Greg Biffle on racing at Martinsville Speedway:
“Martinsville is one of those tracks where I have a love/hate relationship. You’ve got to keep the brakes on the car and keep the car turning good to be competitive. Track position is very important so qualifying will be a focus. We can win there, we just have to be in the right situation. We have a brand new car for this weekend and I feel pretty good about running in the top 10.”
Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Martinsville Speedway: “Martinsville is the smallest race track we race on all year, so taking care of your brakes, and taking care of your car is crucial. You need to save your brakes, but at the same time, try to maintain track position because it is hard to obtain. We’ve run well there in the past, it’s just about being in the right place at the right time when the dust settles.”
