With car owner Jack Roush recovering in the Mayo Clinic from injuries sustained in a recent plane crash in Wisconsin, Greg Biffle  raced to victory in the rain delayed Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.

The win snapped a 64-race winless streak for Biffle.

Jack Roush is always at the race track with his trademark hat and is involved in every decision for all of his cars. Biffle said it was strange not having him their in victory lane.

It’s even stranger to vision Greg Biffle going so long without a win. Sunday’s win was his first since winning the first two races in the 2008 Chase for the cup championship.

Roush did call Greg Biffle and the crew members to give his congratulations for the first victory for Ford and Roush Fenway Racing.

The start of the race was delayed by rain. Then there were two lenghty red flag cautions that totaled nearly 50 minutes.

Biffle’s crew kept the same car after driving the number 16 Ford to a season-high third-place finish Sunday at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis. That finish has put Biffle in 11th place in the points race and he is in a strong position to with five races left to be a part of the 12-driver field for the Cup chase.

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM RACING COVERAGE

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA — Jamie McMurray always seems to come up huge in the Big races.

He won NASCAR’S opening race of 2010, the Daytona 500 and on Sunday, he was a surprise winner of the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard.

McMurray joined Jimmie Johnson (2006) and Dale Jarrett (1996) as the only drivers to win both the Daytona 500 and The Brickyard 400 in the same season by taking full advantage of Juan Pablo Montoya’s mistake.

Jamie McMurray (NASCAR)

Montoya had victory within his grasp at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. His miscalculated strategy cost him the lead and the race.

Montoya led for 86 of the 160 laps which make up the 400 miles around the 2.5-mile oval. But he gave up the lead when debris on the track brought out a caution with 23 laps remaining which sent the field to pit road. Crew chief Brian Pattric called for a fresh set of four tires, but the first six drivers off pit road only wanted two tires.

That strategy put McMurray out in the lead on the restart with 18 laps to go, while Montoya fell back to seventh place. He was trying to force his way through traffic to get back up front, and lost control and crashed hard into the wall with 15 laps to go.

The win gave team owner Chip Ganassi a rare feat: He is the only car owner to win the Daytona 500, The Brickyard 400 and the Indianapolis 500 in the same season.

Kevin Harvick finished second, Greg Biffle was third in a Ford, Clint Bowyer ended up fourth and Tony Stewart fifth.
