Biffle Survives 15 Cautions to Finish 13th at Martinsville

Greg Biffle’s No. 16 Ford was part of a three car Roush Fenway fleet sporting pink paint schemes to raise awareness for breast cancer.  Biffle started the 500-lap event 21st and worked his way forward to spend the majority of the race inside the top 10.  Biffle lost ground to fresh tires toward the end, but under the final caution the team took four tires propelling Biffle from 17th to crossing the finish line 13thin his No. 16 3M Breast Cancer Awareness Ford.

Martinsville was full of short track racing action.  The 500 laps saw two red flags and 15 caution flags.  Luckily Biffle was able to avoid major damage in all the on track scuffles that played out during the race.

Biffle started 21st but wasted no time marching his way towards the front.  Over the majority of the race, Biffle only received four tires and minor chassis adjustments but towards the end a tight handling condition developed.

Under one of the cautions during the race, many pitted while Biffle stayed on the track.  The fresh tires of fellow competitors proved to be an advantage costing Biffle time on the track.  The final caution of the day set the field up for five laps to the checkered flag.  Biffle was 17th and came down pit road for tires.  The move proved to be the right one as in the closing laps Biffle was able to work his way up to earn a 13th-place finish at Martinsville.
