Biffle and Tryson To Team Up For 2007 Season
Concord, N.C. (November 10, 2006) -- Veteran crew chief Pat Tryson will be paired with Greg Biffle, driver of the Roush Racing No. 16 Nextel Cup Ford Fusion for the 2007 season. Tryson has been the crew chief for veteran driver Mark Martin for the past three seasons. Tryson is one of only three crew chiefs to lead his team to a position in the Chase for the Nextel Cup every year since its inception in 2004 and looks to continue that record with Biffle.
"I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with Greg in 2007," said Tryson. "Obviously our top priority for next season is getting Greg back in the Chase. He's a great driver and I hope to continue my personal streak of making the Chase with him."
Owner Jack Roush believes that Tryson and Biffle will find success as the veteran crew chief and champion driver pair up for the 2007 Nextel Cup season.
"We have an opportunity in front of us to pair a champion driver with a crew chief that has proven to be a championship level crew chief," commented owner Jack Roush. "Pat Tryson and a number of members of the No. 6 Roush Racing team have shown that they can run for a championship every year. Greg Biffle has two championships under his belt and I believe that pairing him with Tryson will be the best prospect for the two of them to run for the championship in 2007."
Biffle's NASCAR record includes a Craftsman Truck Series Championship and a NASCAR Busch Series Championship. He would like nothing more than to add NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Champion to the list. He came very close in 2005 when he finished second in the points, a mere 35 points behind Tony Stewart. Biffle has had nine Nextel Cup wins with Doug Richert as his crew chief and feels confident he can continue to be a top competitor in NASCAR's elite series with Tryson.
"I'm looking forward to the 2007 season and working with Pat Tryson," said Biffle. "I haven't gotten to spend a lot of time with Pat but he's had a good record with Mark in making the Chase three years in a row, so hopefully we won't stop his streak next year."
