ADVANCE NOTES

 

Stenhouse Jr. on Homestead:

“We tested at Homestead a few weeks ago and feel good about racing there this weekend. Homestead is one of my favorite tracks. We’ve had our ups and downs on mile-and-a-half tracks this season but we are looking to turn that around this weekend. It would be great to get a solid top-10 finish this weekend with our Fastenal Ford and carry that momentum into the off season.”

 

Mike Kelley on Homestead:

“We had a really good test in Homestead a few weeks ago and felt like we learned some things that should help us this weekend. Homestead is tough because it starts during the day but ends at night so you don’t want to over adjust on your car. With it being the Ford Championship weekend, we want to have a strong showing to cap off the season.”

Edwards on Homestead-Miami

"Even though our run at the Championship is over, I am really looking forward to Homestead.  It has been a great race track for us.  I love racing there.  It’s Ford Championship Week and I want to get a win for Jack Roush and Jimmy Fennig and all of my guys, because they have worked so hard this year.  They did the impossible.  We made the Chase and we have two wins.  We held on for nine races of the Chase with a shot of winning the championship. I am really proud of every one of them.  I want to give the performance to finish the season the way that everyone deserves.  That’s what I am going to do.  Jimmy and I have talked and he is as fired up as ever and hopefully we can go and do a good job.”
