Greg Biffle on racing at Texas Motor Speedway: “I’m excited about heading to Texas this weekend and hopefully we can make it a sweep.  We tested the 2013 car there about a month ago and feel good about Texas, but to win there you have to have everything right.  You’ve got to drive hard like we did in the spring and there will always be four or five guys to contend with at the end.  You can run up the track, down the track, pit stops are important and the track really flattens off the corner.  You have really got to watch what you do or that thing will sneak up and bite you, kind of like what happened to me in Chicago.” Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Texas Motor Speedway: “Texas has always been one of our stronger tracks on the circuit and we had some success earlier in the year there with a win.  The spring race is a little different than this race temperature wise and this time around we race more in the day.  Texas is one of the more unique tracks in that it’s getting more worn out and much bumpier, making it a little bit harder to get a handle on then some of the more recent tracks like Charlotte and Kansas.  Tires mean a lot there so pit strategy will come into play.”
