#3MThrowBack | Greg Biffle Pocono Advance

Biffle on Pocono:

“I’m looking forward to Pocono this weekend.  I think some things we learned at our Michigan test will apply this weekend.  We had a good run going at Pocono last time, but got caught up on that last restart.  It’s cool to have the 3M logo from 1942 featured on the No. 16 this weekend and I’m ready to get to Pocono.”

Puccia on Pocono:

“We’ve had a lot of success at Pocono over the years with the No. 16 team.  We learned a few things last race at Pocono that we needed to work on and at the Michigan test last week we learned some things we can apply this weekend.  I’m looking forward to getting a good run for the No. 16 car this weekend and solidifying a spot in the Chase.”
