Biffle Takes Win in Chase Race Number One at Loudon
Greg Biffle, a true, hard-charging stock car driver, hasn't been talked about that much in the buzz leading up to NASCAR's Sprint Cup Chase for the Championship. Some might say he was "The Forgotten Man." Not anymore. Biffle won Sunday.
He made the top 12 with an up-and-down season and started getting up to form in the races leading up to Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
On Sunday, he grabbed his first victory since last year at Kansas Speedway, the 13th of his Sprint Cup career. Biffle passed two-time champion Jimmie Johnson with 11 laps remaining and held Johnson off for the win.
Qualifying Washed Out for Second Consecutive Week
Race number one of the Chase for the Sprint Cup will kick off much like the race from last week, with the top-12 contenders starting at the front of the field. Qualifying for the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway was rained out, marking the second consecutive weekend that time trials have been canceled by inclement weather. The field for Sundayís race was set in accordance to NASCARís rule book, giving the top starting position to points leader Kyle Busch. Carl Edwards will roll off from the second spot, followed by Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the second row.
