No driver has won both of those series along with a Sprint Cup title.
“I feel the urgency because I’m ready to win it,” Biffle said.
Biffle doesn’t believe the expectations placed on him were unrealistic when he arrived in NASCAR’s marquee series. He does acknowledge the competition was tougher than he expected.
“I feel better than I ever have in these past five seasons, the way our team is and how competitive we are,” he said.
The near-miss left Biffle shaking a bit afterward.
“We were really close to having to pull out the backup,” he said. “It just swept the bottom perfectly, but then it took off like it wasn’t going to stop. … It didn’t end up being as bad as I thought, but when it first took off, I thought we were in trouble.”
All the Roush-Fenway drivers will start in the middle of the pack Sunday.
“It felt pretty good, but it wasn’t that fast,” Edwards said. “Our race trim package is real fast, though. I think all the Fords are going to be tough to beat here. I think it’ll be just like Texas with all the long runs and the cars sliding around.”
Just like Texas? That ought to suit Biffle.
“When we got the points lead, I was like, `OK, now we have to keep it and we have to perform at this level everywhere we go,’” he said. “We’ve been competitive. Now we have to keep it up.”
