QUOTE: “In racing I feel like you’re only as good as your last race. We were able to overcome adversity last week in Phoenix and get another win and gain momentum that none of the other competitors had in this round of the playoffs, which was pretty cool. I feel like having that momentum puts us a step ahead of our competitors going into Homestead. I enjoy going to the mile-and-a-half tracks, we’ve had good speed there all year, our Chevy Silverados have always been fast but we haven’t been able to get a win on intermediate tracks yet. Going into a track like Homestead with the tire fall off we’re going to encounter, it’s going to be fun.”
