Cale Gale on returning as Defending Race Winner at Homestead:
"This is definitely a unique situation coming into an event as a race winner, but it has a great feeling that comes along with it knowing that everyone is aiming to knock you off the top. Our Ruud team had a great run last time out in Phoenix and I think we will be even more prepared for this weekend's race. If we can be close to contention at the end, I'll do everything I can to defend my crown as race winner!"
