Biffle Finishes 25th at Phoenix

Rain drenched Sunday afternoon at Phoenix International Raceway, turning an afternoon race into a rain shortened night race.  Biffle started 20th with a Ford that was setup for a day race and turned out to be plowing tight under the lights at night.  The final caution came out just after Biffle had completed a green flag pit stop.  The team attempted to take the “wave around” but the race never resumed due to rain and Biffle was left with a 25th-place finish.

Greg Biffle started the race from the 20th position and during the opening run reported that his Ford was plowing tight.  Under the competition caution, the first opportunity to pit, Biffle visited pit road for four tires, fuel, and wedge and air pressure adjustments.

The adjustments helped with handling but long green flag runs didn’t leave many opportunities to pit for adjustments.  Biffle went a lap down to the field over the course of the race and just after visiting pit road a caution came out on the track.  In an effort to get back a lap the team opted to take the wave around, but the rain returned and the field never got back to green flag racing.  Biffle finished the rain shortened Phoenix race in the 25th position.
