GREG BIFFLE ON AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY

"I'm very excited about this weekend. California is one of my favorite places to go to on the schedule. I'm from the west coast and have family 45 minutes away from the track, so it feels like home to me. I've won three Nationwide races there as well as a Sprint Cup race, so it is a place I've been successful at in the past. Daytona was fun and exciting, but California is the first true test. Some people feel that this race may be a little boring, but from our perspective inside the car, it is some of the best racing. It's a big track, the cars get spread out and there is a lot of strategy involved. California is so much fun, I love it!"

CREW CHIEF RICK VIERS ON AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY

"Auto Club Speedway is a high-speed track where both handling and your aero package are important. We are bringing car 85, which is the car that Jason Keller finished 10th with in the November race at ACS. We feel good about the car and the preparation the crew put in this week. With Greg's experience at this track we should be able to get the car dialed-in quickly and be successful not only in the race but also in qualifying. I look for us to build on the momentum of a strong run last week. With Greg's past performance at this track I feel like we have a good chance of not only running well, but possibly winning this week!"
