With a newly repaved track surface, the Sprint Cup teams took to the track Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning for some testing. The official race weekend kicked off Friday with a 90-minute practice session, in which Greg Biffle was fastest overall in his No. 16 Sherwin Williams Ford.
“I just missed it getting into three a little bit,” said Biffle. “I was a little bit too high and didn’t get to the bottom like I wanted. I was a little wiggly down there in one and two but I had been like that at practice. I really think I missed a lot of it in three and four. It feels good in race trim. We haven’t had it in race trim a lot but we will see more about that tomorrow.”
