GREG BIFFLE - No. 16 National Guard/Subway Taurus (Qualified 2nd)

IT WAS A SOLID LAP.

"Yeah, it really is. The guys have really worked hard on the National Guard Ford Taurus car here. It's our best car. Doug and Bobby and all of the guys just do a great job. We made a small shock change just before our qualifying lap and it just really got down on the race track and I could use the throttle a lot. It was just a little bit too free. We were gonna go up a pound of air in the right rear, but I'm glad we didn't. It was just right. I'm excited. I've got a really good car for Sunday. I'm pretty busy this weekend, so it's a good way to start on Sunday."

HOW ARE YOU BALANCING YOUR TIME WITH ALL THREE RACES THIS WEEKEND?

"I'm just running between each garage and make sure I spend enough time with each crew chief. It's fun. I'm doing that Truck for Ford. Brien (Henry) did the paint scheme on it and won the challenge for fifth through eighth graders to paint the best truck and we're excited to run that 44 truck for Rick Crawford today."

HOW WAS THE LAP?

"It was a really good lap. The car was just perfect. It went down in the corner and the car rotated just right. I went for the throttle and it was just a little bit free and I just kind of drove the race car. The guys just did a great job with it. It's our best Ford Taurus body that we have and it's our best chassis. This is the car I won Michigan with and I'm just really excited about starting up front. I may not be on the pole, but I'm gonna be in the first two rows and that's what counts."

HOW DO YOU THINK THE CAR WILL RACE?

"It won Michigan and finished third at Kansas and led the whole day, so I'm expecting it to race the same way as it did those two."

WERE YOU SURPRISED WITH THE LAP?

"I expected a good lap. I hadn't really run a full-fledged, all-out lap yet and I figured I could get in the teens. I felt pretty confident about it and we got in the 11s."
