Biffle on Charlotte:
“I’m excited to be racing at Charlotte this weekend. We’ve had some really good runs there lately, just haven’t been able to pull off the win. Charlotte changes the most out of any track we race at from evening to night. We’ve been fast, but as the rubber gets down the handling changes. We’ve got to stay up with the track to win there Saturday night.”

Puccia on Charlotte:
“Charlotte is a typical 1.5-mile race track with a lot of grip and traditionally we run well there. The challenge is being able to adjust from the conditions changing as the track rubbers up. So that’s the challenge that we’ll have in front of us.”
