Biffle on racing in Talladega:

"I like racing at Talladega, but it's always a crap shoot. I don't have a great record there, but I've actually had more success in the Busch car than I've had in Cup. I have two top-10 finishes in the Busch Series at Talladega, but I don't even have one in Cup. It's a tough race because you have to be patient, but also know when to get aggressive. You're just waiting for the big wreck and hoping you don't get caught up in it. The key to finishing well at Talladega is to be there at the end."

Eddie Pardue on racing in Talladega:

"Talladega can be a tough race for the crew since you feel sort of helpless. There is only so much we can do to help Greg in the race. We need good pit stops to help him keep, or gain track position, and help him with handling. Probably the most important crew member at a place like Talladega is the spotter. He is the one Greg will rely on more than anyone else to get through this race."

-Greg Biffle has two top-10 finishes in the Busch Series at Talladega in five starts. His most recent was a sixth-place finish last spring, which was a career best at the 2.66-mile track.

-Biffle will be racing RK-368 which is the same car Todd Kluever raced at Daytona in February and finished 14th.

-Biffle took some time for vacation between Phoenix and Talladega. He spent the week fishing in Mexico.

-Talladega will be Biffle's fourth of 19 races he is scheduled to run in the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion this season.
