Loudon, N.H. (June 27, 2008) – Greg Biffle announced today that he has signed a three-year extension of his contract with Roush Fenway Racing. Biffle has been with Roush Fenway Racing since 1998. During his 10 years at Roush Fenway Racing, Biffle has accumulated 46 wins, 166 top-five finishes and 250 top-10 finishes in 496 starts. In 2002, Biffle took the NASCAR Nationwide Series title making him the only driver in NASCAR history with both a Nationwide and a Craftsman Truck Series championship title. He is currently seventh in the Sprint Cup point standings driving the No. 16 3M/Dish Network/Jackson Hewitt-sponsored Ford Fusion.
Biffle is looking forward to the continued relationship with Roush Fenway Racing as well as a long-term partnership with 3M.
“I’m extremely happy and relieved to have this contract complete,” said Biffle. “I have a team that can contend for the championship this season and for future seasons as well. 3M has been an incredible partner for several years now and having them on board made the decision even easier. All the elements are in place: the resources of Ford and Roush Fenway, the excellent team, the outstanding cars and having a great primary sponsor like 3M for the next few years.”
In addition to Biffle’s Cup Series program, he is also running a partial schedule in the No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this season.
“I would like to run another partial schedule in the CitiFinancial Ford next season,” Biffle said. “We’re still working out the schedule but I have always had fun racing in the Nationwide Series so I’d say it’s likely you’ll see me there in 2009.”
