Downtime is a tricky thing. Some guys, like Denny Hamlin, go golfing, and some guys, like Greg Biffle, go to a rock quarry. The Biffster doesn't exactly look thrilled, does he?
No, Biffle hasn't been sentenced to hard labor breaking rocks. (No need; Kurt Busch has his crews doing that during the week.) Via the No. 16 3M team's Twitter feed, this is Biffle's visit to the 3m plant in Pittsboro, North Carolina. As the Twitter tells us, this is where rock is mined to make roofing tiles. So if you're building a house in the next couple years, you might have some genuine NASCAR-driver-approved tile over your head.
And while Biffle is a good corporate pitchman, you've got to figure that he's hoping 3M sets up a plant near Destin or Hilton Head soon.
