Biffle Wins Bashas' Supermarkets 200
Greg Biffle used pit strategy and a little luck to win Friday night’s Bashas’ Supermarkets 200 Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Biffle stayed out during the last caution, and used a series of late cautions to hold off those who were on fresher tires.
The victory is owner Jack Roush’s 100th Nationwide Series victory.
Jason Leffler, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Kevin Harvick rounded out the top 5.
David Ragan, Brendan Gaughan, Justin Allgaier, Mike Bliss, and Kyle Busch finished sixth through 10th, respectively.
Notables: Steve Wallace (12th), Jeff Burton (20th), Carl Edwards (33rd), and Michael Waltrip (4oth).
Give a call to Keselowski who finished third for his third consecutive week.
Edwards led 79 laps but had engine trouble — he broke a valve spring — and ended up finishing 33rd.
Busch had a tire problem that put him two laps down, but he rallied to finish 10th. With his top 10, Busch took over the points lead from Edwards.
