He captured his first career series win at Memphis Motorsports Park, and went on to set a series record for nine wins in a single season. Biffle finished the year second in the overall point standings, just eight points shy of a championship. The 1999 success set the stage for what would be an incredible run in the truck series for Biffle and gang in 2000. In 24 events the team won five races, posted 18 top-five and top-10 finishes on their way to capturing Roush Racing's first NASCAR championship.
The truck series proved to be a good starting point for Biffle, but after three successful seasons it was time to graduate to the next level; the NASCAR Busch Series.
Biffle tore through his inaugural year in the Busch Series like a seasoned veteran. In 33 events, he and the Grainger team recorded five wins, two poles, 16 top-five finishes and 21 top-10 finishes. Biffle finished the 2001 Busch Series season fourth in the overall point standings, while receiving Raybestos Rookie-of-the-Year honors. Collectively, he and the team set eight rookie records including most wins, most top-five finishes, most top-10 finishes, most starts, most points overall (4509), most laps led (948) most races led (19) and most money won.
The 2002 Busch Series season proved to be yet another memorable year for Biffle and Roush Racing, as he and the Grainger team won the series title. It was a hard fought battle between Biffle and Jason Keller, but in the end the No. 60 Grainger Ford Taurus reigned supreme. Biffle produced four wins, five poles, 20 top-five finishes and 25 top-10 finishes on his way to winning his second NASCAR Championship. He also became the first driver to win over two million dollars in a single Busch Series season.
Biffle's inaugural season at NASCAR's elite level produced mixed results, highlighted by his first career Winston Cup win in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway on July, 5, 2003. Overall he and the No. 16 Team recorded one win, three top-five and six top-10 finishes en route to a 20th-place position in the final point standings.
The 2004 Nextel Cup Series season got of to a promising start when Biffle took the pole for the Daytona 500. The first half of the season was a little rocky for Biffle and the National Guard team. However, they refused to give up and their persistence paid off with a top-five finish in Pocono. The following week they turned in a sixth place finish in Indianapolis and two weeks later, Biffle drove the National Guard Ford to a dominating win at Michigan International Speedway. Following the Michigan victory, Biffle picked up another top-five and two more top-10's on his way to a dramatic season-ending win at Homestead. Biffle finished 17th in the 2004 Nextel Cup driver's point standings. Biffle also completed a full Busch Series Schedule in 2004 driving the No. 60 Charter Communications Ford. He finished the season third in the points with five wins, two poles, 15 top-fives and 21 top-10's.
