NASCAR driver stats, preview information for the 2014 season
Roush Fenway Racing's Greg Biffle scored an important victory for his team and RFR's manufacturer when he won last June's Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway. It was the Ford Motor Co.'s 1,000th victory across NASCAR's three national series.
That turned out to be the Vancouver, Wash., veteran's only victory of the year. Finishing ninth overall, it was a bit of a setback from 2012 when Biffle had two wins and finished fifth in the standings. During his third year with crew chief Matt Puccia, Biffle's No.16 Ford Fusion didn't have quite the consistency of the prior season.
Biffle’s best year was 2005 when he finished second on a tie-breaker with teammate Carl Edwards behind NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart. Biffle fashioned six victories that season, a career high. He is a prime example of Jack Roush’s driver development program and is one of three drivers to win both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (2000) and NASCAR Nationwide Series (2002) championships. Biffle has collected 55 victories across NASCAR's three national series putting him in a three-way tie for 15th-place all time with Ron Hornaday Jr. and Rusty Wallace. He was also the Sunoco Rookie of the Year in both series in 1998 and 2001, respectively.
From 1994-1997, Biffle raced in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series wining late model stock car championships at Tri-City (Wash.) Raceway and Portland (Ore.) Speedway. He was recommended to Roush by 1973 NASCAR premier series champion Benny Parsons, a former television commentator for The Nashville Network. Parsons watched Biffle compete in the 1995-96 offseason racing at Tucson (Ariz.) Raceway Park.
