Biffle Brings Home Third Place

56715Jpg
Greg Biffle posted a solid day for the Roush Fenway Racing camp in Sunday's Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway notching a third-place finish in the 3M Ford.

Biffle was in the mix at the head of the pack for most of the day and ran with the leaders with a strong car. A late race pit stop for four ties instead of four didn't work out as planned but Biffle was overall pleased with the effort.

"It was a pretty good day," he said. "Car ran really good. I was excited we could run with the 42 car (Juan Pablo Montoya). Last couple years he's been really fast here. We could run with him today. Wish we would have done two tires at the end like everybody else. We thought more guys would do four, but wasn't the case."

Biffle felt his car would have been even faster had he been able to get ahead of the field and benefit from the luxury of clean air.

"It's really unbelievable the difference," Biffle said. "It's like you got brand-new tires when you're out front, it's like you have 20-lap tires when you're six car lengths behind a guy. The thing just stops. Just slides all four tires."

Despite the challenges of trying to run down Jamie McMurray and Kevin Harvick who finished first and second in Sunday's race, Biffle was impressed by the speed he was able to generate with his car and hopes it's a sign for more to come.

"I’m really proud of the guys and this engine program," he said. "This engine ran really good today, but I want to win one of these things. We had the fastest car, but the fastest car doesn’t always win."

Biffle now thinks in order for him to get into victory lane his team will have to employ a different strategy or two in the next several races leading to the Chase cut-off in September.

"We’ve just got to take some chances to win some of these races, I guess," Biffle said. "Taking chances with two tires, I guess, is what we’ve got to try.”
