Samsung/Radio Shack 500 - Texas Motor Speedway

Texas-Sized Win for Biffle
If everything is bigger in Texas then that was true today, as Greg Biffle scored a dominating Texas-sized win in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event. Biffle visited victory lane for the Samsung/RadioShack 500 at Texas Motor Speedway to capture his fifth career win in 85 starts. Biffle had to go to a backup car after crashing his primary car in practice, forcing him to start today’s race from the rear of the field, fortunately the backup car was the same car that he won with at California five races ago. Biffle worked his way from the back of the pack at the drop of the green and had the lead already at lap number 87 and the rest of the field knew that they were in for a long day. Biffle led the race seven times for a total of 219 of the race’s 334 laps, Tony Stewart was second on the laps-led list at 45. Biffle won by 3.244 seconds over Jamie McMurray to manage his first win in Texas and the fourth victory for car-owner Jack Roush at Texas Motor Speedway. All four of Roush’s victories at Texas have been with four different drivers. McMurray finished in the second position, posting his third straight top-ten finish in three races at Texas Motor Speedway. Points leader Jimmie Johnson scored a third-place effort, giving him a top ten in every race this season. For the first time ever, three Chip Ganassi-owned cars finished in the top five, as teammates Casey Mears and Sterling Marlin rounded out the top five in the finishing order.
