Roush-Fenway Racing announced Friday that NASCAR veteran Greg Biffle will be piloting his iconic no. 16 Ford in Sunday’s eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational Series race at Texas.
Biffle, a two-time Texas winner in the Cup Series, will be running the no. 16 Castrol Ford Mustang. It will be his first start in the no. 16 car since the 2016 Ford EcoBoost 400 where he finished 17th, one lap down in his final Cup race to date.
“How exciting is it to get back behind the wheel of the No. 16,” said Biffle. “I watched the iRace last week on TV and I was really impressed with the overall quality of the broadcast and the racing. It was just a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to being a part of the show this weekend.”
Biffle has had recent success at Texas Motor Speedway in real life, however. In June 2019, he won the Texas Truck Series race in a no. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota after leading the final 13 laps en route to what was his second Truck victory at Texas.
Biffle is one of 60 drivers entered for Sunday’s eNASCAR O’Reilly Auto Parts 125.
Also among the 60 drivers entered are Biffle’s teammates, no. 6 Ross Chastain and no. 17 Chris Buescher, who raced last week at Homestead. All three drivers will be among the 35 cars to start on
Coverage of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 125 starts 1pm EST on FOX, FS1, the FOX Sports GO app and FOX Sports Racing for Canadian viewers.
Troy Aikman will be serving as the grand marshal and Bob Weir, of the Grateful Dead, will perform the national anthem.
