Greg Biffle closing in on new contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing, with 3M remaining as primary sponsor


It’s looking more and more like one of the biggest potential free agents at the end of this season won’t wind up being a free agent at all.

During his media availability Friday morning at Darlington Raceway, Greg Biffle, driver of the Roush Fenway Racing No. 16 Ford Fusion, indicated he’s closing in on a new contract extension to remain at RFR, with primary sponsorship from 3M also expected to be extended, as well.

“I think we are getting closer,” Biffle said. “There are a lot of moving parts to a contract and a lot of new people at 3M, but I know the folks are going up there next week to visit some more.

“I have a feeling it is getting closer. I know there has been a lot of activity. The program works really well for (3M) and we have the America Red Cross on the car this weekend, so it is a good program for 3M and I think they are happy.

“It looks like we are closing in on an announcement. Hopefully here soon, we will have something.”
