BROOKLYN, Mich. — Greg Biffle raced to his second straight Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, easily holding off Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps Sunday.
It was the 1,000th victory for Ford across NASCAR’s three national series — Cup, Nationwide and Truck.
It was Biffle’s first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS in August. Johnson’s engine faltered with six laps left in that race. This time, he was about a second behind Biffle with three laps to go – but a tire give way, and he dropped all the way to 28th.
“We beat [Johnson's] 48 today and that says a lot. He was really, really fast,” Biffle said. “Once we got out in clean air we could match up fairly well with the 48. He made a small mistake trying to catch us.”
Harvick was second, three seconds behind Biffle. Martin Truex Jr. was next, followed by Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart.
Johnson wasn’t the only big name who ran into trouble. Jeff Gordon was out o...

Carl Edwards felt like his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle should have helped him out on Sunday. Edwards was running second to Biffle with less than 50 laps to go in the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway when trash on the grille of his car made the engine’s temperature rise.

ON HIS LAP: “We really don’t know what is going to happen because of the early draw for us. I think the lap was decent. I told Matt (Puccia) we could have been a tenth or two better knowing how the car drove if I had to do it over again. That sure doesn’t help us though. The 20 beat us pretty good already and I have a feeling...
