In my opinion, this is the second most important race in the whole year, Daytona being number one. The manufacturers don’t want to lose in their backyard, they want to win." ESPN’s Ricky Craven added, "For the guys that are paying the bills, the car owners, it is very important. Take Jack Roush for example, he has 4,500 employees at Roush Industries here in Michigan" (“NASCAR Countdown,” ESPN, 6/14).
