Greg Biffle, driver of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion, was third-fastest (54.476 secs., 165.210 mph) during Happy Hour at Pocono Raceway on Saturday, after posting the 11th-fastest speed during the day's first practice session. Biffle has two career top-10 finishes at Pocono.

HOW MUCH DO TIMES AND SPEEDS FROM HAPPY HOUR ON SATURDAY TRANSLATE TO THE RACE ON SUNDAY? "A lot of it -- unless the track changes dramatically, but we think the track is going to be pretty similar tomorrow, maybe a little slicker than it is now. So, I really feel like these times are really going to translate over to tomorrow. And, then guys are pretty happy with the lap times -- I haven't had a chance to look at them, but they think we have a top-five car, and that's good for us here. The car's handling decent. We'll look and see if we can improve it at all for tomorrow, and be ready to go."

THE FASTEST TIME GETS RECORDED ON THE TIME SHEET, BUT THE TEAM IS LOOKING MORE AT RUNS, CORRECT? "Right. And there is something to be said for the fastest time, too, because if a car won't run a fast time, normally it's not real racy. Even if it'll run a consistent run for a period of time, if you can't run a semi-fast lap, you've probably got problems overall. So, I'm happy that it runs a relatively fast lap. You know, there are guys that are better than us, but I guess it looks pretty good. You know, to run the third-fastest overall lap and the laps we were running, I think we're pretty good."
