The last time former fulltime Cup driver Greg Biffle raced in NASCAR, he won. That was a truck race in June of 2019 when Biffle drove to victory at Texas Motor Speedway.

He hopes for a repeat of that in the upcoming NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Darlington Speedway.

That victory at Texas came in a Kyle Busch Motorsports truck. For the Darlington race the 2000 Truck Series champion will be behind the wheel of the No. 24 Chevrolet for GMS Racing. It was his first race since leaving the Cup series after the 2016 Cup season.

“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel of a Gander Truck,” said Biffle. “GMS Racing produces competitive trucks week in and week out. So needless to say when I got the chance to drive one of their Chevrolet’s, at one of my favorite tracks, I couldn’t turn it down. I’m thankful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get to Darlington with this GMS Racing team.”

Biffle has two Championships and 56 wins across all three National Series. The 50-year-old has six years of experience in the Gander Trucks and in those six years he collected one Championship, 17 wins, 43 top-five’s, 55 top-10’s and 12 pole awards.

The South Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Darlington Speedway on September 8th at 2 p.m. EST. The 147-lap event will be broadcasted live on FS1 and Motor Racing Network. The team said Biffle’s sponsorship and paint scheme will be announced at a later date.
