Biffle Won’t Be Cutting Johnson Any Slack

Greg Biffle and Jimmie Johnson won’t be exchanging Christmas gifts anytime soon after their run in at Martinsville in Sunday’s Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500. Biffle was positioned in the top-10 when contact from Johnson sent him spinning.

While there was minimal damage to Biffle’s car, the real damage was having to go to the back of the line after pitting. He did have a strong enough car to work his way back to a ninth place finish, but it could have been a lot better had that not happened.

After the race Biffle got to Johnson to explain his frustration. “Hey, you tore my rear bumper off, you (expletive),” said Biffle. Johnson contended he was next to Biffle, but Biffle warned him he’d “better watch it.”  In the end it was a case of agreeing to disagree over the incident.

With three races to go and Johnson neck and neck for the title, it’ll be interesting to see if Biffle cuts him any slack in the coming weeks.  Drivers tend to have very long memories and if it’s not this season, it could go into next.

  1. What is Jimmie Johnson doing about the November birth of his child? At the beginning of the season Jimmie Johnson in an interview stated he was going to miss a race for the birth. Now what is he saying????

    1. I haven’t seen anything official, but since he’s in the thick of the championship battle, I can’t see him missing a race. Practice and qualifying maybe.
