Biffle on California: "I really can't wait to get to California. I love that track partly because we've had success there but also because it's a lot of fun and it is fast and challenging. A lot of strategy comes into play at California and that usually makes it interesting too. I also really like going out west because I get to see my family. My mom usually comes to most of the west coast races and it's always good to get to spend time with her. Other than that, my goal this weekend is to win the race and take point lead."

Erwin on California: "We're pretty excited about going to California. We're taking a newly configured 3M Ford Fusion based on some significant changes we made to our mile-and-a-half package during the off-season. We were also fortunate enough to go to a tire test in the off-season at Texas Motor Speedway and felt the cars handled really well there. We have historically run well at California and we think it is one of our better chances to come home with a win early in the season. We got off to a good start with the third-place finish in Daytona but it would be great to keep the momentum going with a win in California."

* Biffle is currently third in the point standings following his third-place finish in Daytona.

* Biffle has led a total of 297 laps at Auto Club Speedway and has an average finish there of 17.3 in 14 starts.

* Following the race in California, Biffle plans to go to the sand dunes outside of Vegas to spend some time with friends,

* The 3M Team can be followed on Twitter under the username 163MTEAM and Biffle can be followed under the username gbiffle.
