Greg Biffle on Phoenix: “I love going to the desert, I love the Phoenix area and Vegas. We are looking forward to another good run out there. We struggled a little last year in the Chase, but kind of got our car going in the middle of the race and at the end. So we are going to try to take that knowledge back and run better the entire race. I know we ended up in front there in the fall, but we are certainly looking forward to trying to pick up a win there this weekend.”
Matt Puccia on Phoenix: “Phoenix is the first one-mile track that we go to on the circuit and will be the first opportunity to see how our new Gen 6 Ford Fusion runs at a short track. We’ve got a brand new 3M Novec Ford for this weekend and we are coming off a respectable run at Daytona, but we are looking to better our finish by six spots this Sunday.”
