Greg Biffle is due for a good run quite possibly a win, in the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Saturday night.

The driver of the No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford is coming off of a sixth-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this week and has a decent record at the quirky 1.366 egg shape Darlington oval with a pair of wins and five top-10 finishes.

He has also led 713 laps in his 13 previous appearance at Darlington, more than anyone but Jeff Gordon, currently driving in the Sprint Cup series.

Biffle has had his share of bad luck this season, with several good chances at victories snatched away by tire failures or mechanical issues, nine of which were the result of bad driving, which makes Darlington a good place for him to get this season turned around.
