“I’m pretty confident in our team heading into Homestead. We tested there a few months ago and had some pretty good speed, I know we’re going to be around at the end to contend for a win. I earned my first top-five finish last year at Homestead and we’ve been fast at 1.5-mile tracks all year long. It would be great to end the year on a high note and come away with my first win.”

“The atmosphere is always crazy. You have so much coming down to one race, one weekend. Between the fans and the crews and the families, everyone is there to support you. It’s a wild event and I haven’t been down there on the bad side of things, but I don’t want to start now. Being able to walk away with another championship trophy this weekend would be justification for me. To be able to win back-to-back would be pretty special with two different teams and two different crews. Hopefully I can get the job done this weekend and bring home the hardware to GMS Racing.”
