Biffle Spins And Wins

22450Jpg
AVONDALE, Az. - Greg Biffle brought out the first caution of the race with a spin but rallied back to win Friday night's Basha's Supermarkets 200 Busch Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.

After the early race altercation, Biffle worked his way back into contention during the caution-plagued event which saw a track record 14 caution flags for 67 laps. The race was also red flagged twice to clean up debris on the track.

Biffle easily drove to his 17th career Busch Series win. It was his first NBS victory since California last season.

"I seemed to have the better car on the long runs and Elliott Sadler had a great car on the shorter runs and could really do something with me," Biffle said.

"It's been a long time since I spun out by myself. I jumped on the throttle down there trying to get a run. It was my fault."

The win followed Biffle's second place run in last Saturday's Busch Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, a weekend which saw him win Sunday's NEXTEL Cup Series Samsung/Radio Shack 500.

Sadler seemed satisfied with his runner-up finish although was prepared for a shot at Biffle had the race included another late restart opportunity.

"We were good on the restarts and I was trying to save something in case we got a chance," Sadler said. "Biffle was pretty good. He's the guy to beat on Saturday and Sundays right now."

Elliott Sadler finished second followed by David Stremme, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.

Joe Nemechek, Michael Waltrip, Carl Edwards, Martin Truex, Jr. and J.J. Yeley completed the first ten finishers.

The Busch Series now heads to Talladega Superspeedway for next Saturday's Aaron's 312.
