Greg Biffle is a model of consistency, with two top-three finishes in the points standings over the past five years. But this year, Biffle will need man’s best friend to console him, because there is no way he will win the 2009 Chase. Here’s why:
Superspeedways kick him in the bum
In 31 career starts at superspeedways, Biffle only has four top-10 finishes. Talladega has been especially frustrating, with Biffle’s average finish just 23rd.
April 26th was a long time ago
The Kansas City Royals weren’t in last place. The NFL draft was in its second day. And Greg Biffle had three straight top-10s. Since then, the Royals have taken their rightful place in the cellar. We’re in Week 3 of the NFL season. And Biffle hasn’t had three straight top-10s. Mr. Consistency’s inconsistency won’t cut it unless he’s winning races. Oh, by the way:
Dude hasn’t won a race this year
Biffle won the first two races of last year’s Chase. In spite of that success, he didn’t lead the points after those wins. With a ninth place finish Sunday, Biffle needs to win ASAP. It’s un-American to win a title without winning a race. Unless I’m missing something, the rest of this year’s races are in the USA.
Teams would be lucky to have Greg Biffle as an employee. But nobody is winning the 2009 Chase, especially not Greg Biffle.
