Greg Biffle lead the points for a big chunk of the regular season in 2012, he even won two races. But he never really seemed like much of a player once the chase started. And even though he finished above guys like Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth in the year end standings, he didn't feel to be as big a threat to win the title.
Which is weird, because obviously Biffle is a wheelman, and he has won titles in the Truck and Nationwide series. Maybe because he has been wildly inconstant in the cup series, missing the chase in 2011, 2007 and 2006, but finishing as high as second in the standings in 2005.
"We're gonna focus on this year, making the chase one," said Biffle. "But also we are going to focus on being better when it starts. I don't know what we could have done (last year). But we are going to focus on being more aware and more prepared."
