Biffle on Texas: "I'm definitely ready to get back on the track this weekend in Texas. A top-10 this weekend would be good but we certainly have a goal to win. I've always liked racing at Texas and we've had some success there in the past so I don't think it's unreasonable to go there with high expectations. I'm looking forward to having Post-it on the car this weekend for their 30thAnniversary. We won three races with this paint scheme back in 2005 so it would be awesome to get it back into victory lane."

Erwin on Texas: "We did a tire test at Texas back in January but we didn't run with the new shark fin on the decklid and Goodyear has actually decided to bring back a different tire than the one we tested with so I'm not sure the test will give us much of an advantage. We were decent on speed at the test compared to the cars we tested with (14, 2 &83) but we'll have to see how that carries over this weekend. We should run in the top 10 at Texas. We ran well there last spring and probably could have won if we hadn't had a problem in the pits during a late stop. We are obviously disappointed with our run last weekend at Phoenix so it is important to get our momentum back this week."
