· Last Time at Bristol
o Greg Biffle made short-track racing at Bristol Motor Speedway look easy as he worked his way from 28th after pitting for damage all the way up inside the top five. The 3M Ford was one of the fastest cars on a long green flag run, but as the race played out with multiple cautions and different pit strategies Biffle lost some ground on the track. Biffle crossed the finish line 11th.

Biffle on Bristol:
“I’m really looking forward to Bristol this weekend. We always have good runs at that race track. You race right up against the fence, as fast as you can go. Saturday night under the lights, where else would you want to be except Bristol, Tennessee.”
Puccia on Bristol:
“Bristol is a very challenging track, you need to have a good car to stay up front and stay on the lead lap. We’ve had a lot of success there in the past, but it can sneak up and bite you in a heartbeat. There are 500 laps in which we need to keep the car in one piece. I’m sure there will be lots of Bondo used after the race for repairs, just hopefully not on our car.”
