For the second time in three years, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular Greg Biffle is coming to Elma’s Grays Harbor Raceway, a track he co-owns.

Biffle, a native of Vancouver, Wash., will be at the track tonight for a meet-and-greet session with fans, GHR general manager Nikki Gamell said.

Biffle was last in Elma in 2010. There will be a fan autograph session beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m. prior to the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour and DAA Extreme Late Model races at 6:30 p.m., and again after the races around 8 p.m., Gamell said.

In addition to the autograph session, there will be a raffle prize giveaway of a ride-along with Biffle in a two-seat Dirt Late Model at the track.

“We are so glad to have Greg take the time to visit the Grays Harbor Raceway,” Gamell said. “We know how busy he is this season especially with how well he is running in NASCAR. He definitely has an opportunity to win the Sprint Cup this year.”

Biffle has tallied 17 Sprint Cup victories, including winning the Samsung Mobile 500 in Texas earlier this year.

He’s third in the Sprint Cup standings with 667 points, behind Matt Kenseth and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
