Greg Biffle, driver of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing, will use 3MT Crystalline 90 Window Film on his car during this year’s Daytona 500 on Feb. 26. Biffle tested the new film and the hope is that it will keep his car cooler during long races like Daytona where temperatures can soar inside his car.

Biffle was named Rookie of the Year in the Craftsman Truck series (1998) and the Busch series (2001). He was also the truck series champion in 200 and Busch champion in 2002.

“I am really looking forward to using the 3MT CR90 Window Film in the racecar this season,” said Biffle. “We tried it out last year in Phoenix and I felt like it made a real difference in reducing the solar heat in the car. It can get extremely hot inside the racecar, so anything that can be done to cut the heat helps tremendously.”

The film was first tested by Penske Racing on some 20 windshields over the course of 2011, including Kurt Busch’s #22 car. Its early adoption in 2012 by Biffle is a timely opportunity to enhance the driver’s prowess on the track at the outset of the new season. Since the film is also non-metallized, it raises the stakes for Biffle’s competition because there will be no interference with any of his vehicle’s electronics, so lines of communication will remain as clear as his path to the finish line.

“We’re excited for Greg to adopt 3M’s automotive window films on his car in 2012,” said Jon Hanbury, marketing manager for the 3M Renewable Energy Division. “Great testing results and NASCAR’s approval last year only validates its benefit, and now Greg can take full advantage of 3M’s on-the-track offerings.”
