BIFFLE & STEWART
Dogs’ Vest Friends, Too
CHARLOTTE (April 29, 2009) – What do Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart and Susie Jean have in common? They are K9 dogs “vest friends”. Greg and Tony have partnered to help Susie provide bullet-resistant and knife-resistant vests for K9 officers located throughout the United
States. Through grassroots efforts, Susie has already provided 317 vests to police dogs in 34 states and she’s been dubbed “Dog’s Vest Friend”. Now, Greg and Tony are urging their fans as well as supporters of our
officers & their K9s to support this Charity Splits raffle starting April 30, 2009 and concluding May 24, 2009.
Tony Stewart fans may recall that last summer his foundation awarded a sizable grant to Vest ‘N P.D.P. providing 40 bullet-resistant & knife-resistant vests for all 30 dogs of the Indiana State Police K-9 Unit and 10 additional dogs from Georgia, New Mexico, North Carolina and Minnesota. Drawing significant media coverage, Tony presented the vests to the Indiana State Police during the Allstate 400 Brickyard. Tony invited Greg to partner with him in this effort to potentially provide vests for all those in need nationwide. “It’s a great fit for our Foundation since we support animal welfare groups across the country” said Biffle.
The publicity highlighting Susie’s work sparked considerable interest and she found her one-person shop inundated with requests from law enforcement agencies located throughout the U.S. Today, Susie has 175 K9 ‘officers’ in 37 states waiting on vests. Departments rarely have allocations for purchasing these custom-made vests, ranging from $1,200 to $1,500, for each dog. Susie expressed, “My efforts are a small price
to pay for our police dogs that protect their human partner as well as our communities.”
Greg and Tony are asking their fans to “pay a small price” and team together in support of Vest ‘N P.D.P. and our brave law enforcement officers – two-legged and four. To participate, log onto either driver’s foundation Web site or directly on to www.vest4K9.com.
Don’t delay as the winner will be announced June 14!

Biffle to Return Home for Local Short-Track Race During Off-Weekend
Concord, N.C. (July 7, 2009) - During an upcoming off-weekend from his Sprint Cup duties driving the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing, Greg Biffle will return home to the northwest for a 10-lap exhibition race at Sunset Speedway in Banks, Oregon. Sunset Speedway is a local dirt track just over 30 miles from Biffle’s hometown of Vancouver, Washington. The exhibition race will be part of the Saturday night racing events on July 18th and will also feature Biffle’s brother Jeff who is a regular at Sunset Speedway.
Biffle did not grow up dirt racing but made his debut at Sunset Speedway last year when he won the same 10-lap exhibition race.
“I am looking forward to going back to Sunset Speedway,” said Biffle. “It reminds me of the Saturday night races we used to go to when I was growing up. I never raced at Sunset when I started racing but a few of the guys I raced against back then will be racing next
Saturday night. I’m definitely looking forward to racing some of them again.”
Biffle will give a full recap of the race at Sunset Speedway during his weekly radio show that airs Monday nights at 9:00 p.m. on
