Biffle Dominates Showdown And Advances To Sprint All-Star Race
CONCORD, N.C. (May 15, 2015) – Greg Biffle dominated the first 20-lap segment of the Showdown in his No. 16 Ortho Ford, leading all 20 laps to advance to the Sprint All-Star race. With his advancement Biffle will make his 12th consecutive appearance in the All-Star race and continue Roush Fenway’s 26-year streak of having at least one car in the event.
“I’m really excited, we’ve worked really hard and we had good track position,” said Biffle. We qualified well. It seems like we’re getting our cars a little bit better. We know we still have work to do, but when it got out in clean air it was pretty fast and we were able to hold off Clint and have a pretty good lead.
“It gives us a bunch of confidence. We know we still have a lot of other cars to compete against, but it felt good to win half a race, so we’ll see what happens.”
The Sprint All-Star race will be televised live on FOX Sports1 Saturday, May 16th at 9:00 PM.
