DAYTONA BEACH, Feb. 13, 2011: Greg Biffle led the way for Roush Fenway in Sunday’s Pole Day at Daytona International Speedway, turning a lap of 48.67 (184.911 mph) to qualify ninth in the session.

The session will determine the team’s starting points in Thursday’s Gatorade Duels.


“It was pretty good,” said Biffle. “I thought it would be a little faster to be honest, but it didn’t seem like it accelerated down the back and I could feel the wind. Still it was pretty fast and the fastest overall for the Roush Fenway group, so a pretty solid top 10 run here today. We’re right among the Childress and Hendrick cars, so I think that’s pretty respectable.”

David Ragan was 16th (184.612 mph), Carl Edwards was 18th (184.475 mph) and Matt Kenseth rounded out the group in 22nd (184.102).

The Sprint Cup Series returns to action on Wednesday morning for the first to two Gatorade Duel practice sessions.
