Biffle Confident For 600

A runner-up finish in last Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Lowe's Motor Speedway has Greg Biffle excited about his chances in Sunday night's Coca-Cola 600.

Biffle has struggled in the early part of the season but has recently shown signs of turning things around with his all-star run his latest solid performance.

“I just wish that Saturday night’s race was a points race,” Biffle said. “That would give me a second-place finish and get me headed back up in the right direction.”

In addition to his second place finish to Kasey Kahne, Biffle also believes last week's race was valuable in terms of learning about what will work in the longest race of the year Sunday night.

"Keeping track position is going to be the key,” Biffle said. “The other thing you’ve got to remember is we’re going to have 43 cars out there, so you’re constantly going to be in traffic, probably. Once we get, say 20 to 30 laps into a run, you’re going to constantly be in traffic."

That won't be an unusual situation and one that Biffle says has been happening a lot of late, especially with the new Sprint Cup car.

“The same thing happened in Darlington," Biffle said. "Kyle Busch drove off a little bit, and then when he got in traffic, he couldn’t pass them, and I ran him down. I was right on his bumper. Then I was leading, and I’d catch lapped traffic and I couldn’t get around them. They’d run me down right away. So I see that same situation happening on Sunday night, although this race track is much, much bigger. But what will enhance the racing is more cars on the race track to where everybody is in traffic.”

If Biffle can negotiate through that traffic and keep his car clean over the course of the grueling 600 miles, he feels the No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing team has a chance to celebrate in the Lowe's Motor Speedway victory lane Sunday night.

"Our car has felt good here all weekend," he said. "We can contend, we'll just need some breaks to go our way."
