Stacy Compton Quotes

On Homestead: "Homestead is a sentimental track for me and this Kingsford/Bush's Baked Beans team. It's where we made our first start as a group, and we came out of there with a 10th-place finish. I love the track. I've never been worse than 21st there, and I have three Top-15 finishes there. It's a momentum track. The more momentum you can sustain through the corners, the faster you'll be down the straightaways."

On the season: "I've never had better race cars in my career and I've never been around a team that works as hard as this one at ST Motorsports. At the same time I've never had a year with so much bad racing luck in my life. You hate that the season is down to your last race, especially since we've had such good cars every week. But with our luck, I'm looking forward to taking a break and putting all that bad luck behind us."

Crew Chief Chris Rice Quote

On Homestead: "This might be the perfect racetrack, and it's only going to get better as the pavement wears. You have to make sure your car rolls through the middle of the corners without any problems. If your driver can hit the gas in the middle of the corner instead of hitting the brakes, you're going to be fast. The best part about that is, you can drive it anywhere - the bottom, the middle, the top or anywhere in-between - to find your comfort zone."
