KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Greg Biffle has no desire to leave Roush Fenway Racing when his contract expires at season’s end.

"No, not a bit," Biffle said Friday at Kansas Speedway when asked if he was looking outside of the Roush organization.  "Absolutely, 100 percent 'No.' "

Biffle said earlier this week on SIRIUS/XM NASCAR Radio’s "Dialed In" that negotiations are continuing with current sponsor 3M to extend the company’s deal to back Biffle’s No. 16 Ford.  While nothing is imminent in terms of finalizing a new contract, Biffle says talks are continuing in the right direction.

"We have a great relationship.  They're very happy with the program," said Biffle.  "There is a bunch of new people trying to get their arms around all of the business.  They've got a lot of business units inside that '3M' ... which likes having all these sponsors in the garage part of one company.  This is a big deal for them."

While Biffle is adamant about his desire to remain with RFR and the positive direction of the 3M negotiations, he reiterated what he said earlier this week: he’s not losing any sleep over his future, which may or may not involve Roush.

"My concentration is coming here and figuring out with (crew chief Matt) Puccia how we get this car as fast as we can get it, qualify up front and try to win this race," said Biffle.  "That's my focus and ultimately, I’ve got options.  This isn’t the only place, you know.  "I'm gonna have a job.

"Is it a distraction?  No."
