Biffle on Indy:
“I love racing at Indy, we always seem to run well there. I can’t wait to kiss the bricks. I feel like we have a good car, we’ve gained a lot on downforce and a lot on drag. I’m looking forward to having a good engine and qualifying up front. This thing is going to be ours.”

Puccia on Indy:
“Indy is probably one of my favorite tracks to go to on the circuit. It’s one of the fastest tracks we go to and all the history makes it pretty unique. Track position plays a big part, so qualifying will be key on Saturday. Also, pit stall selection is important since pit road is so narrow. We ran well there last year and we learned some stuff at tracks like Pocono which will help our program out for Indy. I’m looking forward to getting back to work after our off weekend.”
