Greg Biffle, driver of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion, posted the fastest single-lap speed during the first practice session on Saturday. Biffle spoke about how things went in between the two segments.

HOW WAS THE CAR? "We got the 3M Ford Fusion car a lot better in that session. I just wish I would have had that lap yesterday in qualifying. I just got too tight down there in three and four and got a terrible starting spot for tomorrow's race, but I feel a lot better. The car is real fast in race trim and we'll keep working on it. I was a little too free at the end of that session, but running down a lot of guys we're racing with, so I'm pretty happy about that. If we can just get the back of it under it a little better for a long run, we know it's gonna be hot and sunny and slick, so we'll just get it the best we can."

ARE ALL OF THE GROOVES COMING IN OK? "Actually, the last lap I ran the top down there trying to get a run on the 24 car and when I got up there it was just a little loose all the way around the corner. That tells us we need to tighten up just a little bit to be able to run up and down on the race track, but that was only about the second groove. That wasn't the one up next to the wall. That will come in later."
