By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor After Sunday’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400, the cars of race-winner Martin Truex Jr. and 12th-place finisher Jimmie Johnson failed post-race LIS (laser inspection station). But according to NASCAR, the infraction will not result in the loss of Chase advancement for Truex. The penalty for both drivers should be of the P2 variety, which should result in a minimum of 10 points and a $15,000 fine. With Truex’s Chase advancement not in question, the penalty definitely will hurt Johnson much more. A 10-point deduction wouldRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Contributor After 500 miles around the historic Darlington Raceway last Sunday, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Richmond for the final regular season race that will set the 16 driver field for the Chase with Saturday night’s running of the Federated Auto Parts 400. Often described as the perfectly designed race track by drivers, the 0.75 mile track lends itself to not only short track characteristics of beating and banging, but also the characteristics of a larger track with the side by side racing thatRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer At the start of the weekend, the New Hampshire 301 did not look as if it would be a good race for Greg Biffle and his No. 16 NESN Fuel Ford Fusion team. Biffle was 34th in the opening practice, and qualified his Roush Fenway Racing Ford in the 28th position. In the following practices on Saturday, Biffle’s team improved his car, as he was 15th fastest in the second practice. Biffle was 19th fastest in the final practice. After the race went green onRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Greg Biffle came out of nowhere. Winless since 2013 and without a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole since the fall Charlotte race in 2012, the driver of the No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford scorched Daytona International Speedway on Friday to claim the top starting spot for Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 (at 7:45 p.m. ET on NBC). In the second and final round of knockout qualifying, Biffle toured the 2.5-mile restrictor-plate track in 46.643 seconds (192.955 mph) to wrestleRead More
By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Roush Fenway Racing’s resurgence has been one of the most surprising stories of the 2016 season, but unfortunately while Trevor Bayne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have been succeeding week after week, the team’s veteran leader, Greg Biffle has been left behind recently. Sunday in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte though, Biffle had his best race of the season and the finishing position reflected it. The week started off great for Biffle as he recorded his best starting position of the year, with a sixth placeRead More
By David Morgan, NASCAR Writer After an impressive start to All-Star weekend on Saturday morning with the rain-delayed Sprint Showdown, all eyes were on the new NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race format to see if it could equal the excitement from the preliminary race, but the new format fell well short of expectations as the Showdown overshadowed the main event. The Sprint Showdown started off with a photo finish between Trevor Bayne and Chase Elliott in the first segment of the All-Star preliminaries as Bayne made a daring three-wide pass forRead More
By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service CONCORD, N.C. – With Chase Elliott’s Chevrolet bouncing off the outside wall, and Kyle Larson’s Chevy bouncing off Elliott’s car coming to the finish line, Larson won a wild drag race to claim the last of three available spots in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (9 p.m. ET on FS1). At the end of the final 10-lap dash in the Sprint Showdown, Larson pinched Elliott into the outside wall entering the dogleg at the 1.5-mile track and banged intoRead More

By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Roush Fenway Racing is coming off of arguably its strongest race in a couple of seasons. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne were top-10 competitors all night long in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas, and Greg Biffle was a solid top-15 car as well. However, they all faced difficult outcomes. Stenhouse was collected in a 13-car pileup, Bayne was caught a lap down by a wonky pit strategy and Biffle was crashed by Kasey Kahne. But nonetheless you can feel the momentum building forRead More
By Seth Eggert, NASCAR Writer The last leg of the “NASCAR Goes West” tour at Auto Club Speedway proved to have mixed results for Roush Fenway Racing and it’s three drivers. Trevor Bayne was the star of qualifying for Roush Fenway in the Auto Club 400, posting a seventh place starting spot. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. qualified 18th, with Greg Biffle 22nd. The weekend quickly started going downhill for Biffle in Saturday’s final practice, where he slammed into Kyle Larson’s Chevrolet off of turn four with just 24 minutes left inRead More
