"We had a good run going at Homestead-Miami Speedway last year, leading laps and running up front before encountering mechanical problems. This is the last race in 2007, so we want to do everything we can to finish the season out on a winning note. It's been a tough year for our team, but there are positives. Foremost, our team has really put forth the effort to get our performance back on track. It's not that we're that far off. We're close. We want to close out strong this weekend and kick in some momentum for Daytona and 2008."
