Ragan on Homestead
“Homestead is a great racetrack. You can run fast a couple of laps on the bottom. You can move through the middle a little bit. But the fastest line around Homestead is right against that wall. It’s risk versus reward. You know you have to be there to find that extra little bit of grip that the racetrack still has to use that extra banking. But, if you slip just a few inches sometimes, you can get into the wall. And our cars aren’t as tough as they used to be. They’re a lot more sensitive to a little bit of damage here and there.
“Homestead is such a cool weekend for the entire sport with all the championships ending there. I enjoy that weekend. It’s got a little bit of a party atmosphere because everyone’s happy to see the end of the season come. We’ve got a lot of good things to look forward to in 2019, but we still have some unfinished business that last race of the year. We definitely want to have a good run for 1000Bulbs.com and end the season on a high note.”
