Biffle scores fourth-straight top-10 finish; Strengthens 2014 Chase Bid
BRISTOL, Tenn. (August 23, 2014) – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. made a late-race surge to score a sixth-place finish to lead three Roush Fenway Fords in the top 10 in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) race under the lights at Bristol Motor Speedway. Carl Edwards came home in seventh and Greg Biffle finished 10th. Including the Roush Fenway contingent, five of the top-10 finishers in the race were Fords.
It was the second-best finish of the season for Stenhouse, behind only a second-place finish at Bristol earlier this season.
It also marked the fourth consecutive top-10 finish for Greg Biffle, who took a 26- point lead for the 16th and currently last qualifying ‘Chase’ position. With only two races remaining before the ‘Chase’ cutoff, Biffle trails 15th position by only five points.
Roush Fenway and the NSCS return to action next weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where Roush Fenway has won six times in NSCS action.
