Report: Biffle To Re-Sign With Roush
Multiple unnamed sources have confirmed that Greg Biffle will stay with Roush Fenway Racing next season, according to the Charlotte Observer. An announcement could come as early as this week.
Biffle was originally expected to re-sign with Roush after he said he was close to an extension with the team. At that time, he also said that his sponsor, 3M, was close to an extension, making the deal seem all but certain.
Shortly thereafter, however, Biffle downplayed how close they were to an extension, making it seem like he was going to leave the team. Several unnamed sources said that he was on his way out at RFR.
Darrell Waltrip recently added fuel to the fire when he hinted on live TV that Biffle was going to end up at Michael Waltrip Racing, which seemed to shock MWR co-owner Michael Waltrip, who was sitting next to him at the time.
Now, we’re back where we started, with Biffle seemingly close to a deal to stay with RFR.
At Pocono Raceway, he said:
I really like the program at Roush-Fenway, I really like (sponsor) 3M and that’s really my focus. I have talked with other teams and there are options there but I think Roush is where I want to stay. … I’m hoping we have [a deal] done in the next month or so. If we don’t have something before…I’m going to say at the end of July….I’m going to have to make a decision.
It appears now, that Biffle will get his wish.
