Greg Biffle scored his best result of the season when he crossed under the checkers second in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In pre-race coverage, we predicted this would be his first top-10 on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway and he beat that projection by a significant margin. Several spots were earned because of his fuel mileage gamble, however.
This is Biffle’s first top-five since last August at Pocono Raceway and it signals a general improvement at Roush-Fenway Racing. He still needs to be evaluated on a weekly basis until he strings several top-15s together. May 24 - 10:49 PM

Greg Biffle earned his season-best starting position in qualification for the Coca-Cola 600. He posted the fourth fastest time and rolls off the grid from the outside of the second row.

This is the second consecutive week Biffle earned a season-best starting position. Last week he started seventh at Kansas Speedway in the SpongeBob SquarePants 400 and earned his best result on an unrestricted, intermediate speedway. With renewed confidence, he could finish better than 12th this week and earn his second top-10 of 2015.

Greg Biffle won the first segment of the Sprint Showdown and will advance to Saturday night’s all-star race.

This will be his 15th consecutive appearance in the exhibition, but his odds in the main event might not be great. His last three starts all ended 15th or worse with an average finish of 18.7. He finished fifth in 2011.

Greg Biffle entered the 2012 Hollywood Casino 400 with two wins and a current seven-race, top-10 streak. Kansas Speedway was reconfigured for that race and Biffle has not scored a top-10 since.

Biffle has been steady in his last three starts on this track with results ranging from 13th to 16th. Given the struggles he has experienced this season, his salary cap is relatively modest. Another low teens finish would make him a good—but not great—value.

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Geico 500. His top speed was 197.929 mph.

Biffle was more than two mile per hour slower than teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in the first practice session, but that was a factor of the size of the draft, plus when and how the No. 16 caught it.

Greg Biffle spun after his first lap of qualification for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. NASCAR allowed him to put on a fresh pair of scuffed tires, but he could not overcome the mistake and will start Sunday’s race 33rd.

Bad luck and trouble continues for Roush-Fenway Racing. Until they reverse their fortune, fantasy players should avoid Biffle until his salary cap drops to a bargain level.

Fantasy owners have come to expect more from Roush-Fenway Racing than they have seen this year. Greg Biffle made a comment at Auto Club about the organization dying a slow death. He is missing only a little each week, however, and has finished on the same lap as the leaders in all but one race.

At his level of experience that is not enough to make him fantasy relevant. He has only one top-15, but could be on the cusp of scoring several top-10s in a row once the switch flips at RFR.
Apr 5 - 6:06 PM

Greg Biffle was responsible for the first caution flag at Auto Club Speedway. He slapped the wall in the first practice session and may have dropped parts or fluid onto the track.

Biffle has struggled at Auto Club to post more than two consecutive top-10s during his career. Last year an overheating problem contributed to a 40th-place finish and he needed a better start to the weekend. He will probably not have to roll out a backup.
Mar 20 - 3:08 PM

In 21 previous starts at Atlanta, Biffle has scored 10 top-10s and another four top-15s, but he rarely finds the very front of the pack. Biffle has only three top-fives, the best of which was a third in 2005.

Biffle should only be used by fantasy players if he fits a specific niche on their roster. Otherwise save him for Kansas, Bristol, or Michigan where he has his three-best career-average finishes.

Greg Biffle is back in the Sprint Unlimited lineup this year after missing 2014’s edition of the race, but he should be able to immediately get back up to speed.

Biffle has a personal three-race, top-10 streak going with a best of second in 2013 and a worst of sixth in 2012. Most of his bad results came after accidents, so he should be a strong threat if he stays out of trouble.

Greg Biffle scored five consecutive top-10s as part of a remarkable run to make the Chase, but his momentum stalled immediately afterward. He finished 19th in the Federated Auto Parts 400 and earned only one top-10 during the Chase.

Both good and bad momentum can carry over from one season to the next, but with significant changes coming at Roush-Fenway Racing after dropping from four teams to three, Biffle should be able to hit the reset switch easily.
Feb 12 - 10:22 AM

Roush Fenway Racing has announced its 2015 crew chief lineup.

Greg Biffle’s No. 16 Ortho Ford will again be headed up by Matt Puccia, who has led Biffle to ‘Chase’ appearances in each of his three full seasons at the helm. "We have seen proven results with Matt Puccia and Greg Biffle and we will look to continue to build on that moving into 2015," said Jack Roush.-Roush Fenway Racing
Jan 6 - 1:08 PM

Greg Biffle earned three consecutive victories at Homestead from 2004 through 2006, but he has earned only one top-five in the seven races that followed.

The good news is that his latest top-five came two years ago, but he has not had a lot of success dialing in the 2014 chassis so it is unlikely he will earn another.

Greg Biffle was as strong as most of the Chase drivers in the Eliminator round. He finished ninth in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k, which was his third consecutive top-15 this season.

Since he was not in Chase contention, that meant that he was a better value in most games and that positive trend should continue for one more week.

The AAA 500 should be one of Greg Biffle’s best opportunities to score a late-year top-five and be one of the best fantasy values in nearly every game. In his last 12 attempts on this track, his worst finish was a 12th and his best was a victory in spring 2012.

Nearly 60 percent of those starts ended in top-fives and his average since fall 2008 has been a respectable sixth. He has struggled off and on this year and might fly under most fantasy players’ radar screens, which makes him one of this week’s best differentiators.
