Biffle on Watkins Glen: "I actually really enjoy the road course races because they are fun and the break up the season a little bit. We had a great run at Watkins Glen last year and then we finished seventh at Infineon earlier this year. I have every expectation to run in the top five and hopefully contend for the win on Sunday. I really think that last weekend could have been our third win in a row with the way we ran at Chicago and Indy the two races before that. We were excited to grab the win in Pocono but now these guys on this 3M team are hungry for more and I think that will show in the coming weeks."

Erwin on Watkins Glen: "We're taking the car to Watkins Glen that we ran at Infineon earlier this year. We had a pretty decent run with it at Infineon and it just made sense to take it this weekend. We will be running the old engine just because it makes the most sense with the Road Course package right now. The momentum is obviously high right now and I think it's reasonable for us to go to the Glen this weekend looking to walk away with a top-five finish. Pit strategy is crucial this year. You really have to make a plan and stick with it so that is what we are going to try to do."

* Biffle and the 3M team remain 11th in the point standings and are currently 428 points behind Harvick who retained the lead (a gain of 30 points).

* They have a 122-point advantage on Mark Martin in 13th place (a gain of 44 points).

* Biffle will be racing at Shangri-la Speedway in Tioga Center, NY this Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. in a celebrity race agains Rusty Wallace, Kenny Wallace and Matt Kenseth.
