Carl Edwards, all of the Roush contract attention is on you.
On Sunday, the Charlotte Observer reported that Greg Biffle and sponsor 3M will sign a contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing. The Sporting News reported that while no deal had been reached, both Biffle and 3M were expected to remain with the team.
The futures of Biffle and Edwards have been the NASCAR contract world's two biggest stories, especially with the performance of Roush Fenway Racing. While Edwards has a win at Bristol and Biffle has been consistent, the Roush cars haven't been in the same class of the Hendrick, Stewart-Haas, Penske or Joe Gibbs Racing cars in terms of speed.
There have been few public clues about Edwards' future. Joe Gibbs Racing is viewed as his most likely non-Roush suitor, as the team has the capacity to expand to four teams to accommodate Edwards. On Saturday, Roger Penske, owner of Team Penske, told Catchfence.com his team had no interest in Edwards for a third team.
If Biffle re-signs with Roush, it could be the last major contract of Biffle's career. While still near the top of the Sprint Cup Series heap, he's 44-years-old. It's the only team he's driven for in his Sprint Cup Series career. He has 19 career Sprint Cup Series wins and has won titles in both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwdie Series. With a Sprint cup title, he'd be the first driver to win all three series.
