Biffle on Texas: "I really feel like we should have won the race at Texas earlier this year but it just didn't work out that way. We always run well there and I'd like to go back this weekend and get the win I think we should have had there in the spring. Right now all we can do is go out there and focus on winning and finishing the highest we can in the point standings. I think we've got a good chance at these last three races and I'm looking forward to them."

Erwin on Texas: "We had a really good run at Texas in the spring and we're taking the car that we finished third with in Kansas a few weeks ago. We generally run well in Texas and I believe this weekend will be no exception. The track suits Greg's driving style and that always helps. Texas allows for fast and exciting racing so it should be a good show for the fans down there. Greg led 93 laps in the spring race and we had a little problem in the pits that he was able to come back from for a third-place finish. If we can avoid any little problems like that, I don't see why we can't get this 3M Ford into victory lane.

Notes:

Following a fourth-place finish in Talladega, Biffle moved up to seventh in the point standings.

Biffle led 93 laps before a lugnut issue kept him in the pits for longer than usual. He restarted 11th after the stop late in the race and picked up eight positions in the closing laps for a third-place finish.

Biffle's history at Texas goes from one extreme to another as he has four top-10 finishes but he also has five finishes of 30th or worse due to on-track incidents or part failures.
