From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “After having two solid races at ISM, we still have a lot of momentum heading into the final race of the year. Homestead has always been a challenging track, but I learn so much each time I race there. The further into a run you get and the more the tires fall off, the track becomes very top-line dominant. You need to be sure you can run up there if you’re going to have a good night. Our No. 19 team had some really strong runs this year at Kansas and Chicago, which are both top-line tracks, so that gives me an extra boost of confidence in how to approach the race this weekend. I’ll watch a lot of video to prepare for this weekend and I’ll be paying extra attention to when guys decide to make the move up to the top of the track. I’m looking forward to improving my speed in Homestead this weekend and having a really solid run with our Juniper team.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
