Biffle warns Jimmie Johnson: 'You better watch it'
An angry Greg Biffle confronted Jimmie Johnson following the Sprint Cup race at Martinsville, furious over contact between the two drivers with about 130 laps left in the race.
The contact turned Biffle's rear bumper until a liability, and NASCAR ordered the Roush Fenway Racing driver into the pits under caution to fix it. Biffle fell back to 25th and rallied to finish ninth but wasn’t happy with the contact. He approached Johnson soon after the race and gave him a slight shove while Johnson was doing postrace interviews.
“Hey, you tore my rear bumper off, you (expletive),” he told Johnson.
Johnson said: “I was inside of you,” to which Biffle responded: “You (expletive) ran into the back of me.”
Johnson again told Biffle he was beside him, and Biffle pointed his finger at Johnson and said: “You better watch it.”
Biffle began to walk away and Johnson lightly grabbed his arm and said: “If you want to talk about it, we can talk about it.”
Biffle didn’t want to talk that much: “We just did,” he told Johnson. “(Expletive) man, I had to go all the way to the back.”
They did talk for about another 15-20 seconds and both were fairly calm shortly afterward.
When asked if Johnson, who is tied for the points lead with three races remaining, is taking more than he is giving on the track as he races for his sixth title, Biffle did deliver a warning.
“If he’s running for the title, he better not tear my rear bumper cover off because that will be the last race he finishes,” Biffle said. Sporting News
