Biffle Not Negotiating

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Maybe Greg Biffle's future isn't as secure as originally believed.

Last week, Biffle told a national television audience that he wasn't going to be a candidate to take an open seat at DEI, RCR or any other team because he was under contract to Roush Fenway through 2008.

Biffle thought he would be working on a contract extension, but now things are a bit more up in the air.

Biffle said Friday at Michigan International Speedway he won't continue talking with team owner Jack Roush on a contract extension until certain things are finalized within the Roush Fenway Racing team.

"I’m not 100-percent happy with the performance of the team,” Biffle said. “I’m not going to run 20th in points. If I’m not happy, why should I negotiate?"

Biffle's No. 16 team has lost primary sponsor Ameriquest, putting more speculation that car owner Roush might decide to downsize his team to the NASCAR mandated four car cap by eliminating that effort.

AFLAC was signed as an interim sponsor but there are ongoing searches to find a permanent sponsor for the team.

Biffle hasn't completely thrown in the towel at Roush, but rather has decided to just put moving forward on hold for the time being.

“I am convinced that we have the ability to make this a championship caliber car and team," he said. "I’m convinced that Roush Fenway has the ability to make this a championship caliber car and team."

“We’ve got all the tools and resources we need. We need to execute it as far as the management side of it. Have good people and there’s technology we need to get better at.”
