Former Cup Series driver and 19-time series winner Gerg Biffle would be open to the prospect of driving in the NASCAR Cup Series again.
Biffle made his second NASCAR start since 2016 in NASCAR’s Truck Series race at Darlington Raceway. He retired from full-time competition in 2016.
When asked about making a comeback to the sport’s highest level of competition, Gerg Biffle said:
“I think the right (Cup Series car), yes. To define that is very difficult for me. You know, if I was asked to drive the 22 car, certainly I think a lot of us or any of us would make a very quick decision…there’s certainly a handful of them you could pick that are very competitive. I don’t think there’s a driver that feels he can still win races that wouldn’t take that opportunity.
“Yes, in the right situation I would come back and race potentially a full season.”
As for the ride that Biffle wants, the 22 car, it is driver by Team Penske’s Joey Logano who is in contract with the team until the 2023 season.
There are a couple of rides that are open for the 2021 season but the veteran admits that he won’t be the first in line for any such opportunity.
“There are so many great, young, talented drivers that will get that opportunity well before somebody like myself would,” Biffle said. “As an example, look at the Xfinity and Truck Series. Lot of great drivers there right now.
“I think those guys certainly stand in front of me for an opportunity.”
