GREG BIFFLE No. 16 National Guard/Subway
Taurus (Finished 2nd) It
was a great run for the Post-It National Guard car today. This is
what we need to do its championship form right here.
We wanted to win, but we came here and led a lot of laps and ran
real strong and finished second. It just goes to show how solid
this race team is. DID YOU THINK THE CAR WOULD BE THAT
DOMINANT TODAY? No, I had no idea it was gonna be that
good, but Ive got a great group of guys working on this 16
car and I just had a lot of fun out here in Arizona. There are
lots of great fans out here. I love racing at this race track. Its
pretty exciting to come here and run second.
MATT KENSETH No. 17 DeWalt Taurus
(Finished 32nd) We just
had a seal or something go bad in the caliper. That just got us
behind and we couldnt really fix it. We had a real
competitive car. We had great pit stops and everything went
right, we just had a mechanical failure so I dont know what
else we could really do.
ELLIOTT SADLER No. 38 M&Ms
Taurus (Finished 11th) Im
kind of disappointed. I think we had a top-five car. We just
tried two tires at the end and I was way too loose. We lost a lot
of positions and a lot of points. We really want to get that 11th-place
finish and were gonna have to go to Homestead and try to
finish in the top two or three and hope the 24 and the 42 have
problems. We really thought we were gonna gain a bunch of points
on the 42 today and stay even with the 24, but we made a few
adjustments at the end of the race and the car didnt like
it. Thats the way it goes sometimes.
DALE JARRETT No. 88 UPS Taurus (Finished
9th) It was a pretty
good day. We just never could get the tightness out of the center.
Thats the same thing we fought all weekend, but we just
couldnt seem to get that out. There at the end the harder I
tried to go, the more I slid the nose, but we had good strategy.
We had one pit stop that wasnt good and got us behind, but
things really worked out from there. Anytime you can go and run
in the top 10, we hadnt been doing that, so thats
pretty good. YOU MADE A CALL THERE BY STAYING OUT LATE.
Yeah, I just thought that we needed to see how we could run
up front and then I got in with some lapped cars and got the
fender knocked in, so it didnt work out, but I think Kyle
Busch stayed out there and I felt like I could run with him, and
I just got caught in the lap traffic. So it didnt work out
exactly right, but it was still the best call for us because we
were still in good shape when the next caution came out.
Sometimes you just have a feeling so youve got to make that
CARL EDWARDS No. 99 Office Depot
Taurus (Finished 6th) WERE
YOU LOOKING AT THIS AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT RACES IN YOUR
CAREER? Oh yeah, this was a really important race
probably one of the most important of my career. Im happy
with my performance. I feel like today was a successful day. The
only thing I didnt do very well was getting through traffic
there on that last stop, but you can only race so hard and to
come back up to sixth, I think, was a good run for us today. Its
just too bad we have a points deficit were trying to make
up. We didnt cut into it. HOW DO YOU APPROACH
HOMESTEAD? The same we weve approached the races the
last three weeks. We probably have an average finish of something
like second or third, so if we can go and run that way at
Homestead, well be all right. WHAT WILL YOUR MINDSET
BE? We have to go to Homestead with an aggressive mindset.
We cant go there and be conservative. We have to run very
well to get this finished. WHAT HAPPENED ON THE LAST RUN?
Track position just got us there at the end. We gambled. We
thought we were playing the right strategy and we would have had
the right strategy if the car was faster on a short run to get up
through those guys, but we didnt have it. Thats all
KENNY WALLACE No. 97 IRWIN/Sharpie
Taurus (Finished 16th) The
way I look at it was who was I racing at the end and how far did
I get to without ever being in the race car. Id like to say
for never sitting my butt in this race car that I thought we did
really good. Sixteenth is pretty good. Mark Martin was two spots
ahead of me. WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR YOU TODAY
IN THE CAR? The seat and just having no practice. I just
needed to close the rear springs a little. That was my bottom
line. It was just too loose for me.
RICKY RUDD No. 21 Motorcraft
Genuine Parts Taurus (Finished 20th)
Weve struggled with our short track program. I
liked our Martinsville car, but we couldnt bring it because
the body was torn up on it and this car has never run. I
dont know. Were missing it somewhere on these tracks,
but maybe theyll get it fixed over the winter.
GREG BIFFLE PRESS CONFERENCE
YOURE 102 BACK. WHAT ABOUT THE RACE AND NEXT WEEKEND?
It was a great race for us today. I couldnt ask for a
better race car. The guys just gave me a fantastic race car to
drive. This is our last race with Post-It 3M on the race car and
I really wanted to get them a win. Its funny, we won a lot
of races with Post-It on the car this year. I think three of the
five wins were with them and I was hoping that might have been
what we were gonna have today, but it was pretty close. It seemed
like we kind of had it under control and this tells you how the
complexity of this sport and these races can change so quick. Pit
stops, people stay out and people come in two tires, four
we ended up 14th there and got back up to the
top five and pitted again, then a lot of guys took two again. We
had to race our way to the front. It wasnt handed to us
today and there at the end, the 5 didnt really have a lot
to lose. They were a lap down, I believe, and got their lap back.
I think they were, but they played the right pit strategy and got
themselves up there in position. Even though its a one-mile
track, its really aero-sensitive. My car was just a little
bit too loose and just kind of sliding the nose at the end. I
just couldnt get the gas down with Kyle right on my bumper.
I think if I could have got two car lengths in front of Kyle, I
could have drove away from him, but just because the cars are so
aero-sensitive. He would have been in dirty air and I would have
been in clean air and thats what I needed. Thats how
I had my car set up to run. I had been out there a lot of the
day, but I just couldnt pull it off. Then when he finally
cleared me and got in front of me and got two or three car
lengths, then I had such a time trying to get to his bumper or
trying to get inside of him again. Once I got there I knew I was
pretty much cooked. The tires were done.
CAN YOU IMAGINE WHATS GOING THROUGH
KYLES MIND WITH KURTS SITUATION AND YOU AS A
TEAMMATE, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? I dont know what
all happened. I just heard a bunch of stuff through the garage
area. Its neat for Kyle to win. Both of those guys have a
wonderful amount of talent driving ability and it was kind of
funny the race in the spring was exactly the same only I
was chasing Kurt the whole night and he was just that much better
than me and I couldnt beat him. I was wondering to myself
if he was here today if I would have been doing that same thing
because I was out there by myself kind of. I had the best car for
a major part of the day, but I dont know what happened. I
suppose Ill get filled in with all the information when it
DO YOU KNOW WHAT CAUSED THE CAR TO GO AWAY?
I really dont. Sets of tires will be just a little
bit different. I had a couple sets there in the middle part of
the race that were just unbelievable. As the race progressed, I
lost a little bit of turn with the front tires down in one and
two, and in three and four. I took a little bit of wedge out of
it to get it to turn a little bit better, well that just made it
loose on the throttle when I put the gas down. So I didnt
really get that turn back. Kyles car was extremely loose as
well and the track kind of came to them and kind of just barely
went away from us right there at the end. Like I said, I came
from 14th and passed a bunch of lap cars. I fought all
the way back there, drove up to his bumper and just ran him down.
That just used up so much of the tire. Youre punishing the
tire when youre trying to do that and catch guys and run
that much faster to catch them. It takes the goodie out of the
tire and just didnt have enough left when I got there.
DO YOU THINK YOU STILL HAVE A SHOT TO WIN
THE TITLE? No, we needed to do what we did today
lead the most laps and finish second or win, but those other guys
would have had to have bad days in order to put us in the hunt.
Were certainly not in it anymore. I kind of counted myself
out last week, but wanted to keep hopes up that we might have an
opportunity. The reality is that next year were gonna go
after it again.
YOURE THE DEFENDING RACE WINNER AT
HOMESTEAD. DOES THAT GIVE YOU SOME HOPE? If we run like we
did here today is a little bit of hope. I thought three-quarters
of the way through the race I might have a chance to win the last
two, but Kyle came up there and spoiled the fun. Were
taking the same car back to Homestead that we ran with last year,
with the updated body and stuff. We won earlier in the year with
that car one time, so we feel really good about that race car and
going back there.
WHICH RACE DID YOU WIN WITH THAT CAR?
That car we won at Michigan with.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SYMPATHY FOR KURT? Youd
have to. I think youd have sympathy for anybody if you put
yourself in that position and get taken out of the race car. But,
like I said, I dont know any of the details at all about
what happened, what went on, and thats about it. I dont
know anything about it other than I was told this morning that he
wasnt gonna drive it. Thats the first I had heard of
