Who Will Greg Biffle Drive For In The NASCAR Cup Series In 2017?
The 46 year old Greg Biffle obviously will not be with Roush Racing next season. It is unknown who will replace him and it is also unknown where Biffle will go. Will he be racing next year or will he be playing golf and fishing next year?
Front Row Motorsports (FRM) - It seems most likely that current FRM driver Chris Buescher, will leave and replace Biffle in the #16 Ford. So maybe Biffle will go to the underdog team, which is very possible. There has only been two winners in FRM history. David Ragan (#34) won at Talladega in 2013 and Chris Buescher (#34) won at Pocono last season (2016). Bob Osborne (#34 Crew Chief) used to be with Roush, who was crew chief for Carl Edwards (#99). Osborne and Biffle have the experience and both of them could make a dynamic duo, trying to get Biffle a win since 2013.
Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) - With the departure of Brian Scott (#44), RPM has a spot open for any driver. Biffle could be a great pick for RPM bringing more experience to the team, helping Aric Almirola (#43). Richard Petty will for sure at least go after Biffle, knowing that RPM needs help. I think Biffle in #44 Ford would be best for him at this point in his career.
Biffle may simply just retire too. Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart has retired from NASCAR action at the ages of 45 and Biffle is 46! Will he return to racing next season? I think so because Biffle wants to keep going but if he can't find a ride then he will probably retire from NASCAR. If he does continue, where will he go? We will simply just have to find out.
