KFC Recognizing Restaurant Managers
Biffle’s No. 16 KFC Nashville Hot Ford Fusion will carry along over 2,100 names of restaurant managers for the Sprint Unlimited and the Daytona 500. Each manager represented on the No. 16 is being celebrated for leading the retraining of all employees in the original ways the Colonel made his Fried Chicken.
Nashville Hot Chicken
Nashville Hot Chicken, which will be featured on Biffle’s call all throughout Daytona Speedweeks, is the Colonel’s latest creation and was inspired by Nashville’s most famous dish. It’s spicy, smoky, crispy chicken that’s bold and full of flavor. KFC’s Nashville Hot Chicken is the biggest thing to happen to spicy chicken since Buffalo Wings.
Biffle on the Sprint Unlimited:
“I can’t wait for this season to get started and what better way to kick it off than Saturday night under the lights at Daytona for the Sprint Unlimited. It will be my first race with Brian Pattie and a good way to kick off Speedweeks. I’m feeling really confident about the changes over the off season and I’m ready to hit the track and see what we’ve got.”
Pattie on the Sprint Unlimited:
“I’m ready to get to Daytona and see what we’ve got. We’ve put a lot of hard work into things this off season. It’s important to be in the Unlimited and it will be the first time Greg and I get to work together. I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new season than with a win in the Unlimited.”
