BROOKLYN, Mich. - Greg Biffle took advantage of a late restart to win the Pure Michigan 400 today at Michigan International Speedway.
Biffle pulled away from Brad Keselowski on a green-white-checkered finish for his second win of the season. Defiance native Sam Hornish, Jr., finished 12th in the 200-lap race, which featured eight cautions, including the final caution with five laps left in the race after Jimmie Johnson's engine blew. Johnson had just taken over the lead four laps before his engine malfunctioned.
Mark Martin, who won the pole on Friday for today's race, led 54 of the first 70 laps of today's race before he spun out coming out of the fourth turn of the 65th lap. Bobby Labonte lost control of his car and skidded backwards, missing one car but catching Martin, who spun off the track and careened into the end of the wall on pit road, missing a nearby television cameraman.
