Greg Biffle hits wall hard after contact with Kasey Kahne in Texas

Greg Biffle’s night came to an ugly end when contact from Kasey Kahne put him into the wall with less than 50 laps to go in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Biffle was running 17th, his No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford the first car two laps down, when he got tagged by Kahne’s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.

“I got hit by the 5," said Biffle. "I’m not sure what happened. He just got in the back of me and turned me around and got me up in the fence. It’s unfortunate.

"We had a decent run going and a pretty good night. We were fighting for the lucky dog to get on the lead lap. We were faster than quite a few of those guys on the lead lap at the back of the field, so it’s unfortunate we didn’t get a chance to race with them.”

Earlier this year, Kahne had contact with Danica Patrick at Auto Club Speedway, sending her hard into the wall.

“I just caught Greg to pass him and he kind of entered out, so I thought I was going to go under him,” said Kahne. “Then he started coming down because he wanted the bottom, obviously, and I was like kind of there and hit the brakes and just hit him. 

"I felt really bad because we didn’t really need to do that. I had a hole on entry and then it kind of closed and I should have lifted sooner instead of being that close to him."
