Not taking one for the teamGreg Biffle felt the finish of the Best Buy 400 could have been a little closer, but he blamed Travis Kvapil for not allowing him and Carl Edwards to get by after the final pit stops. "It's a delicate situation to talk about," Biffle said. "Carl and I both spent about 10 laps trying to pass one of our teammate cars [Kvapil]. We lost a tremendous amount of track position." Kvapil drives for Yates Racing, which has a partnership agreement with Roush-Fenway Racing. "He deserves to be out there like anybody else," Biffle said of Kvapil. "But he was running by himself and he held us up for 10 laps. That's unacceptable." Kvapil finished 11th, but was one lap down. Biffle was asked if he considered bumping Kvapil out of the way. "You can't get close enough to do that," he said. "I would have done it in a second, but I just couldn't get there. I would have jacked up his tires and sent him in the fence backwards, but these cars are so aero-tight and so big that you can't do it." Terry Blount covers motorsports for ESPN.com.
