Matt Kenseth on racing at Homestead: "This has not been one of our better tracks, for sure. It is still relatively new to us and we're still trying to figure it out. We tested our Busch car here a couple of weeks ago which I hope will help our performance. We'd certainly like to finish this season on a high note, particularly because we had a problem last week and a disappointing finish."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Homestead: "Last weekend was really frustrating with the brake problem that we had. Our car was good and we could've probably finished in the top-five, definitely top-ten, but for the problem. We just lost a few laps making repairs and never could get them back. We've struggled at Homestead in the past with our best finish coming last year. We're looking to improve upon that and finish out this season strong."

Busch Crew Chief Chad Norris on racing at Homestead: "We did come down here and test a couple of weeks ago and hopefully we learned some things that we can build upon. It should an interesting race -- with the banking at this track the guys will be able to pass. It will be exciting to watch, I think."
