Greg Biffle joins GMS Racing for Darlington Truck race

Greg Biffle is back once again.

GMS Racing announced Thursday that the 2000 Truck Series champion will drive for the team in the Sept. 6 race at Darlington Raceway.

The former Cup Series driver will make his first NASCAR start since he competed in and won last year’s Truck Series race at Texas, then driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Biffle, 50, will drive GMS Racing’s No. 24 Chevrolet.

“I’m excited to get back behind the wheel of a Gander Truck,” Biffle said in a press release. “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 three career wins at Darlington, one in the Xfinity Series and two Southern 500 victories.

Despite 82 starts in the Truck Series, this will be Biffle’s first at Darlington. The Truck Series has only competed at the track “Too Tough To Tame” six times, from 2001-04 and 2010-11.
