Concord, N.C. (October 25, 2012) - It’s no secret that Martinsville is not historically one of Greg Biffle’s best tracks but he’s looking to change that this weekend in front of a dedicated cheering section. Last month Biffle attended a special pep rally at Martinsville High School. The marching band played as he rode in the back of a Ford truck around the athletic field to the grandstands where the Bulldog cheerleaders had made up a special cheer for the occasion.
While the Bulldog football team had not had the season it hoped for and Biffle has not had the Chase he hoped for, both are looking to finish strong. The Martinsville Bulldogs have two games left and Biffle has four races left to put another “W” on the board before the season ends. Biffle is heading to Martinsville this weekend where his best finish is seventh and the Bulldogs face the Magna Vista Warriors who have a 6-2 record coming into Friday night’s game.
Both Biffle and the Bulldogs face an uphill battle but are refusing to give up their goals of finishing strong. Biffle will be proudly wearing the No. 16 Martinsville Bulldog football jersey that the team presented to him at the pep rally for driver intros and with the students receiving free tickets to the race, he expects a loyal (and loud) cheering section on Sunday.
