Biffle scores big in Texas

In his first NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) start since 2004, Greg Biffle drove the No. 51 Toyota Tundra to victory on Friday night. 

In a race marked with cautions and different pit strategies, Biffle was at the front the majority of the race but took the lead for the first time just past the 100 lap mark. When a late race caution fell with less than 15 laps to go, Biffle’s crew chief, Rudy Fugle, went against the strategy of most of the other lead lap cars and left Biffle on the track. He would assume the lead and never looked back, scoring his 17th career NGOTS win and first since 2001.

“It means a lot to me that Kyle gave me this opportunity to come back and drive this truck. Thanks to everyone that stood behind Kyle Busch Motorsports. This Gander Outdoors Truck Series has a lot of competitive trucks, and these guys make the difference. These guys

are a great group of guys that Kyle put assembled. TRD, Toyota ran great today. I am just excited to be here.”

It was the sixth win for the No. 51 team this season, and seventh for Toyota, in just nine NGOTS events.

In a night where he celebrated his high school graduation, Tyler Ankrum suffered a spin halfway though the race, but bounced back to score a career-best third place finish. Harrison Burton also finished in the top five. Brennan Poole and Daytona winner Austin Hill completed the top 10
