BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) - Greg Biffle won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday when leader Jimmie Johnson's car left the track with engine trouble with only six laps remaining.
Johnson started the race from the back because of an engine change, but he made it all the way to the lead and looked as though he had the superior car after passing Brad Keselowski on lap 191 of 200. But Johnson couldn't hold on, and Biffle took advantage.
After Johnson faltered, there was a caution for oil on the track. Biffle held off Keselowski by 0.416 seconds in the green-white-checkered finish.
Kasey Kahne finished third, followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Marcos Ambrose.
