BROOKLYN, Mich. — Roush Fenway Racing's three Sprint Cup drivers are testing today at Michigan International Speedway, in preparation for Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and for August's Pure Michigan 400 at MIS.
Both Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards are in a contract year with the racing team owned by Jack Roush. While Edwards declined to comment publicly on the status of a future contract, Biffle expressed his desire to stay with Roush Fenway Racing.
“That’s where I want to stay and drive," Biffle said. "I want to get these cars competitive and win races again. We know it’s going to be hard work and that’s part of it. Nothing in life comes easy. We know it’s going to be hard work and we know the sponsors are looking for results."
Edwards is currently sixth in the Sprint Cup driver points standings with two wins this season, and has all but locked up a spot in the Chase for the Championship. Biffle is 16th and has yet to win this season. Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., Roush Fenway Racing's third full-time Sprint Cup driver, is 28th.
“We’re not running good enough to be high enough in points,” said Biffle, who has two top-five finishes and five top-10 finishes this season. “I don’t think we’re going to get there by the time the Chase comes. We’re going to have to have a win to get in, as well.”
