Preliminary Entry List
Greg Biffle wins in return to Truck Series after 5,313 days: It was, as Greg Biffle screamed over his radio at the checkered flag, an “awesome freaking drive.” Awesome? Improbable was more to the point. Biffle ended a self-imposed three-year retirement from NASCAR by winning Friday night’s 23rd annual SpeedyCash.com 400 at Texas Motor Speedway. Biffle, who last raced in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series on Nov. 19, 2004 at Homestead-Miami Speedway and last won in 2001, scored his second series victory on TMS’ high-banked/1.5-mile quad-oval in a one-off appearance in place of team-owner/driver Kyle Busch.(More)(6-7-2019)
