Biffle at Atlanta

Biffle has 20 Sprint Cup Series starts at Atlanta, earning three top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. He has an average starting position of 13.4 and finishing position of 15.6.

Last Time at Atlanta
Atlanta last year was the first race Biffle had Ortho on the hood of his No. 16 Ford and he earned a 10th-place finish. Biffle lost a lap early on in the race battling rear grip, but the team never gave up, ultimately earning their lap back.

The Car
Biffle is heading back to Atlanta with the same chassis he earned a top-10 finish with in the fall at the 1.5-mile track.

Designed to educate consumers about Ortho products, “What’s Buggin’ Biffle” takes on everyday challenges and gives homeowners real-life answers. The web-series gives fans a peek under Biffle’s hood to see what’s buggin’ him both on-and-off the track. Check out www.drivebugsaway.com for the latest episodes!

Biffle on Atlanta:
“Atlanta is a tough place, the car from lap one is sliding out of control. Five or 10 laps into a run you’re slipping and sliding all over the place. I like the shift from Atlanta being later in the year to earlier in the year; I think it will help a little with the tire wear. Atlanta is definitely one of the toughest race tracks we go to for tire wear.”

Puccia on Atlanta:
“Track time on Thursday with the new tapered spacer will be important for all of us. Atlanta is a unique track because it’s one of the more worn out 1.5-mile tracks that we go to on the circuit. It’s also very bumpy, so getting a compromise of balance of being able to get through the bumps is important. I’m looking forward to going down there with the No. 16 Ortho Ford Fusion and getting a good run this weekend.”
