Biffle on racing at Phoenix International Raceway: “I’m really excited about Phoenix this weekend, we finished third there in the spring and we always have good runs at Phoenix. We’ve been good at all the tracks with new pavement; Michigan, Kansas and Pocono. I’m looking forward to our opportunity to win at Phoenix and then we’ll move on to Homestead. We are getting closer to the top five in points, we’ve got to have two good runs and we can finish in the top five.”
Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Phoenix International Raceway: “Phoenix is one of the faster flat one-mile tracks that we’ll go to this year. It’s a new track surface and track position is going to play a big part. We had a good run in this race last year, had a good run earlier this year and we are bringing back the same car. The point battle is really tight, we need to have a good run to battle back up there and get a top-five finish in the points.”
