BIFFLE'S FINAL START IN THE RED MAN MOIST SNUFF FORD FUSION

The Tech-Net Auto Service 300 will be Greg Biffle's final start behind the wheel of the No. 27 Red Man Moist Snuff Ford Fusion. Over nine starts in the 27 this season Biffle has registered two runner-up finishes, three top 5s and seven top 10s. With a top 10 at Charlotte Biffle will equal the number of top 10s that the No. 27 team had during the entire 2009 season. Scott Wimmer will drive the No. 27 in the stand-alone races at Nashville Superspeedway and Kentucky Speedway. Red Man Moist Snuff cannot be on the car after June 22nd due to a new FDA law that prohibits tobacco brand name sponsorship of any athletic, musical, or other social or cultural event, or any team or entry in those events.

"I love Charlotte; it's a good race track. Earlier in the season we were strong at California and Las Vegas which are similar tracks, so I expect that we'll have a good run this weekend."

"We're taking car 86, which is a brand new car. It is a sister car of car 85, which is the car we finished second with at California. We're very confident in this new car and the body that is on it and feel like it will be a real good car. I watched the All-Star race and tried to learn a few things. We'll definitely have to keep an eye on the way the track changes with temperature. I think being an afternoon race will help keep the track near the same conditions at the end as it was at the start of the race. The track is definitely going to rubber up as the race goes along and that will make the car tighter."

"This is our last scheduled race with Greg in the car so we want to have a strong run. Our biggest motivating factor is to keep performing well and putting a quality product on the track to try and make it easier on the office to bring in new sponsors."
