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 Jan 20 - 10:12 AM

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.

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.

Roush Fenway Racing has at least one crew chief change for 2016, adding Brian Pattie to call the shots for veteran Greg Biffle and the No. 16 Ford team next year.

Pattie first confirmed the news on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Wednesday night. A Roush Fenway Racing representative confirmed the move Thursday. Pattie served as crew chief to Clint Bowyer with Michael Waltrip Racing's No. 15 Toyota for most of the last four seasons, switching to David Ragan and MWR's No. 55 team after the first Pocono race of 2015. The Waltrip-owned team ceased operation after the 2015 season. Pattie replaces Matt Puccia, who had been paired with Biffle since the midway point of the 2011 season. During their time together, Biffle posted three victories and six Coors Light Pole Awards, but their most recent stretch has seen limited success. Biffle has been winless since June 2013.-NASCAR.com

Greg Biffle (#16 Bleacher Report Ford Fusion) finished 15th in the November 22nd NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The Roush Fenway Racing driver started 21st in the lineup and completed all laps of the 267-lap event. Biffle, who competed in all of the season's 36 races, scored three top-fives, four top-10s and closed out the season 20th in the final 2015 Sprint Cup Series driver championship standings.

Greg Biffle has been running at the end of the last 53 consecutive races, but that should come as no surprise. He has been on track for 142 of his last 143 races.

Biffle’s ability to keep his car out of trouble has allowed him to improve late in some races, but his average finish of 20.1 this year makes him only the 20th-best in that regard this season and has kept him from being the greatest value most weekends.

Greg Biffle is the only driver in the past six Phoenix International Raceway races who has overcome a qualification effort outside the top 25 en route to a top-10 finish on this track. In fall 2014 he started 28th before finishing ninth.

This week Biffle will not have as steep a hill to climb. He qualified 20th for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 and followed that up with the 24th-fastest speed in Saturday morning’s practice session.

When Greg Biffle crossed under the checkered flag at Talladega SuperSpeedway last week with a 20th-place finish, it marked the 50th consecutive race in which he has been running at the end of the show.

There is an old adage in racing that says a driver must first finish in order to finish first and Biffle’s running-at-the-end streak means that he has not cost fantasy owners a lot of points most week.

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the CampingWorld.com 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His top speed of 201.189 mph was set in the draft.

Fastest speeds do not tell fantasy owners much, but one would rather post a fast time that to be further down the grid. This indicates Biffle was capable of running in a fast pack that was capable of catching another group of drivers.

Greg Biffle stayed on track with more than 85 laps remaining, bypassed a second opportunity to pit, and gambled on fuel to climb into the top five at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the Sylvania 300. He finished fourth.

Biffle stretched his fuel, but he also held off determined charges by a number of drivers with fresher tires. That was only his third top-five and fourth top-10 of the year, but fortunes can turn on less. If Biffle runs well next week, he could be a great dark horse for the remainder of the season.

Greg Biffle will roll off the grid further back than any time in his Richmond International Raceway career. He failed to make the show on time and was forced to take a provisional for the Federated Auto Parts 400. He’ll start 38th Saturday night.

The good news is that he will earn major place differential points for the race. Biffle has finished outside the top 25 only four times in 27 starts and should be able to challenge for a top-20 this week.

Greg Biffle slapped the wall hard in the second round of qualification and flattened the right side of his car. He posted the slowest time in the session and will line up 24th.

Biffle may start even further back if he has to go to a backup. Biffle was strong in practice, but his odds of scoring a top-five took a big hit with that incident.

Greg Biffle posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. His top speed was 176.201 mph, which was 0.359 mph faster than second-place Kurt Busch.

Biffle enters the weekend with a four-race, top-15 streak, but he needs to win if he wants to advance into the Chase. That is not completely impossible because Biffle scored his third career Darlington top-five on this track last year.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 01:05:00 PM

Greg Biffle should be a solid mid-cap pick this week at Darlington Raceway. He enters the weekend with four consecutive top-15s on this track, all of which ended on the lead lap.

Biffle finished fifth in this race last year and he had back-to-back victories at the Track Too Tough to Tame in 2005/2006. Fantasy owners should not expect results in that range, but a little strategy should provide a top-10 and that will make him a good value at his cap level.

Multiple drivers have reported that the new aerodynamic package is creating extremely loose conditions. Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart complained they get lose when approaching a car. Greg Biffle pulled up behind Kasey Kahne at the halfway mark in the second practice for the Pure Michigan 400 and caused him to wiggle and push up the track with the same condition.

The same tendency was noted at Indianapolis Motor Speedway a few weeks ago. If passing becomes increasingly difficult, starting position will be more important than ever in fantasy NASCAR handicapping.
