What will it take for your team to get to victory lane at Homestead-Miami Speedway? "This is a great team of guys. They build good cars, Trent (Owens) is a great crew chief and the pit crew is the best they've been all year. What we need to do to get to victory lane is to have no mistakes. We're a strong enough team that if something goes wrong, for example, we miss a setup or we have a bad pit stop, we are still able to rally back and get good finishes. That's what our statistics show. However, it is so competitive now in this series, that to win, you can't make a single mistake all weekend long. It'll be my first trip to Homestead with the team, but I don't doubt it'll be another good one."
