BROOKLYN, Mich. – Roush Fenway Racing has won 13 times at Michigan, but June’s stop here was a nightmare.

Greg Biffle’s Ford was the only of the team’s three to finish on the lead lap—in 20th— and Carl Edwards and Rick Stenhouse Jr. were 23 and 27, respectively, at the track that’s about 90 miles from Roush Industries’ headquarters.

Edwards, who already has secured a spot in the Chase, is finishing his final season with the team but still wants to give his bosses and crew something to remember.

“This race is special,” he said. “Right now my goal is to go represent Ford and drive as hard as I can for Jack Roush the same way I always have and to get us a championship.”

Edwards, who’s won twice here, will start third and Stenhouse has the 10th spot on the grid Sunday. Biffle, who won last season’s June race to collect his fourth career MIS victory, starts 11th. A win would be especially sweet for Biffle, who could lock up a spot in the Chase. He’ll start the day 12th in the series standings.
