Greg Biffle will miss Saturday’s Scott’s Turf Builder 300 from Bristol Motor Speedway due to a rib injury. Matt Kenseth will take his place, piloting Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 16 CitiFinancial Ford.
Biffle injured his ribs in a fall he took after fishing with friends on Tuesday. He attempt to jump from a dock to a boat, and lost his footing.
He said that he had felt progressively better in the days following the fall.
Earlier this week, he sat in his Martinsville car, as his Bristol car was already headed to the track. He said that sitting in the racing seat felt comfortable:
Its hard foam and it’s molded so it doesn’t create any pressure points.
Biffle indicated that he could have driven the car in the Nationwide race, but decided to skip it rather than risking further injury if he sustained a crash during the race.
