Take Greg Biffle (+1500), 1/6th unit. I know he's sucked this year, I really do. Still, something tells me Biffle will contend for this win, and if he doesn't, I wash my hands of him for a while. It shocks me not to be taking Kurt Busch (+1200) and Matt Kenseth (+800) at this track, because they've been the kings here the past several years, but they qualified terribly (Kenseth starts 38th; Busch the Elder rolls off 42nd), and it's just so hard to get to the front at Bristol from way back there. So instead I'm going with a guy who should have a Bristol win, but for a bad pit decision in this race in 2004. Biffle is excellent at the concrete high-banked tracks, and he qualified 11th for this race.


I hope he is correct since I have a nice bet on Biffle at 25/1  wink

Historic Win for Busch
Pete Pistone

Kyle Busch put his name in the record books as the first "Car of Tomorrow" race winner with an exciting victory in Sunday's NEXTEL Cup Series Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Busch held off Jeff Burton in a green-white-checkered finish to score his first win of the season.

David Ragan's spin set-up the overtime run and Burton and Busch waged a tight, side-by-side battle for the lead ove rthe final two green flag laps.

But Busch was able to keep his Kellogg's Chevy ahead of Burton's Cingular Impala to notch the victory.

"Jeff Burton could have dumped me in turns 3 and 4, but I had some brownie points to use up from our Vegas finish," Busch said of the Busch Series battle the duo was involved in a couple weeks ago. "I guess I used them up all at once. It was a great battle for us."

It was his fourth career NEXTEL Cup Series win and the 600th series win for Chevrolet, the first for the Impala model as a "Car of Tomorrow" entry. Busch also scored Hendrick Motorsports' 200th NEXTEL Cup win.

"Kyle has always raced me clean and I tried to return that," Burton said.

Jeff Gordon, who started from the pole and dropped back with handling problems, rallied back to finish third. Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle rounded out the top five.

"This is what this team is made of," said Biffle. "We’ve had about four of these runs now, but this is the first one we’ve finished. I feel really good about it. Pat called me to take four tires and I was about a foot past the commitment line and I didn’t want to try and chance it. It’s unfortunate because I think we could have won possibly. We had a really good car on the short run and the long run, but we’ll never know."

Jeff Green, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Clint Bowyer, Jamie McMurray and Casey Mears completed the first ten finishers.

The NEXTEL Cup Series now heads to Martinsville Speedway for next Sunday's Goody's Cool Orange 500.
