Special Guest to Help No. 16 Team 'Survive' All-Star Race

Special Guest to Help No. 16 Team 'Survive' All-Star Race

Greg Biffle’s No. 16 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team will have a special guest in the pits this weekend for the annual Sprint All-Star race. Jeremiah Wood, a recent castoff of the hit show Survivor, will join the 3M team Saturday evening at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wood made it all the way to episode nine of season 28 of Survivor before being voted out of Cagayan, Philippines. Wood hails from Dobson, N.C., which also happens to be the hometown of Greg Biffle’s longtime spotter Joel Edmonds.

“You know in a race where there are no points on the line, often times its about surviving to the end,” said Biffle. “With that it’s only fitting that we have a cast member from Survivor in our pits. Jeremiah did a great job ‘surviving’ on the show and hopefully we’ll be able to last to the end and take home the million dollars.”

Edmonds and Wood have known each other for several years, living in the small town of Dobson. The two have similar interests in hunting, fishing and racing.

“I feel like I have been a very blessed and fortunate country boy,” said Jeremiah Wood. “I’ve had a good career in being a fashion model and now landing a hit television show. God has been good to me. But I know how I was raised and I’ll never forget it and I’m going to live like it. I was raised on hunting, fishing and racing! Survivor is like racing, a lot of competitors trying to win and there are some attitudes to deal with. I’m just hoping Greg can bring home the money with the help of Joel Saturday night.”

Living in the small town of Dobson, Woods and Edmonds paths have crossed many times over the years.

“If I never knew Jeremiah and watched Survivor, I’d be able to tell he’s from the same town as me,” said Greg Biffle’s spotter Joel Edmonds. “You’d never know that he’s been on TV and modeled, he’ll always be the same guy and you just don’t see that anymore. Staying small town is hard to do, but Jeremiah has kept his roots and made something of himself. He’s one of the most down to earth nicest people you’ll ever meet.”

A win has eluded Biffle at the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway, but with no points on the line and nothing to lose under the lights his focus is set on a victory. Biffle qualified for this season’s All-Star race, via his historic victory last summer at Michigan International Speedway. This will be Biffle’s 11th All-Star appearance and in his previous 10 Sprint All-Star races he’s earned two top-five and three top-10 finishes.
