Biffle signs contract extension

By Pete Pistone

As expected Greg Biffle officially signed to stay with Roush Fenway Racing another three years in a contract extension that will keep the former truck series and Nationwide Series champion behind-the-wheel of the team's No. 16 3M Ford:

From Team News Release

Roush Fenway Racing announced that both 3M and Greg Biffle have renewed their contracts for three more years. The new contracts will take 3M, Biffle and Roush Fenway Racing through the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.

3M has been a Roush Fenway partner since 2005 and Biffle began his NASCAR career with the team in 1998. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

"I am thrilled with the prospect of continuing the relationship we have with 3M and what that, paired with the talent of Greg Biffle, means for the success of the #16 team at Roush Fenway Racing," said team owner Jack Roush . "Our endeavors with 3M have been successful both on and off the track and will ideally culminate with a championship season for Greg and 3M in the near future."

On February 27th, 2005 3M made its debut on Roush Fenway Racing's No. 16 Ford with Post-it brand on the hood. That day Biffle led 46 laps on his way to victory lane at Auto Club Speedway.

Biffle contract extension near

By Pete Pistone

Greg Biffle is expected to officially announce a contract extension to stay with Roush Fenway Racing during this weekend's activities at Talladega Superspeedway.

Several sources have reported Biffle has inked a new deal to remain with team owner Jack Roush. 

Biffle hinted last month that he was on track to continue his Cup career with RFR, where he has competed since 2003. Prior to moving up to NASCAR's top level, Biffle won championships in both the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series with Roush.

Terms of the deal are not known but speculation has the extension keeping Biffle in the stable through the 2014 season.

Once Biffle is inked, Roush has the task of negotiating a new contract for Carl Edwards. His deal also expires at the end of 2011 and like Biffle, Edwards has publicly stated he'd like to remain in the Roush camp although rumors of Team Ted Bull, which has an open seat when Kasey Kahne leaves for Hendrick Motorsports in 2012, may make an offer.

Shake-up on Biffle's pit crew

By Pete Pistone

The problems with NASCAR's new fueling system that plagued Greg Biffle at Las Vegas two weeks ago have resulted in a change of pit road persoonel for the Roush Fenway Racing team this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Ryan Dextraze will move from the catch-can position to replace Billy Manchester as the fueling specialist for Sunday's Jeff Byrd 500.

Machester had issues during the Las Vegas race on a pair of fueling stops which cost Biffle a shot at contending for the Kobalt Tools 400 victory.

Strong words were exchanged between Biffle and crew chief Greg Erwin during the race in the wake of the miscues and team owner Jack Roush announced the personnel change on Tuesday as the team prepares to attempt a rebound from the disappointment in Sunday's fourth race of the season.

Biffle has started the 2011 season slowly and finds himself in 31st place in the Sprint Cup Series point standings after the first three races.
