Biffle Bounce Back Continues

Greg Biffle notched a second place finish behind Jimmie Johnson in Sunday's Checker Auto Parts 500 at Phoenix International Raceway to continue his second half resurgence.

Biffle had the fastest car on track in the late going of Sunday's race but wound up running out of time in his quest to catch Johnson for the lead and win.

"We just kept working on it and I wish we would have had better track position where we could have got a crack at Johnson because we definitely had a faster car," Biffle said. "But there at the end he just had too much track position on us."

Biffle did get some help from Roush Fenway Racing teammate Matt Kenseth, who realized he was holding up the No. 16 Ford.

"I thank Matt Kenseth for pulling over," Bifle said. "He pulled over and let me have a crack at him. We just needed Jimmie to make a little mistake and we would have been on him, but those guys are pretty good at not making mistakes."

Biffle's day didn't start out well but he and his crew were able to adjust the car throughout the 312-lap event and in the end, had one of the best cars out there.

"I struggled all day with it not turning and then loose in," Biffle said. "We just kept doing air pressure and wedge and all kinds of things.

"We got onto something at the end I wish we would have done at the beginning instead and felt we may have won this thing if we would have been on to what made the car go earlier in the race."

It was Biffle's fifth top five of the season and his 11th top ten. With his win in September at Kansas and recent string of solid finishes, Biffle believes he's getting back on track.

"Things have been much better of late than they were last year and at the beginning of this season," Biffle said.
