Biffle’s streak still alive

Seth Livingstone - NASCAR Wire Service Monday, Jun 02 1497

Greg Biffle has been running at the finish of 85 consecutive Sprint Cup races, but the Monster Mile put that record in jeopardy on Sunday.

Biffle and Roush Fenway Racing teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. were caught up in a wreck on Lap 135 after A.J. Allmendinger got a bit aggressive on the inside.

Stenhouse got the worst of it, coming down the track and slamming head-on into the inside retaining wall. Although Biffle’s crew was able to repair his 3M Ford, he limped home 108 laps off the pace in 38th place.

“(Allmendinger) stuck it into a hole that maybe there wasn’t enough room for,” said Biffle, whose last did not finish (DNF) came in the 2011 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway when he suffered engine failure. His last crash-related DNF was in the 2011 Daytona 500.
