Biffle on Richmond: “Short tracks have been a little challenging for us in the past, but it seems like we’re doing better at short tracks than we are at these big tracks. So I’m excited about going to Richmond, we ran well there the two races last year. We’ve got the American Red Cross on our car. Think about all the people that need blood, go donate blood, every two seconds someone in America needs blood.” Puccia on Richmond: “Richmond is a fast ¾-mile track and it hasn’t been one of our strongest places. Last fall we had a good run and learned a bunch on what it takes to be strong at Richmond. Track position is huge, you’ve got to be able to roll the center and drive off. We’ll take what we learned and hopefully have our Red Cross Ford up front at the end.”
