Greg Biffle on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway: “I’m looking forward to Homestead this weekend and I hope to have another good run. We’ve won three times there, so hopefully we can finish off the season in the top five in points if everything goes our way. You’ve got to have a good car so you can run the middle, top and bottom of the flat slick race track. I’m looking forward to getting the 3M Ford in the top five in points, I’ve got my fingers crossed.”
Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway: “Homestead is a unique track that has progressive banking, which offers side-by-side racing. It’s a tight points race from third to 10th, so every point matters. We are looking to get a good finish this weekend in Homestead to end the season on a high note and build momentum for 2013.”
