Biffle on Daytona: “I’m looking forward to this weekend. Hopefully we can get a top-10 finish or a win and get the points going back the right way. Daytona under the lights is always exciting and was the site of my first win, a long time ago. I’m hoping to back it up with another this weekend.”
Puccia on Daytona: “Daytona is one of my favorite tracks that we go to on the circuit. Daytona has been good to us in the past and we had a good run in February finishing second in the shootout and sixth in the 500. We’ve been working really hard on our Superspeedway program and we are looking to get good finish this weekend.”
