Biffle on New Hampshire: “We’re taking the car that we had a decent run with at Richmond a couple of weeks ago. It was the best we’d run at Richmond in a long time so the guys worked hard to get the car turned around and ready to go for this weekend. We had a really fast car last weekend and had a random problem take us out of contention. If we can avoid things like that, I really think we have a chance to get a win before the end of the season. We’ve got a special Ford40mpg.com paint scheme this weekend and we’re ready to get it on the track.”
Puccia on New Hampshire: “As usual qualifying will be extremely important this weekend as track position and pit selection can be crucial. It is a little difficult to pass at Loudon but if you have a car that will turn through the center and is good off of the corners, that gives the driver more options. We’re pretty excited about the Ford40mpg.com paint scheme this weekend. Ford is doing a promotion for the fans that could potentially give 40 lucky winners a new Ford Focus.”
