Deborah will be making her second career start at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. .
Deborah On Homestead:
"Homestead is a great track. - It's really smooth which makes it fast. The track has multiple grooves giving you ample room to pass. You can even race side-by-side in the corners. These trucks run just about wide open here making it an exciting race for the fans and competitors. The surface had just been refinished last year when I raced there for my first time. It may be a little different this year since it has some laps on it - but I think it will be the same exciting, fast pace racing like it was in 2004. It's has been a good track to me. I finished pretty well last year and I'm hoping to top that finish this weekend."
Deborah On The End Of The 2005 Season:
I've made giant strides this season with this BHR2 team. My finishes don't really gauge how well our trucks have been and how much I've learned this year. Bobby (Hamilton) has been great helping me - he never thought twice about jumping in the truck to get a feel for it and to help me find my line for the race. It's been a lot of fun to work with him. Shawn (Parker, crew chief) and every one of those guys on that crew have so much to be proud of. They have put together some awesome trucks for me this year. We've had our share of bad luck this year but overall I think it was a great learning experience for all of us. This BHR2 team has brought itself up to the next level of competition."
Deborah will be making her 38th career start in the Craftsman Truck Series this week at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.
