Biffle Narrowly Misses Contender Round of 2014 Chase with 21st-Place Finish at Dover

Biffle fell just shy of making the next round of the 2014 Chase for the Championship with his 21st-place finish at Dover International Raceway.  The No. 16 3M Post-it Brand Ford reacted to the slightest of adjustments throughout the 400-lap race and despite many chassis adjustments the handling was never where Biffle needed it.   

Greg Biffle started the third race of the Chase from the 27th position and knew he had to make the top 12 in points to move to the next round in the Chase for the Championship.  Things looked promising in the opening run as Biffle steadily advanced through the field.

As the race progressed the handling on Biffle’s No. 16 3M Post-it Brand Ford continued to switch from tight to loose.  The 3M pit crew made slight chassis and air pressure adjustments, but the handling just continued to go from one extreme to the other.

In the closing laps Biffle searched for more front turn, but had his hands full with handling, hanging onto his Ford to cross the finish line 21st.  The finish drops Biffle to 15th in the point standings, just eight points from moving on to the next round of the Chase for the Championship.
