GREG BIFFLE -- No. 16 National Guard Ford Fusion

YESTERDAY AFTER QUALIFYING, YOU SAID YOU'D HOPE THINGS WOULD GET BETTER FOR SUNDAY. AFTER RUNNING AT THE TOP ALL DAY IN PRACTICE, IS THIS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS IMPROVEMENT? "Absolutely. We couldn't really get our car to turn like we needed to and it was chattering the front tires. I think this is better, definitely better. I'm actually pretty happy with it [practice]."

ARE THERE CHALLENGES TO STARTING TOWARDS THE BACK IN TOMORROW'S RACE? "Yeah there are, because you are in all of that dirty air and it's hard because you want to get your car turning good, but you can't be too loose because you don't have any air back there. It's difficult; it will take us a while to get to the front and get track position."

IS PASSING EASY HERE? "After a few laps it is. It just depends. You're going to have to use the top and the bottom and all that. We'll just have to work on it and wait and see what we come up with."

YESTERDAY AND EARLY TODAY IT WAS COOLER. HOW DO YOU APPROACH TOMORROW WHEN IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE AROUND 80 DEGREES? "Well we've been trying to turn better as it is, so we we're worried about it warming up, at least I am right now. I'm trying to think about what I'm gonna have to do to get it to keep going because when it gets hot here, the track gets slick. It gets real slick, so we're thinking about that right now and what to do."
