Greg Biffle fastest in first Darlington practice

Greg Biffle is a two-time winner at Darlington.
After a mostly disappointing season so far, Greg Biffle was the surprise leader in Friday’s first of two rounds of practice for Sunday night’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

Biffle went out early at the historic 1.33-mile South Carolina track and put up a lap of 176.189 miles per hour in his No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford. Temperatures quickly rose, and Biffle’s time held up for the remainder of the 1-hour, 55-minute session.

Behind Biffle came a trio of Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolets, with Kurt Buschsecond ahead of Tony Stewart and defending race winner Kevin Harvick. Carl Edwards completed the top five in the first of the four Joe Gibbs Racing Toyotas.

To celebrate the return of Darlington’s traditional Labor Day weekend date for the first time since 2003, a total of 32 race cars were decked out in throwback paint schemes dating back to the 1970s and '80s.
