Greg Biffle is getting back in NASCAR!
Ok so he’s not back for a race seat just yet but the “retired” former Roush driver will practice a Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports today in Texas. The 3-time Texas winner will be climbing back into a
car truck for the first time since Homestead 2016.
The Biff won a NASCAR Truck Series championship in 2000, he then followed that up with a Busch Series Championship in 2002. Unfortunately a Cup Championship didn’t follow the previous two. Biffle felt like the best bet to be the first to ever win all three. Biffle’s Cup Career did produce 19 career wins combine that with his 20 Busch wins, and 16 Truck Series wins and he’s only 146 behind Kyle Busch.
At the end of his career Biffle wasn’t happy with the direction of Roush Racing and it was pretty obvious. While his teammates continued to jump ship, Mark Martin to DEI/Ginn, Kurt Busch to Penske, Matt Kenseth to JGR, Carl Edwards to JGR. All the while Biffle stayed committed. At the end he seemed frustrated and at the end of the 2016 season he announced he wouldn’t be back with Roush.
A little over two years away from driving Biffle is coming back in a small way. Sure it’s just a practice but maybe it could lead to something more. The truck series is at its best when you have veterans and rookies going at it. Adding Biffle to the veterans corps would be fantastic for the series.
