Biffle on Martinsville:

“Martinsville is one of those race tracks where you don’t want to go because it’s not our best track, but we always seem to come out of there with top 10’s and actually leading some laps.  We had a good race in the spring but got some right front damage and had to fix it, but it still turned out to be an ok race.  We are excited about our opportunity to try and get a clock this weekend.”

Puccia on Martinsville:

“Martinsville is one of my favorite race tracks to go to; I’ve been going there since I was young when my father would take me.  I always look forward to going there.  It gets back to the roots of old short track racing, beating and banging.  Track position is really big at Martinsville.  It’s a one lane, one groove race track so qualifying on Friday will be very important and tire management is also a big deal at Martinsville.”
