Biffle Leads RFR with Top-5 Finish at Darlington

DARLINGTON, S.C. (April 12, 2014) – Greg Biffle turned in his first top-five finish of the season to lead Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) with a fifth-place finish in Saturday night’s 500-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race at Darlington Raceway. Biffle used a combination of pit strategy and speed, leading five laps with his No. 16 3M/Red Cross Ford Fusion en route to the strong finish. 

“We worked really hard all night and probably didn’t have a fifth-place car but we worked really hard on it and we had good pit stops and track position was everything tonight,” said Biffle. “Those last restarts we were on the outside, the inside and then the outside and we picked up one or two spots there at the end. Everybody worked hard and we will keep working.”

Carl Edwards battled the “Lady in Black” to a 13th-place finish, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished 20th.

RFR and the NSCS will take next weekend off for Easter, before turning to action in two weeks at Richmond International Raceway. RFR boasts five wins in the Sprint Cup Series at Richmond, including Edward’s win there last fall.
