Biffle takes advantage of Johnson’s car stalling to win Pure Michigan 400 race

 

Greg Biffle is the lastest winner on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit.

The driver of the Number-16 3M Ford held of Brad Keselowski in a green-white-checkered flag finish to win Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

The win was Biffle’s second of the 2012 season and the first for Roush Fenway Racing in four years at the hometown track of team owner Jack Roush.

Jimmie Johnson looked as if he was heading for his first win at Michigan after passing Keselowski with 10 laps remaining. But the motor in Johnson’s Lowe’s #48 Chevrolet stopped running on the backstretch with five laps to go in the race.

With the victory, Biffle took the points lead away from Johnson.

NASCAR driver Carl Edwards was trying to decide between staying at Roush Fenway Racing or to accept an offer from Joe Gibbs Racing.

On Thursday, Edwards announced that he was staying with owner Jack Roush’s team. He is the current points leader in the Sprint Cup Series, competing for his first Cup championship.

This week with a new deal in hand, Edwards heads to Pocono Raceway in Lake Pond, Pennsylvania with an 11-point lead over five-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson.

Roush Fenway Racing has four drivers under contract in Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and David Ragan.

The likeable Edwards has been with Roush since 2002, when he got his first break in NASCAR. He started in the Truck Series, then was elevated to the Cup series by 2004 as a late-season replacement for Jeff Burton.

In 2005, Edwards became a serious NASCAR star driver by winning a four times that season.

The best season for Edwards was 2008, when he was victorious a series-high nine times and finished second to Johnson in the championship race. He struggled in 2009.

Edwards wins Trucks race at Texas Motor Speedway

Carl Edwards was trying to hold off the always-hard charging Kyle Busch and didn’t know that the car of Tim Schendel would help him win at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas.

Edwards and Busch were 1-2 on the track on lap 88 when Tim Schendel’s car blew the right front tire and split the two front running cars. Schendel scraped the back of Edwards’ car and was in front of Busch, who had no escape route but hit Schendel with full force.

From there, Edwards went on to lead 169 of the 200 laps and win his second consecutive Nationwide race at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked track. It was his 30th Nationwide win, the 15th NASCAR victory for car owner Jack Roush at Texas, and the first NASCAR win for a Ford Mustang.

The polesitter was steady throughout the race, never dropping below third place and won by 0.482 seconds over Brad Keselowski.

Busch had won five consecutive Nationwide races at Texas before finishing second behind Edwards in the fall race of 2010. This race marked the first time in his 13 Nationwide starts at Texas the he did not finish, and had been out of the top seven only once before.

Paul Menard finished third, Joey Logano and Elliott Sadler rounded out the top five.

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.
