Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway with a speed of 198.949 mph.
The speed came in the draft and is not indicative of how he will run in single car runs. The draft, as always is a great equalizer. Biffle also posted the quickest 10-lap average with a speed of 195.657 mph during his second to 11th laps on the track. Oct 21 - 3:07 PM

Greg Biffle has suffered crash damage in five of his last six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways.

Notably, the one race in which he did not sustain damage ended in a 20th. This July, he overcame dented sheet metal to run in the top 10 with an eighth in the Coke Zero 400. Biffle will probably finish worse than he starts, however, because eight of his last nine races have resulted in negative place-differential points.

Greg Biffle had a mini-surge of three consecutive top-10s this summer; one of these results was a sixth on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway.

That top-10 was also confirmed by an 11th-place finish at Charlotte in May. He slipped to 26th at Chicagoland Speedway, however, and is far from a guarantee.

Greg Biffle has a three-year average finish of 21.2 at Dover International Speedway, but that is only half the story. His last three spring races have been marred by crash damage.

If one looks only at his last three fall races, his average improves to 14.3 with one top-10 and another top-15. This pattern suggests he should be watched closely in practice for signs of becoming a solid dark horse in the Citizen Soldier 400.

Greg Biffle has scored one top-15 in his last eight attempts at Chicagoland Speedway. That came in the 2012 event and is the only time in that span of events he earned positive place-differential points.

Biffle’s best performance in practice at Chicagoland for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 was a 14th-fastest lap in the first practice session. He may surge into the top 15 this Sunday, but he is unlikely to remain there.

Greg Biffle will make his 500th career Sprint Cup start this Saturday night at Richmond Int'l Raceway. 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. Biffle will celebrate this milestone with his friend, and former teammate, Jamie McMurray. The last time two drivers hit their 500th start at the same time was in 1995 with Dale Earnhardt and Terry Labonte at Watkins Glen. Biffle will become only the second driver to make his 500th Sprint Cup start at Roush Fenway Racing, joining Mark Martin who made his 500th start in March of 2002. All but six of Biffle’s 499 starts have been in a Roush Fenway Ford. The veteran driver has led 5,824 laps during his Sprint Cup career, claimed 13 poles and finished inside the top 10 in almost 40 percent of his races.-Roush Fenway Racing

Greg Biffle is one of only three drivers entered this week with multiple wins at Darlington. His two victories are surpassed by Jimmie Johnson with three and the un-retiring Jeff Gordon with seven.

Biffle is also the most recent driver to win Darlington back-to-back. He won the 2008/2006 Dodge Charger 500s in May 2005/2006. While he has not visited Victory Lane again, he scored a top-five in the 2014 Bojangles' Southern 500.

Greg Biffle spun five minutes into the first round of practice and dented his back rear fender. His time of 122.529 mph was faster than only two other cars at the time and he will almost certainly fail to advance to the second round.

Biffle is going to roll off the grid at the very back, in fact. He should earn major place-differential points Saturday night.

Greg Biffle spun harmlessly down the front stretch with 46 minutes remaining in final practice for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Biffle did not make any contact and will simply loose a few laps to change tires. He was third on the speed chart at the time with a lap of 128.040 mph.

Greg Biffle struggled through back-to-back results of 25th or worse at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2015, which interrupted a string of six top-20s and 10 such results in his last 11 Bristol attempts. His 12th-place finish in the Food City 500 should put him back on target.

Bristol has always been one of Biffle’s better tracks. During his career, he has finished 12th or better in 70 percent of his starts and with a career average of 13.1, this ranks as his second-best track.

Greg Biffle had a mini-surge during the month of July. From the Coke Zero 400 through the New Hampshire 301, he scored three consecutive top-10 finishes—which were his only top-10s in the season. He crashed at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and that stalled his momentum completely.

It is difficult to know if a driver is going to bounce back from an accident and often only time will tell. Biffle finished 25th the next week at Pocono Raceway and crashed again at Watkins Glen International. Now fantasy owners can resort to how they treated him at the start of the season.

As time ran out on the first practice session, Jeff Gordon jumped from 24th to 22nd, moving the Greg Biffle to the bubble (24th). Biffle’s crew thought he was safe, but Chris Buescher was on track and logged a lap of 175.987 mph—jumping to 18th in the process, and bumping Biffle from round two. Biffle’s speed was 175.603 mph.

The knockout style qualification has made time trials entertaining. Notably Buescher’s fast lap came on his third run, which suggested that a little heat in the tires adds speed. Biffle will start the Pennsylvania 400 in 25th as Buescher continues to show incredible improvement in the Cup series.

The June Axalta We Paint Winners 400 was the worst finish for Greg Biffle in his last 10 races at Pocono Raceway. He finished 26th. In the previous nine events, he finished 24th once but had an average result of 10.8.

Seven of Biffle last 10 races have ended in top-15s and one other result was a 16th. In all likelihood, the No. 16 will finish in the low-teens again this week, so fantasy owners should plan accordingly and put them on their roster when they fill a niche.

Greg Biffle entered the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard with a three-race streak of top-10s that included a season-best fifth on the flat New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He crashed hard on lap 53 and finished 39th—the next to last driver in the lineup.

Pocono Raceway will be a huge test for this team. If they can rebound, Biffle could turn the tide and begin working on moving up the points’ standings. Biffle is well outside Chase consideration and this organization is not prepared to run all the way up to the top 15 from 22nd, but they could be one of the best differentiators in the coming weeks if they consistently challenge for top-15s.

Greg Biffle spent only about seven percent of the New Hampshire 301 in the top 15. He had only a handful of top-five laps, but he was there when it mattered most. Greg Biffle finished fifth after starting 28th at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Biffle added 23 place-differential points to his finishing result total. Momentum is not always built by dominance; sometime luck needs to be added to the formula. Now that Biffle has experienced top-10 finishes in his last three races.
