Biffle on Martinsville: "Well, it's obvious by looking at my stats that Martinsville has been a tough place for me. We've had a few decent runs there but getting your car to turn can make the difference between a fun race at Martinsville and a long day at Martinsville. When the car is turning and you can get off of the corners on the gas, the race at Martinsville can be one of the most fun races of the season but when it won't turn or your brakes a failing, it is probably my least favorite track on the circuit. I would say our goal this weekend is to leave Martinsville with a top-10 finish and hold our position in the standings."

Erwin on Martinsville: "The key this weekend will be to get the car to rotate through the center so the driver can get into the gas as soon as possible coming off of the corner. We have been able to run in the top 10 at Martinsville and we just need to be able to do that this weekend. As always, qualifying well will be extremely important because it is generally easier to stay up front at Martinsville than to get up front at Martinsville. We've had a good start to the season and this weekend is definitely one we earmarked as a challenge. I know this team is up for it though and I look for us to get a top 10 finish."
