Team Marines Racing notes & quotes:

Bobby Hamilton, Jr. on Homestead:

"For Homestead, you need a good handling race car. It's a pretty flat track, therefore you've got to have the car working good for you in the corners. You need a lot of grip so it will stick as you go through the turns. Track position is really important here because it has such a narrow groove that makes it tough to pass. You really have to search for the opportunities to try to make a pass. You'll see some long green-flag runs so pit strategy can play an important role in the outcome. Another reason that track position is key. If there are some long runs, it could come down to a gas mileage kind of race.

I got the pole here two years ago and would like to do that again this weekend. If there is one thing missing from this season, it would be a pole. It's been such a great season with Team Rensi and the Marine Corps and getting a pole would just really make it complete.

We tested at this track a couple of weeks ago and learned a lot about our setup so I feel we are at a good advantage. We have a great car and we'd love to have a good, strong finish to top off our successful year on a high note."

Testing:
The No. 25 Team Marines tested at the Miami Homestead Speedway on October 28-29.

Equipment:
The team will compete with chassis No. 18 this weekend in the Ford 300. This is the same chassis the No. 25 Team Marines competed with in Michigan where they finished 5th and earlier in the season in Las Vegas where they finished 11th
