Daytona Shootout: Greg Biffle preview

Biffle on the Bud Shootout: "I can't wait to get the season kicked off with the Shootout. The Shootout is a big deal if for no other reason than it is the first race of the season. It's not a points race, so we can go out there and just have fun...

Biffle on the Bud Shootout: "I can't wait to get the season kicked off with the Shootout. The Shootout is a big deal if for no other reason than it is the first race of the season. It's not a points race, so we can go out there and just have fun with it. It's always good to get the extra laps and be able to experiment with a few things during practice and even the during the Shootout. That Saturday should be pretty exciting for the fans in Daytona with qualifying for the Daytona 500 earlier that afternoon. I think we're all just looking forward to getting back to racing."

Erwin on the Bud Shootout: "It's obviously very advantageous to be in the Shootout to get the extra track time for the Daytona 500. If you can go down there and run well in the Shootout, that can be a big morale booster for next week. It just really gives everyone on the team including the driver a chance to kind of work the bugs out before we get into a points race. Our pit crew is exactly the same as last year so they don't have to use this like some teams do as their first time to pit under real race conditions but it has been a while since Homestead so it can't hurt."
