HOMESTEAD, Fla. – Quin Houff has spent most of the final weeks of the Xfinity Series season learning things lap by lap. On Saturday, the season will end with the Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and Houff is ready for another educational experience.
“The finale is here!” he said. “I know for many it’s been a long time coming, but these past five weeks I have been working with JD Motorsports have flown by. I have learned lots of valuable things to be able to help me grow as a driver in this sport, and I can’t thank the JDM team enough for allowing me to finish the season with them in the number 15.
“We have one more chance in 2018 to show the speed we are gaining week in and week out. Homestead is a tricky track, with its abrasive surface and preferred line being up along the wall. It won’t be easy to get the hang of, but I know the team will do everything they can to get me comfortable and fast throughout the weekend.”
The Virginia driver has built a solid foundation over the last few weeks as he looks to a future that should include more racing in NASCAR’s national series.
Practice is scheduled at Homestead at 2:35 and 5:05 p.m. Friday. Qualifying is set for 12:35 p.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 3:30.
The race is part of NASCAR’s Championship Weekend and will determine the Xfinity champion.
