Biffle Looks To Continue Road Course Success
CONCORD, N.C. (June 24, 2015) – Greg Biffle has proven over the years that he can hold his own when it comes to road course racing. Biffle was born and raised on the West coast and loves heading back that way, especially for road course racing. In his 12 career Sprint Cup starts at Sonoma, Biffle has earned two top-five and six top-10 finishes and has finished on the lead lap in 11 of those starts. Biffle’s last three starts at the 1.99-mile road course have resulted in top 10 finishes.
“I’m a fan of road courses,” said Biffle. “It gives us an opportunity to do something different a couple times a year. I enjoy the challenge. It’s always fun, it’s always something different and I look forward to it.”
Biffle has also found success in multiple series at the other road course race on the schedule, Watkins Glen. In the Sprint Cup Series at Watkins Glen, Biffle has 12 starts, one top-five and four top 10-finishes. Biffle found himself in victory lane in 2000 behind the wheel of the No. 50 truck at The Glen. In his five XFINITY Series starts at Watkins Glen, Biffle has two top-five and three top-10 finishes.
The Washington native knows his way around a road course and looks to continue his streak of top-10 finishes with another solid run this weekend in his No. 16 Ortho Ford Fusion.
