Greg Biffle says he and Roush Fenway Racing are getting closer to a contract extension and could have an announcement soon.
Biffle's contract is up after this season, but he expects to continue driving the No. 16 Ford as he has done full time since 2003. He said Friday there are many "moving parts" in finishing a deal and that the parties will meet with primary sponsor 3M in Minnesota next week for additional discussions.
Biffle has had two top-10 finishes in seven races this season, although one of those was a sixth at Texas Motor Speedway on Monday. Biffle believes that showing gave the team a lift they can use at Darlington Raceway this weekend.
