Greg Biffle on the Daytona 500: “I’m looking forward to the Daytona 500 and I hope the 500 car is as good as the Unlimited car.  We were a little slow in qualifying so we have some work to do with trying to find some speed, but the Duels will tell us where we’re at as far as drafting.  We’ll keep working on it and see how good our 500 car is in the draft compared to the Unlimited car.  I think we’ll be alright, but we definitely need some speed.” Crew chief Matt Puccia on the Daytona 500: “The Daytona 500 is a very important race for us, especially being the first points race of the season.  Handling wise we learned what we need to do to the cars which will help us in the Duels and the 500.  Handling will be a factor with this aero package and we are learning that these Gen 6 cars react to things differently than the old cars.  Hopefully we can gather the right info to get a win in our 3M Ford next Sunday.” Team:                          No. 16 3M Ford Fusion Crew Chief:                 Matt Puccia Primary Chassis:         RK-781   Last ran Daytona in July – finished 21st Backup Chassis:        RK-798  Last ran Talladega – finished sixth -Roush Fenway Racing PR
