Biffle on Bristol: "Bristol is just so intense. You can't relax at all. It's like walking a tightrope for 500 miles and holding your breath the whole time. No other track is like that. It obviously takes a good racecar to win at Bristol but it helps to qualify well. Sometimes it can be hard to pass and if the field gets backed up, it doesn't take long for the leader to start lapping cars. If you have a bad qualifying run or have to start in the back for some other reason, it can be difficult even with a good car to get back through the field. The night race has a whole different level of excitement and it should be a great race for the fans."

Erwin on Bristol: "We are taking the same car we ran in the first race this year. We qualified well and ran right around the top five for most of the race until we ran had an engine failure on lap 326. During practice on Saturday, we'll work on getting the car to turn through the center of the corners. If we can do that and qualify well, it will just be up to Greg to stay out of the wrecks during the race. We're not where we'd like to be in the points right now with only three races left until the Chase but we just need solid finishes the next few weeks to stay in it."

Notes:

Biffle is 10th in the point standings following a 20th-place finish at Michigan.

In the last race at Bristol, Biffle was running in the top 10 when he reported on lap 295 that the engine was missing, he made it another 31 laps before the engine failed.
