. With the new pavement it will be very interesting to run a Nationwide car in. I'm also excited to be bringing one of my favorite cars to the track, chassis No. 42, which got the pole award at Texas Motor Speedway and has a lot of speed in it. Can't wait to get to the track and start practicing."

Chris Rice Quotes:
"Well this has been a rough couple of weeks, but I'm excited that we're going to Michigan. With all the support that we receive from TRD and engines from Joe Gibbs Racing, it really helps with the big tracks like Michigan. Combine that with a track that Alex Bowman finished second in a photo finish last year in the ARCA Series, and we've got a recipe to really run well and regain some momentum going into the summer months."
