Roush Fenway Racing announced Sunday that both 3M and Greg Biffle have renewed their contracts for three more years. The new contracts will take 3M, Biffle and Roush Fenway Racing through the 2014 Sprint Cup season. 3M has been a Roush Fenway partner since 2005 and Biffle began his NASCAR career with the team in 1998.

"We set the bar pretty high early on with 3M and they have stood by us on our best and worst days over the years."

"I am thrilled with the prospect of continuing the relationship we have with 3M and what that, paired with the talent of Greg Biffle, means for the success of the No. 16 team at Roush Fenway Racing," said team owner Jack Roush. "Our endeavors with 3M have been successful both on and off the track and will ideally culminate with a championship season for Greg and 3M in the near future."

"We set the bar pretty high early on with 3M and they have stood by us on our best and worst days over the years," said Biffle. "The people at 3M have found a way to innovate and make their NASCAR program work for their incredibly diverse businesses and brands in a way that continues to amaze me. I couldn't ask for a better sponsor relationship as I continue my career at Roush Fenway Racing."

Following the 2005 season, 3M signed on in 2006 as a primary sponsor for Roush Fenway in the Nationwide Series. In 2008, 3M took over primary sponsorship of the No. 16 Roush Fenway Ford in the Cup Series.

"Our relationship with Greg, Jack and the entire Roush Fenway organization has been great for our business," said Bob MacDonald, 3M senior vice president of sales and marketing. "We're very excited about taking our NASCAR program to the next level over the next three years."
