Greg Biffle, driver of the No. 37 Brewco Motorsports Ford, was involved in a single-car incident in Friday's final practice session and will require the use of a backup car beginning with tomorrow's qualifying session. Biffle, who is slated to make his first Busch Series start at Autodromo Hermanos Rodgriuez, commented on the incident.

Also of note, Michel Jourdain, Jr., driver of the No. 17 Roush Fenway Ford, suffered a motor failure in the final practice session, and preparations were underway to change the motor prior to tomorrow's qualifying session.

WHAT HAPPENED? "I just got a little high in the middle of the final corner before the straightaway."

WAS IT A CASE OF STILL BEING UNFAMILIAR WITH THE RACE COURSE? "Yeah, probably that, and it's just different."

HOW UNFORGIVING IS THIS RACE TRACK WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE? "Well, it's pretty forgiving in a lot of spots, but it's not forgiving right over there. That's about the only spot really."

THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME AT THIS TRACK. CAN YOU OVERCOME THE DISADVANTAGE OF NOT BEING HERE ALL THREE YEARS TO BE COMPETITIVE ON SUNDAY? "Oh yeah, I feel good about it. We were 10th quick before that, and really felt like we hadn't got our legs under us yet. I know I can run in the top five for the race."
