LifeLock 400 - Kansas Speedway

Biffle Wins Shortened Event in Kansas
This one had it all. Greg Biffle won it, a twice red-flagged, wreck-marred, rain-plagued event that was eventually shortened because of darkness. Biffle was ahead at 210 laps when Juan Pablo Montoya blew a tire bringing out the day's final caution. Six of the 12 Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup championship contenders were sidelined by accidents in a wild and wooly event that started shortly after 1 p. m. and local time and ended after sundown at 7:10. Trailing Biffle, who led the final 32 laps, was Clint Bowyer, a Kansas native and favorite son at this 1.5-mile speedway, and defending series champion Jimmie Johnson. Johnson took over the points lead with Jeff Gordon, who finished fifth in the race, in second spot. Casey Mears had another good run, finishing fourth. It was a heart-breaking day for Chase contender Tony Stewart, who was leading when the race was red-flagged the second time. On the restart after a two-hour wait, a seven-car pileup included Stewart, who suffered front end damage. Nursing an ill-handling car, Stewart had a flat, was waving to let the guys behind him know he was slowing down, and was punched from behind by Kurt Busch. The wreck ended Stewart's day. Busch was running behind Tony Raines, who was right behind Stewart. When Raines swerved to miss Stewart, Busch had no time to react and drove into the rear of Stewart's car, sending him into the outside retaining wall. Rounding out the top 10 were Kevin Harvick, Reed Sorensen, Elliott Sadler, Kasey Kahne and Dale Earnhardt Jr. With the third-place finish, Johnson took the points lead, followed by Gordon (six points behind) and Bowyer (14 points behind). Matt Kenseth streaked away at the start after pole winner Jimmie Johnson had to start from the rear. Johnson wrecked his pole-winning Chevrolet in the final practice session. NASCAR rules allow drivers to use backup cars but they forfeit their starting position in the process.

Jimmie Johnson Grabs Another Pole Position
Defending NASCAR NEXTEL Cup champion Jimmie Johnson won the pole position for the LifeLock 400 at Kansas Speedway on Friday afternoon with a lap of 30.846 seconds, at an average speed of 175.063 mph. It is Johnson's 12th Bud Pole in 212 career NASCAR NEXTEL Cup races, his third pole in the last four races and his second in a row. This is his 20th top-10 start in 2007, tied with Denny Hamlin, who will start seventh, for the most top-10 starts this season. This is Johnsonís second Bud Pole in six races at Kansas Speedway, becoming the first repeat Bud Pole winner in seven races here. Matt Kenseth qualified in the third position but will start from the outside pole after Ryan Newmanís second-place qualifying time was disallowed following post-qualifying inspection, forcing the No. 12 car to start Sunday's race from the 42nd position. The infraction was due to the roof being too low. Kenseth posted his eighth top-10 start of 2007, matching his season-best starting position for the third time. It is his third consecutive top-10 start in seven Kansas races. Scott Riggs qualified third as the fastest of the drivers required to make the field on time. It is his eighth top-10 start in the 23 races that he has qualified for this season. It is his second top-10 start in four races at Kansas. He started second here in 2006. David Ragan (19th) was the fastest qualifying rookie.
