Biffle Wants Winning Ways Back

Biffle comes into Saturday night's eleventh race of the Sprint Cup Series season fifth in the point standings. But although he's off to a solid start he's not completely satisfied with the way things are going.
"I’m not 100 percent happy because I don’t have any wins," Biffle said. "If I had two wins and was fifth in points, I’d be feeling a lot better. I hate it that I lost those couple spots with those bad races."
Despite finishes near the front of the field Biffle is disappointed the No. 16 Ford hasn't been in contention for more wins in the early going of the season.
"I thought we would be in the top 10 in points so many race in, but I kind of personally felt like we would have a win by now," he said. "We finished up the season really good and we started off good, and I thought we could get one of these.
"Ironically, the places that we’ve run good at, we’ve run terrible. Phoenix is one of my best places. It’s a race track I really like and at Richmond we’ve always run fairly well."
A return to Darlington and a trip to Dover next weekend have Biffle enthused about his opportunities to finally find victory lane.
"I know here and Dover are two of my favorite places to come," Biffle said. "We stand a chance to win here, so those two races (Phoenix and Richmond) were really a thorn in our side. Talladega, too, because there we were pushing Jamie for the win and finished 17th, so that kind of hurt on the points front from running really good to finishing 17th."
Adding to the frustration is the fact that no Ford team has won in the Cup Series this year, an issue Biffle is very aware of.
"We know we haven’t won and none of our teammates have won," he said. "We continue to try and get better and better and we’re searching here. I think a lot of our teams – probably six of the teams here – are a little bit different with a different setup, different this, different that, different front geometries. We’re all kind of over the map and we’re hoping somebody hits on something."
Overall Biffle isn't pleased with the direction his team has headed in recent months but he remains optimistic.
"I thought we were at the beginning of the season, but the last three weeks, no," he said. "This is a new week, so we’ll see what happens here."
