Biffle on Bristol: "Bristol has to be one of the most exciting tracks we go to especially for the fans. We've run well there in the past and I think that if we can qualify up front, we should be able to keep it up there. We've had a top-five car every week this season and I don't see any reason why it would be any different this weekend. We're taking the car we finished 10thwith in Vegas but we should have gotten a top five out with it out there. A win a Bristol would be incredible but if we can get out of there with a solid top five, I'll be happy."

Erwin on Bristol: "Qualifying, qualifying, qualifying. Qualifying is crucial at Bristol for two reasons. The first is that pit road at Bristol is different from everywhere else because we pit on the frontstretch and the backstretch and there are no openings in pit wall so the only good pit selections are the two ends of pit road on each side. If you don't get one of those four, you run the risk of having trouble getting in and out of the pit box because they are so small. The other reason qualifying is so important is obviously for track position. It is extremely difficult to pass at Bristol so track position is everything. If we can qualify well this weekend, then we should have a good run."

Bristol Notes

* Biffle is currently third in the point standings following his eighth-place finish in Atlanta.

* Biffle is only 59 points out of the lead and holds a 110-point advantage on Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the 13thposition.

* This weekend in Bristol the No. 16 Ford Fusion will feature a Census 2010 paint scheme for the second of three races with that paint scheme.

* While it costs the government just 42 cents for a postage paid envelope when a household mails back the form, it costs $57 to send a census taker door-to-door to follow up with each household that fails to respond.

* The Census Bureau estimates that if every household completed and mailed back their census form, taxpayers could reduce the cost of taking the census by $1.5 billion.
