Biffle on New Hampshire: "It would obviously be great to go back there and start the Chase with a win like we did last year. We had a good run going there in June when I was racing with Kurt (Busch) for fifth and got into the wall. We had gotten back to the top-10 I think when the caution came out for rain. We decided to pit and that just didn't work out in our favor. We got out of there with an 18th place finish but we did have a good car and that's the same car we're running there this weekend. Track position is so important so we'll be putting a lot of emphasis on qualifying well."

Erwin on New Hampshire: "Track position is crucial with these cars. We will be focusing on qualifying when we unload for that reason and also for pit selection. We had a top-10 run there in June but when rain shortened the race, we had just pitted and ended up 18th. We've done some testing for this race and are going over all of our notes to try to make sure we don't miss anything. Greg has shown he is capable of winning there; we just need to give him the car to get it done."

Notes:

Biffle is seeded 12th for the Chase after finishing the first 26 races 11th in the points because he has not yet won a race.

Biffle's Loudon Chase finishes so far are a fourth-place finish in 2005 and a win in 2008.

Biffle's first start in Loudon was in the No. 55 Andy Petree entry in 2002. He finished 27th.

Biffle will be running a special 3M Scotch Brand hood this weekend.
