Biffle on New Hampshire: “I’m excited to be working with Matt. We’ve spent some time together at the shop this week and I feel confident that he will do well. He’s been with the company for a long time and despite the fact this is his first time as a Sprint Cup crew chief, he has a lot of valuable experience and most of the guys on the team had already worked with him in one way or another. I’m looking forward to getting to New Hampshire this weekend and I have high expectations for Sunday’s race.”

Puccia on New Hampshire: “I am excited about my new role with the 3M team and Greg. I think that they’ve proven that they are capable of winning and our equipment is capable of winning. Greg has won at New Hampshire before and our cars are arguably even better now. Our number one goal right now is to get in the Chase and a win would definitely put us a lot closer to that goal. If we can do that, I think that we can be a contender for the championship at the end of the season.”

Matt Puccia Info: Hometown – Watertown, NY, Age – 34, Years at RFR – 7, Last name is pronounced like the color fuchsia with a “P”.
