Not sure you will have any voltage drop in that length, so 10-3 wg NM-B, and use a 30 amp double breaker. The cable must be protected, by stapling or running through the joists, depending on how your basement is configured.

67 foot run you can still use 10-3 W/G NM conductor the voltage drop is not that bad at all due most dryer I know typically draw 22 to 24 amp so you are fine with that setup.

You can drill in the floor joints or staple it along the way depending on which way it lay out.

But just make sure keep it a inch and half away from edge of wall and joints so that way the nails or something don't hit at the conductors
