Biffle on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:
“I always enjoy going to Vegas for several reasons.  I usually get to go to the sand dunes like I did this week when we’re on the west coast. That’s one of my favorite things I get to do away from the track.  I also enjoy playing craps if I get a chance while I’m in Vegas.  Probably my favorite part of Vegas though is the track.  It’s fast and it’s a lot of fun to race there as a driver.”

Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:
“I’m looking forward to going to Vegas this weekend and bettering our back-to-back third-place finishes from Daytona and Phoenix.  Vegas is one of the typical 1.5-mile tracks on the circuit and Greg runs really well there. I’ve got big expectations from the 3M team in Vegas.”
