Ragan on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“Homestead is the last race of the year and I’m looking forward to it since it’s been a good track for us in the past. It’s a track that really seems to suit the Roush Fenway style and I think we’ll all be strong this weekend. Being Ford Championship weekend makes it extra special to try and get a win and we’ve been pretty fast on the mile-and-a-half tracks. We’re taking the Texas car that ran well, so we should get a pretty good finish in our UPS Ford.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway:
“Miami is a neat race track because it has variable banking meaning you can run the top and bottom. Our mile-and-a-half program has been good as of late and we are all excited for Ford Championship weekend. I’m looking forward to taking the same car that qualified in the top five and finished in the top 10 in Texas. We should have a fast UPS Ford and look to get a solid finish to build up confidence heading into the off season.”
