A decorated relationship almost twenty years in the making came to a close at the end of November, when Greg Biffle and Roush Fenway Racing announced their plan to part ways. The pair raced Fords together in NASCAR's three national touring series, and it appears that the third time was a charm. Although Biffle's plans for the future are yet to be determined, the 19-time NASCAR Premier Series winner is certain that they won't include racing with RFR in NASCAR. Watch Biffle in action when he won the NASCAR Premier Series season finale for the third year in a row:
With his NASCAR retirement on the horizon, Biffle's achievements behind the wheel of a Ford are worth reminiscing:
- Back in 2000, Biffle won Ford's first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship.
- Two years later, he took top prize at Ford's first NASCAR XFINITY Series championship.
- On June 16, 2013, Biffle scored the 1,000th Ford victory in NASCAR, which was held at the Michigan International Speedway.
- In a tie with Davey Allison with 19 wins, he ranked 11th on Ford's all-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win list.
- Biffle is ranked fourth on NASCAR's list of drivers with the most Ford victories in the top three series combined. His total is 53 (19NSCS, 18 NXS, and 16 NCWTS).
- For three years in a row (2004-2006), he won the season-closing Ford 400 at Ford Championship Weekend.
In acknowledgment of his career, Raj Nair, the executive VP of product development and the chief technical officer for Ford, said, "One of my fondest memories in NASCAR is being able to welcome Greg to Victory Lane at Michigan when he won our 1,000th NASCAR race. We had so many Ford employees at the track that day and it’s a moment that I’ll always cherish. We wish Greg nothing but the best and thank him for all he’s done in representing Ford on and off the track.”
