Greg Biffle

On December 23, 1969, Gregory Jack Biffle was born in Vancouver, Washington. He now resides in Mooresville, North Carolina and is a NASCAR Nextel Cup driver. Greg Biffle was first noticed nationally in 1995/1996 when he took part in the NASCAR Winter Heat series on ESPN2. It was Benny Parsons, a former NASCAR champion and now an ESPN announcer, who encouraged Jack Roush to hire Biffle due to his race performance, noting that if he didn’t, he was likely to regret it as he watched Biffle win title after title.

Biffle won his first Rookie of the Year in 1998 at the Craftsman Truck Series under Roush Racing. Two years later he won his first championship, the series title, which is part of NASCAR’s three major series. Greg Biffle joined the Busch Series in 2001 and won the series rookie of the year award after winning five times and finishing overall fourth in points. The following year Biffle gave Roush another championship in the Busch Series.

In 2003, after racing only part-time previously, Biffle began competing full time in NASCAR’s top circuit where he finished 20th in the final NEXTEL Cup series points. Biffle continued to improve throughout 2004 season. Greg in 2005 finished the racing season tied second with Carl Edwards for the NASCAR Nextel Cup championship. With six race wins behind him he was given second position over Carl.

In 2006, Greg Biffle struggled a lot after his two wins at Homestead-Miami and Darlington Raceway. He finished 33rd at the Brickyard, 24th at Pocono Raceway and 38th at the Watkins Glen International putting him lower on the series points. During the years 2004 to 2006 the Army National Guard became his primary sponsor with other sponsors being Jackson Hewitt Tax Services, Post-it/3M, Subway, Prism Guard Shield and Charter Communications.

Having won just once in the 2007 season, Biffle finished 14th in the standings, and in June 2008 signed a three-year contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing. He became the first driver to win the first two Chase for the Sprint Cup races in a season, which he did at New Hampshire and Dover. He qualified for the Chase again in 2009, but failed to record a win, for the first time since 2002. He did, however, achieve 10 top-fives and 16 top-tens. His career achievements by the end of 2009 included 14 wins, 59 top-fives, and 99 top-tens.

Apart from racing, Greg Biffle has a foundation that he and his wife Nicole manage together. The foundation’s goal is to create awareness for the need to improve provisions for the well-being of animals.
