Veteran in confident mood as the new season dawns.
Greg Biffle believes that backroom changes at Roush Fenway Racing will put the Ford squad in its best-ever shape as he chases the NASCAR Sprint Cup title.
Biffle, who is on a quest to become the first driver to ever hoist the championship trophy in all three of NASCAR major series, stays with crew chief Matt Puccia on the No.16 Fusion for 2015. But backroom staff changes have given them renewed confidence ahead of Daytona Speedweeks, as NASCAR enters a new rules set following a testing ban – a move which could shake-up the competitive order.
“I’ve got a lot of confidence in the changes Roush has made in the off season and think we have things headed in the right direction,” said Biffle, who made the Chase last year but fell at the first hurdle.
“Roush Fenway has made key investments in the competition department adding knowledgeable people like Kevin Kidd and Mark McArdle, and I’m ready to get back to the track and see what we’ve got for this season.
“In addition there is just a great ‘feel’ in the air at Roush Fenway. There is a great sense of cooperation and everyone is dedicated to getting our Fords up front – which is what we intend to do out of the gate at Speedweeks in Daytona.”
The NASCAR year kicks off this weekend with the Sprint Unlimited race at Daytona ahead of the season-opening 500 a week later on February 22.
