John Wes Townley Quotes:
"I'm really looking forward to this weekend's race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. All in all, I feel pretty good to be winding down my first full season of Camping World Truck Series competition. We've had our shares of ups and downs, we've had some good races and some that weren't so good. But, Chris Rice and all the guys at RAB Racing really worked hard week in and week out to give me the best Toyota Tundras possible. We'll give it all we've got for one more race in 2012, we'll go out and try to finish the season with a strong run."
Chris Rice Quotes:
"Homestead-Miami Speedway is one of the toughest places we go to, because of the lack of grip on the track. It's a lot like Darlington, tire wear will be an issue, compiled with aerodynamic issues we will have to overcome. We're taking the same truck we qualified eighth with at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this month. There was some minor damage to repair after that race, but she's as good as new. It has been a really solid season for us and we're looking to close it out strong this weekend."
