Greg Biffle has been running at the end of the last 53 consecutive races, but that should come as no surprise. He has been on track for 142 of his last 143 races.
Biffle’s ability to keep his car out of trouble has allowed him to improve late in some races, but his average finish of 20.1 this year makes him only the 20th-best in that regard this season and has kept him from being the greatest value most weekends. Nov 21 - 1:29 PM

Greg Biffle is the only driver in the past six Phoenix International Raceway races who has overcome a qualification effort outside the top 25 en route to a top-10 finish on this track. In fall 2014 he started 28th before finishing ninth.

This week Biffle will not have as steep a hill to climb. He qualified 20th for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 and followed that up with the 24th-fastest speed in Saturday morning’s practice session.

When Greg Biffle crossed under the checkered flag at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week with a 20th-place finish, it marked the 50th consecutive race in which he has been running at the end of the show.

There is an old adage in racing that says a driver must first finish in order to finish first and Biffle’s running-at-the-end streak means that he has not cost fantasy owners a lot of points most week.

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His top speed of 201.189 mph was set in the draft.

Fastest speeds do not tell fantasy owners much, but one would rather post a fast time that to be further down the grid. This indicates Biffle was capable of running in a fast pack that was capable of catching another group of drivers.

Greg Biffle stayed on track with more than 85 laps remaining, bypassed a second opportunity to pit, and gambled on fuel to climb into the top five at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the Sylvania 300. He finished fourth.

Biffle stretched his fuel, but he also held off determined charges by a number of drivers with fresher tires. That was only his third top-five and fourth top-10 of the year, but fortunes can turn on less. If Biffle runs well next week, he could be a great dark horse for the remainder of the season.

Greg Biffle will roll off the grid further back than any time in his Richmond International Raceway career. He failed to make the show on time and was forced to take a provisional for the Federated Auto Parts 400. He’ll start 38th Saturday night.

The good news is that he will earn major place differential points for the race. Biffle has finished outside the top 25 only four times in 27 starts and should be able to challenge for a top-20 this week.

Greg Biffle slapped the wall hard in the second round of qualification and flattened the right side of his car. He posted the slowest time in the session and will line up 24th.

Biffle may start even further back if he has to go to a backup. Biffle was strong in practice, but his odds of scoring a top-five took a big hit with that incident.
Sep 5 - 2:21 PM

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. His top speed was 176.201 mph, which was 0.359 mph faster than second-place Kurt Busch.

Biffle enters the weekend with a four-race, top-15 streak, but he needs to win if he wants to advance into the Chase. That is not completely impossible because Biffle scored his third career Darlington top-five on this track last year.
Sep 4 - 1:05 PM

Greg Biffle should be a solid mid-cap pick this week at Darlington Raceway. He enters the weekend with four consecutive top-15s on this track, all of which ended on the lead lap.

Biffle finished fifth in this race last year and he had back-to-back victories at the Track Too Tough to Tame in 2005/2006. Fantasy owners should not expect results in that range, but a little strategy should provide a top-10 and that will make him a good value at his cap level.
Sep 3 - 4:18 PM

Multiple drivers have reported that the new aerodynamic package is creating extremely loose conditions. Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart complained they get lose when approaching a car. Greg Biffle pulled up behind Kasey Kahne at the halfway mark in the second practice for the Pure Michigan 400 and caused him to wiggle and push up the track with the same condition.

The same tendency was noted at Indianapolis Motor Speedway a few weeks ago. If passing becomes increasingly difficult, starting position will be more important than ever in fantasy NASCAR handicapping.

Greg Biffle spent less than 15 laps among the top five, but one of them was critical. He advanced from 14th to fifth as cars around him were forced to take fuel and he was scored in that position at the end of the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway.

This was Biffle’s first top-10 in the past nine weeks and only his second top-15. It is too soon to jump on his bandwagon, but momentum has shifted with less stimuli.
Aug 2 - 8:17 PM

Greg Biffle has earned one top-10 in his last nine attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, but he made the most of it. The No. 16 finished second to Carl Edwards in the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

That position was earned through a fuel mileage gamble and is one of only three top-10s in his last 23 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. Biffle should finish in the mid-teens range at Kentucky Speedway in the Quaker State 400 and should only be used if he fits the final niche on one’s roster.
Jul 9 - 12:29 PM

In addition to rolling out a backup car, Greg Biffle was forced to change his engine for the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway. No matter where he qualifies, he will have to start from the back of the pack.

Starting position is meaningless on plate tracks and Biffle’s ability to get to the front is not in question. He has not finished among the top 15 in his last seven Coke Zero 400 attempts, however, and cannot be considered a favorite this week.
Jul 3 - 5:59 PM

Greg Biffle was expected to be the primary driver at Roush-Fenway Racing after the loss of Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth. The organization has struggled, however, and the No. 16 has only two top-10s this season.

One of these strong finishes came in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and was partly aided by strategy. Biffle is at an uncomfortable level in most salary cap games based on his potential, and so long as he continues to finish worse than 20th on average, he is a difficult fantasy pick.
Jun 18 - 2:29 PM

Greg Biffle needs to turnaround his season and that could happen this week at Michigan International Speedway. His third and fourth victories on this track came in his last five starts with back-to-back wins in fall 2012 and spring 2013.

Two of Biffle’s last three attempts ended in top-10s and he may be happy to repeat. At his salary cap and popularity, a top-10 would make him a solid value.
