Well, I do enjoy Monster Energy Drinks but worry about drinking too many. I might have one once or twice a month. I remember a few years back, a buddy of mine WON A CASE of these things and he didn't like 'em so he gave 'em to me... my son liked a bit too much for me to buy them more than occasionally.

I honestly do not know anything about them. I had to go to Wikipedia to read about Monster Energy Drinks.

Essentially a high caffeine drink?

Thanks

So Greg Biffle reported that he is pondering several good offers to drive next season. http://beyondtheflag.com/2016/12/12/...-says-options/

Any idea what they are?

It's getting kind of late to be hooking up with a new (and especially competitive) new team.

Too late for Biffle he should have left Roush a few years ago.
He should look at IMSA road racing if he want to extend his career. Not as glamorous as NASCAR but still a paycheck and competitive racing.

There are a lot of back markers he could replace and do a bit better than them but a good ride isn't happening. I can't think of any that are out there and available, especially considering his age and lack of recent success.

That's what I was thinking. The competitive rides are spoken for going into next season.

I disagree with that because nobody gets a Cup ride unless they are winning drivers in some other series.

Jrs replacement driver ,Alex Bowman was a back marker before Jr gave him a shot.

While certainly some drivers are much better than others the same holds true for the cars. No amount of driving talent can make a winner out of a back marker car.

BK Racing and Premier Motorsports are about the only teams with slots open at all.

Unless he's going to drop back to Xfinity/Trucks.. Some good rides open there.

I was thinking Xfinity...
Elliott Sadler has done well there...

Certainly a good car and team is part but there are a lot of lackluster drivers in the back of the pack. Not all are good up-and-comers like Bowman. All things equal I think Biffle would do better.

I don't see him dropping down to a lower series but you never know.
