Reed on Homestead

“Homestead is a blast, it’s one of the coolest race tracks we go to.  It is really demanding, it’s so worn out and we run right up against the fence.  I have yet to run an entire race without finding the fence, but I don’t think I’m alone in that club.  My goal is to keep a little cleaner racecar this year, I think I got the fence about eight times last year, but it’s such a fun place.  It’s just one of those tracks that every driver looks forward to going there just because it’s worn out, drivers track, everything that a driver talks about that he wants to feel in a racetrack, that place has it.  It’s our only true 1.5-mile oval, it’s unique, we don’t go to very many places like it.”
