Biffle on the Coca-Cola 600:

“The Coke 600 is the longest race of the season and gives us an opportunity to work on our car for a long period of time. Charlotte is one of the more temperature sensitive tracks that we race on. Starting in the day and going into evening is a huge factor and why this race is so challenging. In the All-Star race we were able to drive from the middle of the pack up to third, so I feel confident going into this weekend.”

Puccia on the Coca-Cola:

“The Coke 600 is one of the more challenging races since it starts in the day and ends during the night. Not only is it a test for the driver, it’s a test for the teams and the equipment since it’s the longest race of the year. We are looking to take what we learned in the All-Star race. We had a good car, but got caught up in someone else’s wreck.”
