Roush Fenway Shines at Richmond; Edwards Wins, Biffle Locks Up Chase Spot

Roush Fenway turned in its most impressive performance of the 2013 season in the Sprint Cup ‘regular season’ finale Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway. Carl Edwards led 46 laps en route to his second win of the season; taking the Sprint Cup points lead in his stride.

Greg Biffle secured his sixth career ‘Chase’ entry with a solid run and 12th-place finish, and RFR rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr. capped off the night with the team’s first top-10 finish of the season.

The win is Roush Fenway's fifth in the Sprint Cup Series at Richmond and its 15th overall NASCAR win at the track. Edwards is the fifth RFR driver to win in the Cup series at RIR and adds the accomplishment to his three NNS wins at the track.

For RFR it marks the 10th time in 10 seasons of the Chase the team has placed multiple entries inside the Sprint Cup ‘playoff’ field. It marks the seventh time that Edwards has made the Chase field in his career. RFR placed a record five of 10 entries inside the 2005 Chase, including both Edwards and Biffle.

RFR has finished runner up in the Chase on two occasions, including two seasons ago when Edwards finished tied for the series’ championship.

It also marks the third straight season that RFR has led the Sprint Cup point standings at the culmination of the 26-event race for the Chase.

The Chase kicks off next week at Chicagoland Speedway. Once the field is reset for the Chase, Edwards will be seeded fifth (-9), while Biffle will start seventh (-12 ).
