* This Week's Tundra... This weekend the No. 5 International Truck/Monaco RVs Toyota Tundra team will utilize chassis RMM-108 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday night. The chassis was last raced at Texas Motor Speedway where Skinner raced from 24th to eighth in just 147 laps.

Mike Skinner on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway

"Homestead [Miami Speedway] has always been a challenging track for me--it's one where I've started from the pole and I've led a bunch of laps and have had solid finishes, but I haven't been able to put the whole package together to make it to victory lane. This has been a very challenging season for the International Truck/Monaco RVs team, but we have had some really great runs and strong finishes in our Toyota Tundras. Hopefully we can all work together to get this truck dialed in exactly where we need it on Friday night and you'll see us up front contending for the win."

Crew Chief Stacy Johnson on competing at Homestead-Miami Speedway

"Homestead [Miami Speedway] is a challenging track to cap off a challenging year. The racing surface at Homestead is very smooth which lends itself to aggressive setups. Aerodynamics, as well as tire management, will play a pivotal role in vehicle performance."
