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. Jun 22 - 1:42 PM

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.

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.
Apr 9 - 12:38 PM

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.
Mar 23 - 3:49 PM

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.
