Sam Hornish Jr.:

What are your thoughts about the final race of the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway?

"I like Homestead-Miami Speedway; it's been one of my favorite places for many years. Unlike other intermediate venues that are tri-ovals, both ends of the track are exactly the same with two straightaways in between. The way you get into the corners at Homestead is unlike anywhere else. It's a unique track and a great place to have the final race of the season.

"I like being in the race car, so I wish we had another 25 races this year. I feel that we're starting to turn the corner on some things and get back to where we need to be. Although, it will be nice to have a little break since my wife Crystal is pregnant and we are having another baby during the off-season. It will be good to be home for a while and spend time with my family. I look forward to seeing what next year has in store."

Crew Chief Travis Geisler:

What are your thoughts on the final race of the season this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway?

"Homestead is always an exciting place to go each year, when the culmination of a season's work takes place in one weekend. We would like to thank everyone from Mobil 1 that has worked so hard on our behalf and we wish them well. I would also like to thank everyone at Penske Racing for all the hard work this season. We hope to end the season on a high note and put the No. 77 at the top of the board."

* Hornish will sign autographs at the Penske Racing souvenir trailer at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, November 21 from 9:45 -- 10:15 a.m. EST.
