NASCAR Nextel Cup Series driver Greg Biffle was in Las Vegas today and visited Las Vegas Motor Speedway as part of promotion for Kraft Foods and Planters Peanuts.  Two lucky winners were flown to Las Vegas to receive ride-alongs with Greg at the Richard Petty Driving Experience at LVMS.

The promotion afforded Biffle - a native of Vancouver, Wash., who drives Fords for team owner Jack Roush - an opportunity to see the 1.5-mile superspeedway in its new configuration, with banking in the turns increased to 20 degrees.

"We're out here doing some promotions with Kraft - one of my sponsors on my car - and I'm having a lot of fun," said Biffle.  "Giving people rides is fun and it gives them a feel for what we do.

"This is my first time on the new configuration. It looks like it's going to be fun to race on. Obviously, the Richard Petty (Driving Experience) cars are a (little) slower than what we go here, so it's a little hard to get a feel for how it's actually going to be, but it's a lot different than what it used to be. 

"I think running up off the bottom of the race track is going to be the fast way around.  These guys (Petty instructors) are running around the middle groove and it looks like it's going to produce some pretty good side-by-side racing.  I'm looking forward to coming out here next month to test for Goodyear in my race car."
