Greg Biffle led the way by putting his #16 Ford Fusion on the front row for Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 from the Texas Motor Speedway. Biffle will start 2nd to lead all Ford drivers, Trevor Bayne (7th), Carl Edwards (9th), and Matt Kenseth (10th) were the other Ford drivers in the top 10 after qualifying finished. Below is post-qualifying reaction from them and a few other Ford Racing drivers. GREG BIFFLE, No. 16 3M Ford Fusion (Qualified 2nd) – “What had an effect was the ability to keep the gas down in one and two. I drove it down in there and committed but couldn’t hold it down from the center out. The car was sliding and skating and I probably carried too much speed on entry and paid the price on exit. I backed it up a little in three and four and got a better three and four but the 48 put down a heck of a lap going that early. I am sure some guys that are faster here are coming up but we will have to wait and see.” TREVOR BAYNE, No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion (Qualified 7th) – “That wasn’t a bad run for us. I didn’t know how much we would pick up there. Some cars were four-tenths, some were two and some didn’t pick up any. I think we got about four there. The car got a little too tight. We over-adjusted from practice but it went faster so they went the right way with it which is a really good problem to have. At least we know what we needed now. I don’t know how it will stack up but at worst it will be a top-20 spot for us and we are in the show. That is always something that crosses my mind right before we go out. We aren’t even guaranteed to be racing when we go out. I hoped to run a 50 today and we ran a 48 so I think we did okay there.” CARL EDWARDS, No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion (Qualified 9th) – “We were just a little bit tight. We only made one run in practice so I am pretty happy with that qualifying effort. I think it is pretty good. The good news is I think we have a really fast race car for the race on Sunday, so I am really excited about getting out here and racing with it.” Marcos Ambrose, No. 9 Mac Tools Ford Fusion (Qualified 15th) - “It’s been a brand new day here with a new crew chief and I think it’s been a really successful day so far.  I missed it there in qualifying a little bit, just didn’t get to the bottom.  But we’ll take this as a really good positive step for our team and look forward to the race.” CASEY MEARS, No. 13 GEICO Ford Fusion (Qualified 20th) – “We were really loose and we were loose in practice too. We made some changes to tighten it up but the track picked up so much speed and everyone is running a half-second faster. When it did that the front end traveled and got into the bumps, the splitter did, and then center-off we were really free and couldn’t keep the throttle down like we wanted to.” ARIC ALMIROLA, No. 43 Farmland Ford Fusion (Qualified 14th) – “We were really good in practice and I ran the middle and was undecided on if I should run the middle or top but I just got too tight. We were a little too tight but it is all good though because I think we will be really good on Sunday.” FORD QUALIFYING RESULT 2nd        Greg Biffle 7th        Trevor Bayne 9th        Carl Edwards 10th       Matt Kenseth 14th       Aric Almirola 15th       Marcos Ambrose 20th       Casey Mears 30th       David Gilliland 31st       Scott Speed 33rd      David Ragan 35th       Josh Wise 43rd      Ken Schrader 37th       Michael McDowell DNQ    Kelly Bires
