Biffle on Richmond: "Richmond is definitely a driver's track. I think that's one of the biggest reasons I have always liked it. It allows for really good racing and the night race this weekend will be exciting for the fans no matter what. We struggled there a little the last couple of years but I know the guys have been working hard to make sure we don't have the same problems again. I'm also optimistic that the return of the spoiler will help us out.

Erwin on Richmond: "We've really struggled at Richmond the last two years as a company and we have not had the finishes we were aiming for as a result. Richmond is a challenging track for the drivers which is why I think Biffle likes it so much but if we can't get the handling right, even a guy like Greg will have trouble getting around there. We are looking forward to going back there this weekend with the spoiler to see if that helps us with the aero-balance of the car. Richmond is a track where the pit crew can shine and help us gain positions in the pits. We are doing everything we can to try to get this 3M Ford Fusion into victory lane each week and hopefully one week soon everything will play out to our advantage and we'll get it there."

* Biffle is currently third in the point standings and 86 points out of the lead following his 17th-place finish in Talladega.

* Biffle has one pole, two top-five and five top-10 finishes in 15 starts at Richmond International Raceway.

* For anyone following Biffle's progress with his 3M Unitek Braces, he just had a checkup in Texas and it looks like he should be showing of his new smile in five to six months.
