The Monster: Greg Biffle Wins Second Straight Chase Race

Michael VoyerSenior Analyst ISeptember 21, 2008

Early on it seemed as though a great race to be predicted, Kurt Busch spun out with contact from David Gilliland, then Patrick Carpentier spun out right in front of Jimmie Johnson and tapped Carl Edwards. Joe Nemicheck was the typical wreck, tire troubles which led to pit stops, and going in Jamie McMurray was the leader and coming out Matt Kenseth.

The race was the second of the ten races for the chase and problems aimed at Dale, Jr. when he blew his tire out and caused him to spin out and messed up his fender and did a great job of not hitting the wall. 

Red Bull Racing has had such a tough time since last year when they started the team with Brian and A.J. but like the usual for that team A.J. made contact with Kasey Kahne and had a tire rub. Which if you saw the caution being waved Jarrett had announced it as a  blown engine. 

Robby Gordon and Jamie McMurray had some contact when Robby tried to cut Jamie to the wall and spun out causing both drivers to wreck. Jamie making post caution contact by taking his car and sliding across the front of Robby's car.

Then not much later in the race Sam Hornish got pinched up into the wall by the start/ finish line, on the turn he slid slightly and hit the wall bringing out another caution and a great prediction of a great race.

The last greatest of all the things to happen was Kyle Busch, winner of the Dover Nationwide Series Race blew his engine up, a little less than half way through the race Kyle had smoke coming from his pipes and then less than 100 laps later Kyle blew the engine up while under caution from Sam Hornish's crash. Kyle Finished 43.

The eighth caution of the day came when Sam Hornish made a back to back crash and wrecked again. This caution there were 24 cars on the lead lap.

All together with 100 laps to go Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson went three wide and Greg took the lead, Carl second and Jimmie third and it was a close three wide run.

Juan Pablo had a tire go down and wow if you could see the right side of the car, it was amazing, not saying that it was good, it was a bad thing for such a great driver.

The winner of the race: Greg Biffle for the second straight week.
