Greg Biffle is two laps away from the NASCAR truck series championship.
"They won't let me say I won the championship yet, because the way it adds up is if I don't show up at the last two races, it's not going to happen," Biffle said.
With a 290-point lead over Mike Wallace in the standings, Biffle needs only to complete single laps at Texas Motor Speedway on Oct. 13, and in the season finale at California Speedway on Oct. 28.
