Biffle on Dover: "I will be disappointed if we are not in contention for the win this weekend at Dover. We led several laps there in the spring and won this race last year. Our pit crew is at the top of their game week in and week out. I was at the shop this week going over our notes from Dover with Greg (Erwin) so we would be ready to hit the ground running as soon as we unload. Dover is a great racetrack, the racing is good and as a driver, it's a fun place to race. We need a good finish there to keep Mark Martin in our sights. If we can keep gaining a little every week, we'll be right there in contention for the title at Homestead."

Erwin on Dover: "The car we're taking to Dover has been a good car for us this season. We had decent runs with it at both Pocono races and I feel confident taking it to Dover. We haven't finished out of the top ten at Dover in the last seven races and we've been in the top five the last four times we've raced there. We're all ready for a win and I can't say enough about this pit crew. They're making major adjustments during pit stops and still picking up positions. I just can't ask for anything more from them. We just need to keep gaining little by little each week."

Notes:

Following a ninth-place finish in New Hampshire, Biffle is ninth in the point standings and only 92 points out of the lead.

Biffle has an average finish of 10.6 at Dover and has nine top-10 finishes in 14 starts.

In the spring race at Dover, Biffle had the lead with less than 10 laps remaining but was too loose in the closing laps to hold off Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart.
