1,000th Win for Ford
Biffle claimed the 1,000th NASCAR win for Ford with his victory at Michigan in the spring of 2013. The win made Father’s Day extra special for Biffle since he was able to celebrate with his daughter in victory lane.
Biffle has led a total of 593 laps at Michigan International Speedway. The only other two tracks where Biffle has led more laps are Texas and Darlington.
One Year Ago at Michigan
Early on it seemed as if Biffle’s No. 16 Ford Fusion was on its way to the front, but instead the team spent the race battling for grip. Biffle was able to come back from being a lap down to cross the finish line 20th.

Biffle on Michigan:
“I don’t know what it is about Michigan, but it’s one of my favorite tracks to go to and is a great track for Roush. I’m undefeated in the Truck series, two races, two wins and four wins in the Cup series. It’s just one of those race tracks that I love the way it’s laid out. I love the speed of it. Multiple lanes, we can run two, three lanes wide at a downforce race track and get clean air on the front of the car so you can make passes. It’s always a strategy race and those are the things I love about Michigan and I can’t wait to race there this weekend.”
Puccia on Michigan:
“I’m looking forward to going to Michigan this weekend. It’s always great to go back to Ford’s backyard and always special to run good there because it’s Jack’s backyard. We’ve been working really hard on our cars and are heading in the right direction. Michigan is the perfect track to try and get us our first win of the season.”
