(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — Fresh off his win at Michigan, Greg Biffle is looking forward to racing this weekend at Sonoma.
“We are coming off a big win for us in Michigan and I’m looking forward to Sonoma,” Biffle said on Tuesday. “I love road racing. As long as I can keep it on the track, keep the transmission in it and the brakes on it, I think we’ll have a top-five finish or even a chance at the win. I’m looking forward to getting to Sonoma and having some fun.”
Biffle sits in eighth in the Sprint Cup points standings and has two top-five and four top-10 finishes at the Sonoma track. He has started at Sonoma 10 times in the Sprint Cup series and has three top five finishes this season.
“After our win at Michigan we are looking to carry that momentum into Sonoma. This weekend is a good change of pace from the short tracks and ovals we’ve been at. Sonoma is a track with an abrasive surface. It’s hard on tires, which makes for different strategies during the race. Tire management and race management will determine the winner,” Biffle’s Crew Chief Matt Puccia said.
Biffle finished in seventh last year at the Sonoma track.
