Boris Said adds more to Greg Biffle issue



Posted by Pete Pistone


Boris Said has spoken to Greg Biffle and says everything is all better in the wake of their incident Monday at Watkins Glen International Raceway. The two spoke by phone on Tuesday to smooth over their disagreements, which Said explained dates back to last year's Watkins Glen race.

Said visited with Sirius/XM NASCAR Radio's "Sirius Speedway" program on Tuesday and gave some more insight on the situation.

Among the highlights from the segment was Said's follow-up to his post race comment asking people to text him Biffle's address so he could face him:

"I'm glad he called me, because I would have went to his house. I had plenty of people text me his address," he said.

Asked to share more details of the conversation, Said replied he didn't want to "kiss and tell" and that today he "was a lover, not a fighter."

Here's the complete audio of Tuesday's segment:

Boris Said angry at Greg Biffle

Posted by Pete Pistone

Boris Said was involved in Monday's last lap accident that saw David Ragan and David Reutimann get the worst of things with violent crashes at Watkins Glen. But Said was very upset with an earlier incident he had with Greg Biffle. The road racing specialist ran down Biffle after the race to exchange more than words and shared these strong comments with ESPN:

I'm more upset with Greg Biffle. He's the most unprofessional little scaredy cat I've ever seen in my life. He won't even fight me like a man.

If someone texts me his address, I'll go see him Wednesday at his house and show him what he really needs. He needs a friggin' whooping, and I'm going to give it to him.

He was flipping me off, giving me the finger, totally unprofessional. Two laps down, I mean, he's a chump.

I went over there to go talk to him, and he wouldn't even let me get out of the car. Throws a few little baby punches and then he runs away and hides behind some big guys.

But he won't hide from me for long. I'll find him. I won't settle it out on the track – it's not right to wreck cars – but he'll show up with a black eye one of these days. I'll see him somewhere.

It will mark the Carlsbad, Cali. road racing ace's first Sprint Cup Series event with Phoenix Racing. Said has 11 Sprint Cup Series starts at the 1.99 mile road course. He boasts of one pole (2003) and five top-10s. He's recorded a best finish of sixth-place on two occasions (2003, 2004). Said has made two Nationwide Series starts in Phoenix Racing entries, which came in 2005.

Unhappy Stremme departs Latitude 43 Motorsports


David Stremme has left Latitude 43 Motorsports, according to a report from Dave Moody of Sirius Speedway.

Stremme alleges team owner Bill Jenkins has failed to meet his financial obligations. And Stremme isn't the only driver who has taken issue with Jenkins, a first-year team owner who purchased the team from Jack Roush prior to the season. Boris Said , who started the season as the team's primary, asserts that Jenkins owes him money.


Last week, former Latitude 43 Motorsports driver Boris Said revealed that he is unhappy with the way he was treated by Jenkins. “There’s no real polite way to say this, but Bill Jenkins owes me a bunch of money,” he said. Asked if he expects to have any relationship with the team going forward, Said replied, “(Jenkins) hasn’t returned my phone calls, so I guess not. It's a bad deal for me.”

Asked if he is owed money by Latitude 43, Stremme said, “There are obligations to both me and the team that have not been met, and that was a big part of my decision to leave. I don’t want to be involved with something like that. I dealt with (Jenkins) with respect, and was straightforward with him at all times. I didn’t get that in return.”

Jenkins declined to discuss Said and Stremme’s allegations, saying, “I don’t agree with them at all, but I’m not going to pursue that in the press. It’s not the right place. The best thing for me to do at this point is to not preclude David from pursuing any future opportunities. I have all the respect in the world for him. He is a great guy and I wish him all the best.”

Stremme's best finish in the 26 car was 24th (three times: Bristol, Darlington and Pocono). He failed to quailify for five races.

Said has raced for the team five times -- the first four races of the season and Sonoma. He finished 8th at Sonoma, turning in the team's only top 10.

According to the report, Patrick Carpentier is expected to drive the car at this weekend's race at Michigan.
