Greg Biffle swept the top 10 last year at Pocono with a second in the Party in the Poconos 400 and a 10th in the GoBowling.com 400. This June, he could manage to finish only 16th in Pocono’s first race.
Biffle’s flat track record in general has been anemic in 2014 with the 13th-place finish he recorded last week at Indy as his high-water mark. Biffle should only be used if he fits a specific niche on a fantasy player’s roster. Jul 30 - 10:05 AM

Before the Brickyard 400 went green, car owner Jack Roush announced that Greg Biffle will return to Roush-Fenway Racing in 2015 as part of a multi-year contract. The driver rewarded the Cat in the Hat with a 13th-place finish.

That was Biffle’s best effort on a flat track this season. His previous five efforts at Phoenix, Martinsville, Richmond, Pocono, and New Hampshire all ended in a narrow band of results from 15th to 18th.

One aspect of Roush-Fenway Racing’s (RFR) announcement about their 2015 lineup is the news that Greg Biffle will be part of the 2015 lineup for that team; his contract has been extended and characterized as "multi-year." Speculation all year centered on the possibility that he might also leaver the organization.

Biffle will now be the senior driver at RFR and that will improve his performance. Fantasy owners should consider the upgraded results with Jamie McMurray this season after he assumed the role of lead driver with Chip Ganassi Racing.

Greg Biffle entered last year’s Crown Royal 400 with a five-race top-10 streak in which he had an average finish of fifth. He faded to 24th on this track amidst a mostly disappointing season.

This year has not been going much better for the 12-year veteran. The last time he finished outside of the 10th-place mark at Indy, he struggled through three seasons before regaining his form. Fantasy players will want to take a wait-and-see approach.

There have been far more lows than highs for Greg Biffle in 2014 and that could be impacting his contract negotiations with Roush-Fenway Racing.

Biffle has only five top-10s on the season and two of these came in the wild card restrictor-plate, superspeedway races at Daytona and Talladega. Like his teammate Carl Edwards, this could impact his desire to re-sign with the former powerhouse Roush-Fenway Racing and may be creating a distraction. Only one of Biffle’s top-10s came in the past nine weeks and that was scored at Sonoma, which is hardly predictive of how he will run on unrestricted ovals.

Greg Biffle’s Camping World RV Sales 301 effort got off to a shaky start with smoke from his left rear tire. The team managed to hang on until the first caution period, made the right adjustments, and kept Biffle in contention to earn a 15th-place finish.

Biffle remains close enough to the points’ cutoff that he needs to balance his desire to win with the need to earn points. He currently sits 16th in the standings, but with Aric Almirola and Kurt Busch further down the standings and victories in their pockets, Biffle will need to climb to at least 14th to claim a Chase berth.

Greg Biffle has one of the most consistent records on short, flat tracks in past 12 months. Six of his last eight attempts on this course type ended in results of 12th to 18th.

With an average finish of 12.75 on this track type, Biffle might not make his way onto may fantasy rosters but there is some reason to be hopeful. His single top-five during this span came in last year’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire, so he should be watched in practice and qualification.

Success at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway has eluded Greg Biffle in the Cup series.

Just 49 laps into last season’s race at Kentucky, he was collected in an accident, but the team fixed the damage and salvaged a 34th-place finish. Biffle has fallen just short of a win in the Nationwide Series at Kentucky, finishing second three times in a row. In his six Nationwide starts at Kentucky, he has earned three top-five and five top-10 finishes. Biffle won in 2000 in his only Truck Series start at Kentucky.-Roush Fenway Racing

Greg Biffle continued his streak of top-10 finishes at Sonoma by showcasing his road-racing skills and crossing the finish line ninth.

Biffle started the 110-lap event 19th in his No. 16 3M Ford and had all intentions of making the race on just two pit stops, until multiple cautions toward the end of the race foiled the teams strategy. Biffle pitted under the final caution on lap 93 for four fresh tires and fuel, restarting the race 15th. From there Biffle charged through the field in the closing laps to earn a ninth-place finish.-Roush Fenway Racing
