"The car handles a little different on each lap with the wind blowing like that," admitted Biffle's Roush Fenway Racing team mate Carl Edwards who came home in eighth place at the finish. "It made it interesting and made you think a lot."
The third RFR driver, Matt Kenseth, was rarely out of the top five all evening and duly finished in fifth place, just ahead of polesitter Martin Truex Jr. The final member of the top ten club was Richard Childress Racing's Kevin Harvick in ninth place, who overcome a number of issues during the race.
"We lost a lot of ground on the second stop," he explained. "We fought the handling back in traffic after that and the car got too loose. There at the end it started to get really loose in 3. All in all, this is better than I've been here lately, so we'll take that and work on what we need to improve for next time."
Joe Gibbs Racing duo Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin just missed out on the top ten but were the final cars left on the lead lap after that massive green flag run. Tony Stewart - who won the last race held at Texas in 2011 - finished a disappointing 24th place after having to take to his backup car following a practice accident on Friday.
Even more disappointed was Penske Racing's Brad Keselowski, who finished in 36th position 22 laps off the lead after an extended visit to the garage for more problems relating to the blue deuce's fuel pickup system, having run in the top ten for most of the first half of the race.
Biffle's win on Saturday night gave car owner Jack Roush a clean sweep of the NASCAR events at Texas, following Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s Nationwide race win the previous night for Roush Fenway Racing, which meant that for a second night running his trademark fedora was replaced by the race winner's five gallon cowboy hat.
"If the pit stops are good, if the crew chief's decisions were good, if the engine ran good, if the driver did a great job recovering from some adversity, I consider that a win," he said, celebrating Biffle's comeback to victory lane after RFR undertook a series of organisational changes after a disappointing 2011.
With an early victory for Biffle in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and a comfortable 19pt lead in the championship standings, all those changes are most definitely paying off for Biffle, Roush and the rest of the team so far this year. Will it power a run through into the Chase and a serious challenge for the Sprint Cup?
