Biffle on Vegas: "We had a really good run at Vegas last year and we've had a whole year to improve on our program so I feel really good about this weekend. We had a really fast racecar at California last weekend but we got caught in the pits on that last stop. These guys are building incredible cars for me to race and they deserve a lot of credit. I missed the race in Vegas in 2003, so to be able to come back and win it would be pretty cool. I'm pretty happy with the way this season has started but I know we could have had better finishes in both of the first two races so I'm going to do everything I can to make sure this one doesn't get away from us and I know the team will too."

Erwin on Vegas: "They resurfaced pit road and we expect it to be pretty slick so we will have to be mindful of that especially because there tend to be a lot of green-flag pit stops during that race.

We're hoping that what we learned at the Texas tire test as well as what we learned last weekend in California will help us get started on the right foot this weekend. The pit crew trained hard during the off-season and it has definitely paid off because they are at the top of their game on pit road. Obviously a win in Vegas would be the best reward."
