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.

Last week, Greg Biffle earned his first top-10 of the season at Daytona International Speedway. He finished eighth in the Coke Zero 400—and just like that, he now has back-to-back top-10s with a sixth in the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway.

Biffle’s finishing result was partially aided by fuel mileage, but he was running 10th before the late-race pit stops began. No matter how one looks at it, he was experiencing a turnaround. Momentum could continue to play a big factor in how this organization runs in the coming weeks.

Greg Biffle picked a perfect weekend to score his first top-10 of the season. His eighth-place finish in the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway on the heels of a pole winning run completed a sweep of the top 10 for Roush-Fenway Racing this weekend.

Biffle was the last holdout. Now that he has a top-10 in his tally, Rough might be able break out of their funk, but restrictor-plate, superspeedways are not particularly predictive of how drivers will run on other course.

Greg Biffle posted a lap of 192.955 mph to win the pole for Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

This is the feel-good story of Friday afternoon, but it is unlikely Biffle will remain in the lead pack for long in race trim. He will cost fantasy owners place-differential points and should be avoided in games that offer them.

Greg Biffle scored an average finish of 25.1 in the first seven races of this season, including a 12th at Martinsville Speedway in the STP 500, but no one expected that much from him at Bristol Motor Speedway two week later. He finished 12th in the Food City 500 as well and then improved his last seven races to an average of 20.9—more than four positions better than he scored at the start of the year.

Equally important, he is now scoring solid results on tracks where Roush-Fenway Racing is traditionally strong. He finished 11th in the Coke 600, and needs greater predictability like that to be fantasy relevant.

Greg Biffle might be this week’s top sleeper on the road course of Sonoma Raceway. Seven of his last eight attempts on this track type ended in results of 16th or better.

Last year, he sustained crash damage in both events and slipped to 27th in the Toyota / Save Mart 350, but that is easily offset by the potential of five top-10s in the past four years on twisty tracks.

Greg Biffle was bumped out of the top 24 in the final few minutes of round one of qualification for the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway. He was on track when that occurred, however, and was capable of bumping back into the top 24.

No matter what happens, Biffle will beat his last three Pocono qualification attempts. His best effort in qualification since August 2014 was 25th, but he finished 12th or better in those events.

Greg Biffle’s crew chief Brian Pattie has been suspended two races and the team docked 15 points for violations found at NASCAR’s R&D Center following the Coke 600, according to NBC’s Nate Ryan.

This will be a huge blow to Biffle after it appeared he finally had a little momentum on his side with an 11th-place finish in the 600. NASCAR has not indicated the nature of the infraction. Biffle’s car was the randomly selected one to go back to the R&D Center along with winner Martin Truex Jr. and second-place Kevin Harvick’s machines.

NASCAR has announced penalties and warnings following the Coca-Cola 600 Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 29th.

Greg Biffle (#16 Ford) received a P3 penalty for violations of Sections 12-1; 20.4.1; 20.4.2 a,b,c; 12.5.3.4.1 c. Crew chief (Brian Pattie) has been fined $50,000, suspended from all NASCAR Series Championship Points Events through June 15, and placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31; team has been assessed with the loss of 15 championship owner (Roush Fenway Racing) and 15 championship driver points.

Greg Biffle won the second segment of the Sprint Showdown and will join his teammate Trevor Bayne—who won the first segment—in Saturday night’s All-star race.

Roush-Fenway Racing has struggled for most of the season, but they are making a statement in the exhibition race. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will race hard to give them a complete sweep of the Sprint Showdown, but he has already played a part since he helped push the No. 6 to Victory Lane in segment 1.

Greg Biffle is still seeking his first top-10 of the year after reaching a season-best of 12th on two occasions this year. His best efforts came on the short tracks of Martinsville Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, neither of which are traditional Roush-Fenway Racing strongholds.

Biffle can be parked for most of the season until either the No. 16 begins to develop a little momentum or the short tracks roll back around. This organization is too strong to stay down all year, but points do not get paid for potential.

An accident at Texas Motor Speedway this April snapped a 56-race streak in which Greg Biffle had been running at the end of every race on one of the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He finished 14th in that event. This streak extended all the way back to the 2010 season and he won the Price Chopper 400 by Kraft Foods at Kansas Speedway in October of that year.

That was even more disappointing because he entered the weekend with three consecutive top-20s at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Texas last spring. He was banged about last week at Talladega as well, so it is difficult to predict a momentum shift.
May 3 - 5:02 PM

Greg Biffle has scored only one top-10 finish in his last 18 races at Richmond International Raceway, which gives him an average finish of slightly better than 20th since the start of the 2007 season.

This is not the week to take a risk on Biffle despite some strong runs by teammates in recent short track races. Wait to evaluate the No. 16 on similarly-configured, 1.5- and two-mile tracks later in the season.
Apr 22 - 4:09 PM

Greg Biffle has failed to score a top-10 in his past seven races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He was second last fall in Charlotte Motor Speedway, but went eight races prior to that without a top-10 on this course type.

Biffle’s runner-up last year came as the result of a fuel mileage gamble, so fantasy players have to go all the way back to August 2014 to find a legitimate representation of speed. Biffle should be left in the Texas Motor Speedway garage.
