"I Can't Wait For Indy; I Think This Is Going To Be Our Race" | Greg Biffle Indy Advance

Biffle on Indy:

“I’m looking forward to Indy for a few reasons.  We’ve been working really hard in the shop and our simulations and getting our cars better.  Also, we are testing at Michigan before heading to Indy to try and get a better setup and a better aero platform.  Track position is the most important thing at Indy.  Qualify up front, stay up front, I’ve done it several times there and had opportunities to win.  With this new car being down on the race track I think it’s going to provide us with two lanes and lots of passing.  I can’t wait for Indy; I think this is going to be our race.”

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 important on Saturday.  We’ve been working hard in Michigan testing and have a good plan for Indy.  I’m looking forward to getting back to work after our off weekend.”
