NASCAR 167 43 Greg Biffle: Top-10 NASCAR accomplishments 11287295 Star power Star+power+ NASCAR

Greg Biffle has been a NASCAR fixture since 1998, working his way from Truck rookie to Cup championship contender.

The 43-year-old has remained loyal to his group throughout his career, only driving full time for team owner Jack Roush during that span. He’s earned a pair of championships and challenged to add the Cup title to his resume.

He’s a true racer, one of the drivers who can still tinker on a car in his own time and that has become a perennial contender for race wins.

Rea White takes a look at Biffle’s top-10 NASCAR accomplishments:

Biffle was on a tear in 2005, a year when he showed consistency and persistence in his chase for the title. He closed his year on a high note, winning for the second consecutive season at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and earned his career-best points finish. In the end, he fell just 35 points shy of Tony Stewart’s title-winning run. He would go on to finish third in the standings in 2008 and fifth in 2012 for a trio of top-five career runs.

When Biffle locked up the title in what is now the Nationwide Series in 2002, he became the first driver in NASCAR history to win both that series and the Truck series titles in his career. During that championship season, Biffle won four races in 34 starts and compiled 25 top-10 finishes, 20 of them top-fives. He had an average finish of 10th despite five DNFs for the year to take the title.

Biffle gave Roush his first title in one of NASCAR’s major touring season with his 2000 run to the Truck championship. Biffle was a force throughout the season, earning five wins in 24 starts and completing 97.6 percent of all possible laps. He earned 18 top-five finishes, or finished in that group in 75 percent of the races he ran. He posted a stunning average finish of 5.8 that season to take his first major NASCAR title.

Greg Biffle and his wife, Nicole, have embraced a variety of causes through the driver’s foundation. Chief among those are animal welfare projects which are partially aided by the annual Pets calendar created by the foundation. Biffle is annually involved in a series of charity endeavors to aid both his foundation and that of the sanctioning body.

Biffle, 43, is the senior member of the Roush Fenway Racing contingency. He began driving for team owner Jack Roush (pictured, right) in 1998, when Biffle debuted full time in the Truck series. He then slowly worked his way through the Nationwide and into the Cup ranks, where he continues to drive for Roush in what is now his 11th full season at NASCAR’s elite level.

Biffle may get lost in the shuffle sometimes when looking at the sport’s top winners, but he’s earned his share of victories in each of the sport’s major touring series. Biffle has a total of 54 career wins over, with 18 of those coming in the Cup series. He also has 20 Nationwide and 16 Truck wins to his credit.

In 2005, Biffle showed just how strong his Cup operation could be. The Roush group was sharp overall that season, but Biffle was dazzling in his runner-up season performance. He earned a Cup career-best six wins and finished in the top 10 21 times, with 15 of those being top fives. He posted an average finish of 11.9.

Biffle continued to keep a hand in NASCAR's other series, sometimes driving for teams other than Roush Fenway in the Nationwide Series ranks. He remained a loyal competitor in the series for years, though, often running at least 13 events a year in that division.

Biffle certainly knows how to end the year on a high note. The driver closed his 2004, 2005 and 2006 seasons in stellar fashion, taking the victory at the season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway to send the team into the rather brief offseason on a high note.

Biffle (seen here in 1999) carries a unique distinction following his usage of NASCAR’s ladder system to come through the ranks. He earned both the 1998 Camping World Truck Series rookie of the year and the 2001 Nationwide Series rookie of the year honor. Think that sounds simple? He’s the only NASCAR driver to have won both of those titles.
