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.

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.

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.

Before blowing an engine on lap 146 of last week’s Auto Club 400, Greg Biffle had been running at the end of 58 consecutive races—which was the longest active streak in the field.

Biffle’s last DNF (Did Not Finish) before last week came in the July 2014 Coke Zero 400 because of an accident. Notably, he survived crash damage on more than 12 occasions in the next 58 races, but when the engine expires, there is nothing that can be done. NASCAR does not allow teams to replace engines during a race.

Greg Biffle ran into Kyle Larson in the second practice session for the Auto Club 400. Both cars were significantly damaged.

They may not need to roll out backup cars, but fantasy owners need to watch for updates Sunday morning just in case. Neither driver will have to give up great position if that happens because Biffle qualified 22nd and Larson would drop from 32nd.

Greg Biffle (#16 Cheez-it Ford Fusion) has 12 Sprint Cup Series starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, earning two top-five and six top-10 finishes.

He holds his best average starting position of a 10.6 at LVMS. Last time at Vegas: Biffle started 16th and searched for front turn most of the race, but continuously logged solid lap times and even held off a hard charging race leader to finish 14th. Biffle on Las Vegas: "I love the city of Las Vegas and I love the race track. We run well there and it’s our first race of the season with Cheez-it on the car. It takes a lot of things to win at Vegas. Track position is crucial. We’ve been really close to winning in the Cup car before and hopefully this is it."-Roush Fenway Racing

Last year was the first time in the past five Atlanta Motor Speedway races in which Greg Biffle failed to finish on the same lap as the leaders. He finished 25th—five laps off the pace.

Roush-Fenway Racing has been experiencing a lot of problems in recent seasons, but Biffle had four consecutive top-15s before last year’s struggle. He should be able to snap back and that will make him a solid dark horse this week.

A multi-car accident triggered when Brian Vickers cut a tire marred the early stages of the Sprint Unlimited. When he came across the track, he collected Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, and Greg Biffle.

Sometimes there is simply no escaping bad luck.

Greg Biffle has competed nine times in the non-points Sprint Unlimited exhibition race, earning three top-five and four top-10 finishes.

His best finish came in 2013 when he started fourth and finished second. Biffle qualified for the 2016 Sprint Unlimited via his 2004 Daytona pole. His No. 16 KFC Nashville Hot Ford Fusion will carry along over 2,100 names of restaurant managers for the Sprint Unlimited and the Daytona 500. Each manager represented on the No. 16 is being celebrated for leading the retraining of all employees in the original ways the Colonel made his Fried Chicken.-Roush Fenway Racing

With an average finish that is barely inside the top 20, players might be inclined to believe Greg Biffle is not a very strong plate racer. That ranks him 13th among active, fulltime drivers however, and his 14th top-10s places him 10th on that chart.

NASCAR is about current achievements and five of Biffle’s last six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways have been 20th or worse. Watch him, but only start him if he looks comfortable in the draft during prelims.

Roush Fenway Racing has announced a multi-race partnership with KFC as a primary partner for Greg Biffle and his No. 16 Sprint Cup Series team during the 2016 season.

The partnership will kick off at Daytona Speedweeks and include primary placement in the famed Daytona 500 and Sprint Unlimited All-Star events at Daytona International Speedway. The partnership in Daytona will feature KFC’s recently launched line of smoky and crispy ‘Nashville Hot’ chicken, which comes just in time for the launch of the 2016 NASCAR season. A perennial NASCAR Sprint Cup Chase contender, Biffle has scored 55 NASCAR wins and two championships during his celebrated career. He captured the pole for the 2004 Daytona 500 after winning the 2003 summer event at the 2.5-mile track known as the ‘World Center of Racing.’-Roush Fenway Racing

NASCAR announced the 25 eligible drivers and the format for the season-opening 75-lap Sprint Unlimited at the new Daytona International Speedway motorsports stadium on Saturday, Feb. 13.

The non-points event will be split into two segments with a competition caution at lap 25 separating the segments. The 25 eligible NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers include the 2015 Coors Light Pole Award winners, former Sprint Unlimited race winners and former Daytona 500 pole winners who competed full time in 2015. All 16 drivers from the 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup are also eligible for the race, and any remaining open positions are filled based on 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship driver points. Eligible Former DAYTONA 500 Coors Light Pole Award winners: Greg Biffle, Austin Dillon, David Gilliland, Danica Patrick and #78-Martin Truex Jr.-NASCAR.com

With recent departures by Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards from Roush-Fenway Racing, Greg Biffle became the "man of the house," in that organization with two young drivers as teammates. The dynamic put RFR in a rebuilding mode and Biffle was able to score only four top-10s during the season.

Much more was expected of Biffle in 2015, which means that his salary cap started off high and it probably took quite some time to adjust. Expect there to be a rebound effect this year as his cap starts low and adjusts upwards.
