What are your thoughts on Homestead-Miami Speedway?
"It's hard to believe that it is the last race of the season already. This OneMain Financial team has been great to work with. I love the determination and the heart each member of the team has, and although we head to Homestead with a deficit, we are not out of this championship. We will fight until the end. We have to finish off what we started, and we are as prepared as we need to be to go out there and make it happen."
