Keselowski will battle with Carl Edwards for the championship runner-up position in this season's Nationwide Series. The 25-year-old driver trails Edwards by just 60 points heading into the season finale on Saturday.

Brad Keselowski on driving at Homestead-Miami Speedway
"I am really looking forward to this weekend. We are bringing a brand new car, which will be pretty cool. Homestead-Miami Speedway is an awesome track. You can run side-by-side because of the progressive banking, which is fun for both the drivers as well as the fans. Running the last three races in the No. 12 Penske Dodge has really been a success. It has given us a head start on next year. I have learned a lot about how we do things at Penske Racing. Coming into a new organization, half the battle is trying to understand the processes and I think I have a firm understanding on how and why we do things. I am really looking forward to the off-season and getting ready to race in Daytona."
Crew chief Roy McCauley on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway
"Homestead-Miami Speedway is a great facility. The track is very unique and is a bit more forgiving than some of the other tracks we go to. We have made great strides with Brad [Keselowski] in the last three weeks. We had a really good car last week in Phoenix, but were caught up in a wreck. Brad was happy with the car and the adjustments we made during the race. He has done a great job integrating into the No. 12 team. He is an unbelievable talent and has a bright future in NASCAR."
