Biffle on Sonoma:

“I’m looking forward to some road racing at Sonoma, something different this weekend.  We tested a little while ago at VIR and also did some schooling out at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah.  The keys to Sonoma are staying on the race track, gas mileage, taking care of the brakes and transmission.  If you can do all those things then you can come out of there with a good run and possibly a win, I’m looking forward to it.”

Puccia on Sonoma:

“Sonoma is a little bit of change of pace for us being the first road course of the year.  We’ve had a lot of success over the years at road courses and finished well the last two years at Sonoma.  We did some road course testing a few weeks ago and we are looking to get out to Sonoma and having a good run.”
