Despite his harsh comments about his race team at Darlington Raceway, Greg Biffle said he's still committed to signing a contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing.
"Nothing has changed," Biffle said Friday at Lowe's Motor Speedway. "I don't understand. I don't quit. I'm not going to quit on my guys. I'm not going to give up."
Biffle is in the final year of his contract with Roush, and has maintained since last season that he intends to sign an extension with the team. But talks have been slow, and his intent came into question Saturday night when he blasted his team because his pole-winning car broke down after leading 95 laps at Darlington.
"All I want is equipment to drive that stays together," he ranted after dropping out of the race and finishing 43rd. "I give it 110 percent as a driver all the time, and you just want your equipment to last and be able to win these races."
Never miss a local story.
Biffle blamed his critical remarks on frustration, and said any driver would have been angry after his car had a pair of loose wheels, a vibration and finally the broken timing belt that ended his evening early.
"I want you guys to go interview 42 other guys and tell me one guy that wouldn't have got out of that car and been mad - just been kicking rocks and going 'Dang it, I'm leading the race with a 5-second lead and now I'm out,' " he said. "I had a great car. That's the positive thing about it, a fast race car, and that's what I always complain about - wanting to have a fast race car.
"I did have a fast race car. There's no doubt in my mind and that's exciting for him."
