Greg Biffle said that "my 100 percent intent" is to sign a contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing and isn't worried about a timetable because he already knows his destination.
"There are a lot of great teams and great opportunities out there," he said. "I am making my decision kind of how (Dale) Earnhardt Jr. did, and it's about winning races and championships and contending for the title and having good equipment."
Team owner Jack Roush said he would not presume the deal with Biffle to be done.
"If he has the greatest interest of being here because of what we've got to work with, then I'll make the same effort for him that I did with Carl (Edwards) to round up the absolute best offer we can make," he said.
