Marks on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:

"I am very excited to be back with the No. 10 team this weekend. I've learned a lot in the four starts with (crew chief) Stewart Cooper and am glad that I am making my first start at an intermediate track in a Nationwide Series car with this Braun Racing team. I raced at Homestead with the truck series in 2007 and learned a lot that weekend. I'm looking forward to applying those lessons and getting a solid finish in our Borrell Electric Co./Construct Corps Camry."
