Biffle on the All-Star Race: “I’m really looking forward to the All-Star race this weekend. One of the best things about the All-Star race is that everyone on the pit crew gets to share the spotlight. The crew will get a lot of recognition with the pit crew challenge on Thursday, the pit stop during qualifying on Friday night and the pit stops during the race. They also participate in the driver introductions and that’s a lot of fun for all of us. Hopefully we’ll all learn some things in the All-Star race that will help us in the Coke 600 next weekend.”
Erwin on the All-Star Race: “We’re planning to use the All-Star race as a test for the Coca-Cola 600. We’re going to run a different setup than what we plan to run next weekend and see how it works out. If we are successful, then we will probably adjust our planned setup for the 600. It is nice knowing it’s not a points race and we can kind of relax and have fun with the race this Saturday night. The All-Star race week is also good in the way that it recognizes the whole team.”
