Biffle on Phoenix:
“Phoenix is a fun and challenging place to race. It’s hard to find a balance between the two ends because the corners are so different. Turn one is really like a tight short track, where turns three and four are almost like a 1.5-mile track. The radius of the corner tightens up on exit. Hopefully we can get a good finish in our No. 16 Ortho Ford this weekend at Phoenix.”
Puccia on Phoenix:
“Phoenix is our first one-mile race track of the year and we’ve been working hard on our short track program. It will be our first opportunity to see what we have on one-mile tracks with the new aero package. We got a top-10 in the fall and are looking to better it this weekend.”
