Greg Biffle roars into Sunday’s Bank Of America 500 from the Charlotte Motor Speedway having placed 4th here in May. He has zero wins in 19 races at the track, but was close to victory in that last race. He led 204 of the 400 laps that race and needs a good run to get back into the Chase discussion.


Team:          No. 16 3M / IDG Ford Fusion

Crew Chief:  Matt Puccia

Chassis: Primary: RK-817   Last ran Chicago – finished 13th

                Backup: RK-803    Last ran Pocono – finished 15th    


Biffle on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway: “I’m excited to be at home this week and racing at Charlotte.  We ran well there in the spring and led a lot of laps.  We also ran well there in the fall last year, so maybe this weekend will be our first Chase win.  Charlotte changes the most out of any track we race at from evening to night.  We’ve been fast, but as the rubber gets down the handling changes.  We’ve got to stay up with the track to win there Saturday night.”


Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Charlotte Motor Speedway: “Traditionally we run well at Charlotte and led a lot of laps there in the spring.  Charlotte is a typical 1.5-mile race track with a lot of grip.  The challenge is being able to adjust from the conditions changing as the track rubbers up.  So that’s the challenge that we’ll have in front of us, but we are excited to be bringing the car we won Michigan with.”


The Car: Chassis 817 made its debut in Indy with a third-place finish.  In its second outing at Michigan Biffle took home the win, and its last time out Biffle crossed the finish line 13th at Chicago.


Point Standings: Biffle is currently ninth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver point standings, 49 points out of first.
