BRAUN AT HOMESTEAD – Braun boasts experience in many different forms at
the 1.5-mile Homestead Miami Speedway; competing in the Rolex Grand-Am

Braun took the pole and finished third, cementing a comeback to finish
fifth in the Truck Series point standings.

season, Braun has scored 10 top-15 finishes, five top-10 finishes and

ROUSH FENWAY RACING AT HOMESTEAD – In 32 Nationwide Series starts at
Homestead Miami Speedway, Roush Fenway Racing has notched three wins, 16
top-fives, 21 top-10s, two pole awards and 421 laps led.  The wins were
tallied by Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, and Jeff Burton. 

HOMESTEAD CHASSIS SELECTION – Crew chief Chad Norris has selected
RK-374 for the season finale Ford 300 at Homestead Miami Speedway.  This
car was last driven by Braun at California where the rookie started 35th
and finished 13th. 

Braun, on the final race at Homestead:
“That seventh-place finish in Phoenix last weekend was a really great
momentum booster and has Chad [Norris, crew chief] and the guys ready to
do it again one last time this weekend.  Homestead is a track that
I’ve had success at in both the Truck Series and back in my sports
car days and I’m excited to see what we can do there with our Con-way
Freight Ford.  We got a top-15 finish with this chassis in California a
few weeks ago and I believe we can better that for sure this
weekend.”

Crew chief Chad Norris, on the season finale in Homestead:
“Coming off a good run at Phoenix with Colin and the Con-way Freight
Ford, we are excited for the finale at Homestead to finish out the
season with a solid top five or a win.  We are all thrilled to be in
Miami for Ford weekend and for the last race with Con-way Freight for
the season.  Colin has been pretty good there in the Truck Series and we
are ready to build on his strong performances that he has had there in
the past.”
