Miguel Paludo on driving at Homestead-Miami Speedway and the 2012 season -
"It's hard to believe that we've already found ourselves at Homestead. It seems like not that long ago we were winning the pole in Daytona. So much has happened since February, both personally and competitively, both good and bad. Overall, I'm proud of how hard this team works and of many of the things we've accomplished, although our goals were to achieve even more. I'm happy that we can realistically be pretty sure that we'll finish in the top-10 in points, and my number one goal going into Homestead is end this season with a win and move up to ninth in the standings."

"I like Homestead a lot as a track, and Turner's intermediate track program has been strong all season. The truck we're bringing ran well in Las Vegas, and I think it'll run even better at Homestead. I hope that we can end this season on a high note and get the win we've been searching for all season."
