Former NASCAR driver Greg Biffle may not have been running at Richmond or Phoenix in 2017, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still busy racing.
Biffle did a tongue-in-cheek pre-race press conference and posted it on YouTube to announce his return to racing. It was all in fun, of course. Biffle hasn’t been in competitive racing since his departure from Roush-Fenway Racing in 2016. No, the racing he’s talking about is the 11th annual Triple B 100, a race Biffle holds for family and friends at a homemade track on his property in North Carolina.
Recorded at his home, Biffle and company take canned answers to a whole new level. Whether it’s talking about a supposed sponsorship with Hooters and Viagra to designer paint schemes to even politics, nothing was off limits. Biffle even admits that despite it being at a track he built, racing cars he also built, he doesn’t have an advantage.
“Out of the ten years, I’ve only won the race four times,” Biffle said. “And there’s only 10 or 12 cars in each race. SO that’s not bad but it’s not good either.”
Biffle made sure folks who couldn’t make it out to the race personally were kept up to date on the happenings via his Triple B Twitter account.
And if you were wondering what kind of track Biffle would build on his property, rest assured this isn’t any more formal than what you might find at your county fairground.
Biffle started the race simply as a get-together with friends and family, running junker cars that no one cared got messed up. And judging by the pictures, it got quite messy.
