Biffle Wins To Become Third Standings Leader In As Many Races
Uneasy is the head that wears the crown. Greg Biffle is the third different driver to lead the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings in as many races. Biffle’s second victory of the season Sunday at Michigan International Speedway is worth three additional bonus points to the standings reset when the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup™ begins on Sept. 16 at Chicagoland Speedway.
“GREG BIFFLE: Well, I know that a lot of people don’t expect us to win the championship, don’t expect us to compete for the title. I don’t care what they say or who they want to talk about or what they talk about. We will be a factor when it comes down to Homestead, I promise you that.”
Five drivers among the current top 10 have won two or more races. Jimmie Johnson, who lost the victory, three Chase bonus points and the standings lead when his engine failed six laps short of the finish in Michigan, has three wins and nine bonus points. So do Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart. Biffle and 10th-place Denny Hamlin also have won twice with three races remaining in the Race to the Chase.
