BRISTOL, Tenn.

Greg Biffle knows he wont be perfect all season. Hell take what he can get right now.

The Sprint Cup points leader continued his strong start to the season Friday by winning the pole at Bristol Motor Speedway.

I know this isnt going to last all season, but Im enjoying the hell out of it right now, Biffle said.

He turned a lap of 125.215 mph in his Roush Fenway Racing Ford to take the top qualifying spot for Sundays race. Biffle has opened the season with three third-place finishes and has not qualified lower than ninth.

I gotta pinch myself. I think Im dreaming, he said. Im having a great time, the time of my life.

Its the 10th pole of Biffles career but his first at Bristol. Hes credited his strong start to the season to an offseason overhaul to his No. 16 team. Biffle has a new crew chief in Matt Puccia, and every crew member was changed.

They are a great group of guys; Im happy to have them, Biffle said. Just plain and simply, Matt Puccia is the reason why were running and competing and finishing where we are. This team needed leadership, and he was willing to step up and take the task on, and hes done a fantastic job so far.
