CONCORD, N.C. – Greg Biffle will return to Roush Fenway Racing this weekend to pilot the No. 16 Castrol Ford Mustang in Sunday’s eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series event set at virtual Texas Motor Speedway.

Biffle piloted Jack Roush Fords for 19 seasons, winning a pair of championships in the Truck and Xfinity Series and coming just short of becoming the only driver in history to win the championship in all three of NASCAR’s major touring series.

“How exciting is it to get back behind the wheel of the No. 16?” Biffle asked. “I watched the iRace last week on TV and I was really impressed with the overall quality of the broadcast and the racing. It was just a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to being a part of the show this weekend.

“We are running a really cool Castrol scheme on the car,” added Biffle. “I think it’s going to show up really well. My plan is to log a ton of practice time leading up to the race, so hopefully we can have a strong showing and you’ll see a lot of the Castrol green and red on the broadcast.”

Biffle drove to victory lane 56 times during his NASCAR career (19 Cup, 20 NXS, 17 Trucks) and has led almost 12,000 laps. He brought home Jack Roush’s first championship via the Truck Series in 2000, and captured Roush Fenway’s second championship two years later in the Xfinity Series. He went on to become a perennial championship contender in the Cup Series, finishing second in 2005.

While this will be his iRacing event debut, Biffle is certainly no stranger to Texas Motor Speedway, where he won twice in the Cup Series, leading 733 laps and scoring eight top 10s. Overall Biffle started 42 races at TMS, winning four times and leading 10,893 laps in NASCAR action.
