Biffle on Talladega:

“I’m really looking forward to Talladega.  We’ve been working really hard on our restrictor-plate program.  We did a tire test for Goodyear at Daytona and so we think we learned a little bit of speed secrets.  You never know what will happen at Talladega.  It’s a lot wider race track and we are probably going to be three or four wide.  For sure it will be an exciting finish.”

Puccia on Talladega:

“We had a decent run at Daytona and learned a bunch of what we needed to work on with our superspeedway program.  I like the direction we’ve gone and the work that we’ve done leading up to now.  A lot of strategy goes into racing at Talladega to keep track position and I expect lots of side-by-side racing.  Look for the 3M Safety Ford Fusion to be upfront all day and we’ll get us a good run.”
