Biffle on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

“I’m jacked up going to Texas and I cannot wait.  I love that race track and we have Filtrete on the car this weekend.  Texas is a challenging place, coming off of turn two the track really flattens out, but getting into three and four it’s different on both ends, making for a kind of a long sweeping corner.  Typically we run the bottom in three and four, and maybe run up the race track a little bit in one and two.  Kind of a double dog leg down the frontstretch and it can be a little bit challenging getting to pit road for green-flag pit stops.  We’ve run really really well there, I’ve had a lot of success at Texas, and I feel like it could be our first win of the season coming up.”

Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

“Everyone is fresh, recharged and ready to go to Texas.  Texas has always been good to us, and it’s one of the faster 1.5-mile tracks that we go to on the circuit.  Traditionally, the No. 16 3M team has run really well there.  We’ll start somewhat in the daylight and end at night, so you have to have your car adjustable enough so you can change with the changing conditions.  We currently have the points lead and look forward to extending that lead with a good solid run at Texas.”
