Biffle on California: “I can’t wait for California, I love that race track and I love going out west. That track is big, fast and bumpy but I don’t know how it will be with the Gen 6 car. We are working on getting over the bumps, which obviously didn’t work out well for us in Las Vegas. So we have a new plan for California. I look forward to picking up our first win of the season; I think we can do it at California.”
Puccia on California: “California has been a great track for us in the past. We’ve been working really hard the last few months on our intermediate and two-mile track program. We learned a lot of stuff at Vegas that we needed to work on which should help us this weekend. Bristol was a good race for us and we learned a bunch of stuff there that will help us in the future.”
