Carl Edwards on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:

"Ford Championship weekend has always been a huge weekend for me and Roush Fenway. We've got a ton of momentum right now. I feel like our 1.5-mile program is really strong, and our team is riding a huge wave from last weekend's win in Phoenix. We can't lose at Homestead because no matter what happens we all feel like we finished the season strong. We're just going to go for the win and hopefully finish top four in points. That would be huge."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:

"It was great to finally get a win at Phoenix last weekend. Now we can go to Homestead and try for another win, and maintain our fourth place in the points. Carl has a great record at Homestead and won there in 2008. We are taking our newest car in the fleet which we ran at Charlotte so I feel it will be good. We've got a lot of momentum going into the final race of the season so we'd love to end the year with one more win."

* ON THE TRACK...The Aflac team will be unloading chassis RK-709. Edwards raced this Ford Fusion most recently at Charlotte in October where he finished 16th. It was a new car at Charlotte.
