CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Greg Biffle says he’s close to signing an extension with Roush Fenway Racing, and would be surprised if teammate Carl Edwards does not do the same.

Biffle has said since the start of the season that he’s working on a new deal with team owner Jack Roush. He said Tuesday at an event at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s zMAX Dragway that he’s not had an overwhelming interest to test the free-agent market.

He says a combination of the economy, the current driver lineups and the improvement at Roush Fenway has made him comfortable driving the No. 16 Ford.

Biffle also believes that the organization has shown so much improvement through the first five races of this season, that teammate Edwards would have a hard time finding a job better than the one he has.
