Pocono: Greg Biffle preview

Biffle on Pocono: "Pocono has never been one of our strong tracks but it's also not our worst track. I think a solid top-10 finish there this weekend is a reasonable expectation. We're getting better every week and despite our finish last weekend, we had a pretty fast racecar at times in that race. It's just a long race and you chase the track conditions all night. I'm looking forward to the next few races to see what we can do."

Erwin on Pocono: "Obviously Pocono has three very different turns and setting a car up to turn well in all three can be pretty difficult. Exit off of turn three is important for momentum down the front straightaway but entry into turn one is also important to keep that momentum going. Sometimes the handling in one turn can suffer to make the handling better in another but you just have to try to find a happy medium. We need a solid run this weekend in Pocono. We thought we had a top-10 finish in Charlotte but it just didn't work out that way and we need to regain some of the momentum we had in the first part of the season. I think we're improving what we're doing with the cars but we need to start having the finishes to show it."

Biffle is currently ninth in the point standings and 250 points out of the lead following his 32nd-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600.

Rear tire carrier Kevin McDowell was treated and released from the hospital following an incident on pit road during last Sunday's race. X-rays showed nothing broken and McDowell is expected to return to his pit crew duties in two to four weeks. While he is recovering, 3M team member and backup tire-carrier Eric Wallace will fill in.
