Biffle on Kentucky:
“I’ve excited about the Kentucky race for a few reasons. I love night races and we’ve got ACE Bandages on the car and the black car will look really good under the lights Saturday night. Kentucky has been a tough track for us, but I have a lot of success there in Truck and Nationwide. We’re hoping for a good run Saturday night.”
Puccia on Kentucky:
“We’ve been working hard on our intermediate program. We got to test Indy last week and hopefully learned a few things that will help us this weekend. Kentucky has been a track we’ve had decent success at on different levels. We are looking forward to Kentucky with ACE this weekend and putting on a good show for them.”
