"Homestead is the last race of the season and one we'll all remember going into the off season so it's important to run well. I enjoy Homestead and we're running the new FR9 engine again. Being Ford Championship weekend I really hope to get a good finish in our UPS ford and end the season on a good note. We've struggled some this year and Homestead could be a place we turn our luck around."

"Heading into Homestead we are motivated to end the season on a good note. Things haven't gone our way this year and we've struggled some. Getting a solid finish at Homestead with the new engine on our last race of the year would be the confidence builder this UPS team needs heading into the off season."
