Biffle on racing in the Bud Shootout at Daytona:
“I’m really jacked about the Shootout. The reason why is because we have different radiators, different openings, fuel injection and all kinds of different rules for this year. This is the first time we’ll get on the race track this year, so this is a test for all of us. Everyone in the Shootout gets an opportunity to see how the car drives, see how many laps you can really push, and you just try to win the thing. No-holds-barred, no points, this is just a race for fun and we don’t have to bring that car back next week. I can’t wait, I love it and the Bud Shootout is right around the corner.”

Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing in the Bud Shootout at Daytona:
“The Shootout is a good race to knock the cobwebs off and see how the new rules NASCAR came up with for Speedways will perform. We’ve got a fresh team and it will be good to get a race under our belts before the points season begins to get everyone working together as a team. It will be our first chance to see how the fuel injection system performs in competition and also get a feel for how fuel mileage will play into a race situation.”

• Last year Biffle finished 16th in the point standings which qualified him for the Shootout.
