ADVANCE NOTES

 

Biffle at Phoenix       

Biffle has 25 Sprint Cup Series starts at Phoenix, earning five top-five and eight top-10 finishes.  He has led a total of 389 laps at the one-mile track.

 

Biffle has finished runner up twice at Phoenix.  In 2005 he led 189 laps before finishing second.

 

Biffle has an average starting position of 15.1 at Phoenix and an average finish of 15.0.

 

500th Consecutive Start       

Biffle will make his 500th consecutive start this Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway, making him the 17th driver to reach the milestone. Biffle made his Sprint Cup debut in 2002 at California driving for Jack Roush.  Over his 15 years in the series he has earned 19 wins, 92 top-five and 175 top 10 finishes. 

 

The 2016 Spring Race at Phoenix  

Right-front tire wear was an issue across the board Sunday afternoon at Phoenix International Raceway.  Biffle had his hands full with the handling on his No. 16 Ford, but was able to keep the right-front in one piece to cross the finish line 21st.

 

Last Fall at Phoenix

Rain drenched Sunday afternoon at Phoenix International Raceway, turning an afternoon race into a rain shortened night race.  Biffle started 20th with a Ford that was setup for a day race and turned out to be plowing tight under the lights at night.  The final caution came out just after Biffle had completed a green flag pit stop.  The team attempted to take the “wave around” but the race never resumed due to rain and Biffle was left with a 25th-place finish.

 

Pet Calendars Available     

The Greg Biffle Foundation 2017 NASCAR Pets Calendar are available for sale on the foundation’s website www.gregbifflefoundation.com. Proceeds from the calendar benefit the Greg Biffle Foundation which was founded in 2005 to create awareness and serve as an advocate to improve the well-being of animals by engaging the power and passion of the motor sports industry.

 

Biffle on Phoenix:

“I love being out west and Phoenix is a fun and challenging place to race and a great place to make my 500th consecutive start.  It’s hard to find a balance between the two ends because the corners are so different.  Turn one is really like a tight short track, where turns three and four are almost like a 1.5-mile track.  The radius of the corner tightens up on exit.  We aren’t where I’d hoped we’d be at this point in the season, but hopefully we can finish up the season on a high note with a good run this weekend and next.”
