Carl Edwards on racing at Miami Homestead Speedway:
“Were going for three in a row in Homestead, three back-to-back wins is what we need for Copart. We had an amazing car at Texas and we are taking the same car this weekend. That car is so fast and it was a huge confidence builder for our Nationwide team to be able to beat the best teams in the sport on a 1.5 mile track. That is something that we haven’t done since 2008. Homestead is a track that we’ve been looking forward to since victory lane in Texas.”
