Tight Points Battle at Homestead: Tyler Reddick (@TylerReddick) is locked in a tight points battle with Cole Custer entering the season-ending Ford EcoBoost 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race Friday night at Homestead-Miami (Fla.)

What They Are Saying
Tyler Reddick - No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150: "The progressive banking at Homestead is a great help to a driver and one more thing I can do to make our Cooper Standard Careers For Veterans Ford F-150 handle better.  It's so much fun to go to tracks like Homestead where you can really move around and help yourself. You can pretty much move wherever you want and find clean air.  Homestead is a wide racetrack and puts on some of the best racing all year, and it's a lot of fun when your truck is right. It's still very important to have a good setup underneath you and relay to your crew what you need out of your truck, but when everything is right, it's a lot of fun. Homestead is the last race of the year and I really want to go home with the trophy."

Doug Randolph - Crew Chief, No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150: "Homestead has been a really good racetrack for both Tyler and Brad Keselowski Racing as a company. We've just hammered out top fives there and feel like we're going to be in contention to win the race with our Cooper Standard Careers For Veterans Ford F-150. It's important for the driver to go 110-percent on that first lap of practice, because the tires go away real quick and by the time you get to the third or fourth run, the tires are worn and you don't really know what you have, setup-wise. In racing you're always only as good as your last race, and if you have a tough race at Homestead, it makes for a miserable winter. Nothing would be better for this team to go down there and pull off a win."
