Greg Biffle retired from full-time NASCAR Cup Series competition after the 2016 season and has only competed in a one NASCAR national-level race since then — a NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway last year that resulted in a win. But the former Roush Fenway Racing driver is returning to the race team, this time in the virtual world, to drive the #16 Ford in Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts 125 eNASCAR Pro Invitational iRacing Series event at virtual Texas Motor Speedway.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注“How exciting is it to get back behind the wheel of the No. 16,” Biffle said. “I watched the iRace last week on TV, and I was really impressed with the overall quality of the broadcast and the racing. It was just a lot of fun, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of the show this weekend. We are running a really cool Castrol scheme on the car. I think it’s going to show up really well. My plan is to log a ton of practice time leading up to the race, so hopefully, we can have a strong showing, and you’ll see a lot of the Castrol green and red on the broadcast.”
Sunday’s race is the second race for the Pro Invitational Series, a series established by NASCAR and iRacing to fill a void left by the postponement of real-life racing because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Biffle is a four-time winner at the real TMS, including two wins in the Cup Series.
Biffle drove for Roush Fenway Racing throughout his NASCAR national-level career in all three of NASCAR’s national series. He drive the #16 Roush entry in the Cup Series from 2003 through 2016, winning 19 races. He also has a combined 37 wins in the NASCAR Xfinity and Truck series and championships in both of those series.
