BROOKLYN, MI - The clock is ticking for Greg Biffle. <br />
And it's ticking fast.<br />
Although he ranks 12th in the series in points (645), the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion driver sits 17th in the Chase Grid Outlook, on the outside looking in, with just four races left before the postseason, because he has yet to record a victory.<br />
"We feel like we can win one of these last four races, so that's what we're focusing on is winning one of these last four and getting our way into the Chase that way," Biffle said, heading into this Sunday's race at Michigan. "But certainly we're hanging on by a shoestring to make it in on points if it comes down to that."<br />
A wild ride of off-the-track developments further adds to the pressure. Biffle must carry the weight of proving he can be Roush Fenway Racing's No. 1 driver following the departure of Carl Edwards at the end of the season. <br />
Luckily, Biffle gets a shot to go for victory at Michigan this week, a track where he has won a career-best four times, including two of the last four races. He boasts 10 top-five finishes in 23 Sprint Cup Series starts there in addition to two Camping World Truck Series wins. Additionally, Biffle owns the series-best average running position (8.9) and driver rating (107.8) there.<br />
And, oh by the way, those four Sprint Cup wins
