GREG BIFFLE - No. 16 Grainger Taurus (Finished 16th) -- Top Finishing Rookie:

"It started out not too bad and then after the first stop we got really loose and fell back and almost went a lap down. The rain kind of saved us there. We were getting ready to do another round of pit stops. Then we stayed out longer than anybody had all night on runs and we ended up second there behind Labonte and thought our car was at least as good as those guys were - be able to run up in the top five the rest of the night.

"But then the 23 car, something was pouring out of it, oil of some kind. It's unfortunate. It was the second time, ironically enough, the second time it has happened to me here at Lowe's and it covered the windshield. I totally couldn't see anything - nothing at all out the windshield.

"I had to come down pit road because I couldn't see and the guys had to talk me onto pit road. I didn't know where the speed line started and was trying to get down there without wrecking to start with and trying to look in the mirror because people probably weren't expecting me to stop. It's unfortunate, I got caught for speeding there coming in under green to get a tear off off the window, so it was pretty tough. Then we overheated a little bit.

"Our car was really good right there. It's unfortunate we didn't get back going again because I think we could have finished at least six spots better than we were."
