Biffle Wins At Michigan After Johnson Blows Engine Late

Last updated on Monday, August 20, 2012

(Brooklyn, MI) - Greg Biffle held off Brad Keselowski to win NASCAR’s Pure Michigan 400 and take over the Sprint Cup points lead.

Pole winner Mark Martin led a race-high 54 laps but a scary accident on pit road led to his early exit.

Biffle beat Keselowski to the line by four-tenths of a second to claim his second win of the season and punch hit ticket into the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Kasey Kahne finished third followed by Dale Earnhardt Junior and Marcos Ambrose.

Biffle holds a 20-point edge on Matt Kenseth in the points standings with Earnhardt third, 22 points back.

Jimmie Johnson entered the weekend as the points leader but fell back to fourth place when an engine problem late in yesterday's race dropped him to a 27th-place finish.
