Biffle on Kentucky:
“Kentucky is a really fun, flat 1.5-mile track which creates lots of side-by-side racing. The sweeping corners, combined with the flat puts on a great race, plus Saturday night racing under the lights is always exciting. We’ve had some strong runs lately so I’m definitely looking forward to Kentucky.”
Puccia on Kentucky:
“I consider Kentucky a flatter 1.5-mile race track and I have some past experience there in both the Truck and Nationwide Series. Greg has run well there in the past, so with our combined experience hopefully we can continue the momentum we’ve built up over the past few races into this weekend.”
