With six races remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, can Greg Biffle still be a contender?
Certainly, starting from the pole in Saturday's Bank of America 500 can't hurt. Biffle's lap of 193.708 mph broke the existing track record of 193. 216, set by Elliott Sadler for this race in 2005.
But will he be able to maintain his presence at the front of the pack for 500 miles?
"We're certainly not gonna give up," Biffle said. "We're gonna try to win here Saturday night, try to win next week, and that's all we can do is be in control of our own destiny and try to win these races. Is it too late for us to get back in the hunt? Probably.
"Mathematically, it doesn't look good, but it's possible. We're 50 points out. Take for instance last week. We finished sixth and I look at the scoreboard and Brad (Keselowski, the points leader) is seventh. We gained one point, so 49 more weeks and I'll be right there with him.
