2013: Biffle finished second in both the Sprint Unlimited and the Duel, setting himself up fifth for the Daytona 500. Biffle was looking at a third-place finish, until the bottom line made a move in the end, resulting in a sixth-place finish.
2012: Biffle started second in the Daytona 500 and during the race led the field eight different times for a combined total of 44 laps. In the end he fell just short of winning, settling for a third-place finish.

* February 2012 – Biffle is part of the Daytona 500 all-Ford starting row with a second-place qualifying effort

Biffle on the Daytona 500:
“Our Ortho Ford is pretty good. I’m excited about the 150’s and getting a good starting position for the 500. It’s a long race and I feel like we have a good opportunity to run up front and be there at the end.”

Puccia on the Daytona 500:
“The Daytona 500 is a very important race, it’s the premier race of the year and important to get the season kicked off on a high note. We’ve got the Duel’s on Thursday to try and secure a good starting position for the 500. We are looking to build momentum and get the season off to good start with our No. 16 Ortho Ford.”
