JASON KELLER ON HOMESTEAD-MIAMI

"I'm looking forward to going to Homestead and finishing the season out strong. Our mile and a half program has continued to improve throughout the season, including a few weeks ago in Texas when we finished 12th. Steve Wallace is just ahead of us for seventh place in the point standings with one race to go. We can't control where he finishes in the race but in order for us to have a chance to move up, we need to put together a top-10 finish. We have the United States Postal Service on board as the primary sponsor for this race, so hopefully we'll deliver them a solid finish!"

TODD GORDON ON HOMESTEAD-MIAMI

"Miami-Homestead is a mile and a half track that doesn't race like the rest of the cookie-cutters. Due to the transition of the banking into the corners you have to use your brakes getting into the corner and by the time you get back on the throttle you wish you had accelerated sooner, but you can't. We are taking car 85, which I believe is our best race car. We ran it last at Fontana and came home with a 10th-place finish. It was also very competitive at Michigan until we had a spark plug wire come loose and cost us a lap."
