· 811

o Common Ground Alliance (CGA) announced it has partnered for the fourth consecutive year with 3M and Greg Biffle, driver of the 3M No. 16 Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, to promote the national 811 “Call Before You Dig” phone number on the No. 16 car on Sunday, Aug. 11 at Watkins Glen International. CGA is the national association dedicated to protecting underground utilities and the people who dig near them. 3M is one of the 1,500 members that comprise CGA.
· Puccia’s Homestate

o Crew chief Matt Puccia is originally from Watertown, NY.

· Another Local Connection

o Kevin Doebler, Roush Fenway fabricator and raceday pit support for the No. 16 3M team is originally from Johnson City, NY.

Biffle on Watkins Glen:
“I like road course racing. It breaks up the season a little. This is the same car we had a good run at Sonoma with and we’ve had a couple of top-10 finishes at Watkins Glen in the past so I think it’s reasonable to shoot for a top-10 finish this weekend.”

Puccia on Watkins Glen:
“With me being from upstate New York Watkins Glen is kind of like a home track. Watkins Glen is the second road course we go to and a change of pace from the normal oval track racing. It’s good to go back to road course, we typically run well there and we ran well at Sonoma with the Gen 6 car and learned a bunch there.”
