Elliott Sadler went 14 years without a victory in the Nationwide Series. Now, he has two in the last three weeks. Sadler picked up his second victory of the season Saturday when his crew chief left him out on the track on old tires during the final caution at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee. The call put Sadler in the lead on the final restart, with 28 laps remaining, and he easily held off Kasey Kahne and Brad Keselowski. All four Nationwide races this season have been won by drivers who don't compete in the elite Sprint Cup Series.

Greg Biffle was proud of himself for an unlikely reason after winning the GFS Marketplace 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. yesterday. "The guys did a great job and I didn't make any mistakes, which is pretty unusual for me to race an entire day and not make any mistakes," Biffle said after pulling away to beat teammate Mark Martin by 8.216 seconds. Biffle, the only driver to win both the Busch and Craftsman Truck series championships, has struggled through most of his 65-race Nextel Cup career, finishing 20th in points last year as a rookie and failing to become a contender this season.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Kyle Busch won his fourth Sprint Cup race of the year, outlasting Jimmie Johnson in a green-white-checkered finish at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. Busch, the series points leader coming into the race, passed Johnson with about a dozen laps remaining and was opening up a comfortable margin when brother Kurt Busch scraped a wall, forcing a caution from laps 198 to 201. The yellow flag erased much of Kyle Busch's lead, but he was able to fight off a quick move from Johnson after the restart and pull away.

DOVER, Del. - Greg Erwin joined Penske Racing's NASCAR Nationwide series program this year as a crew chief because he wanted an opportunity to win a championship. With six races remaining, Erwin, from Hatboro, has Sam Hornish Jr. atop the Nationwide series points standings. Entering today's 5-hour Energy 200 race at Dover International Speedway, Hornish leads Austin Dillon by 15 points. Despite Hornish's consistency in the No. 12 Ford - one win, 13 top-five finishes - Erwin isn't tempted to fire up a title cigar.

GREG BIFFLE picked the perfect time to win his first Sprint Cup race of the year. Biffle's first-place finish Sunday at Michigan was Ford's 1,000th victory in NASCAR's top three series. "It's really exciting to see all that racing heritage, and to be able to be a part of that with the 1,000th win," said Biffle, a former Nationwide and trucks series champion. "I think I contributed over 50 of those, which is a small number compared to 1,000, but I'm still sure excited to be the number 1,000.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Greg Biffle raced to his second straight Sprint Cup win at Michigan International Speedway, easily holding off Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps yesterday. It was the 1,000th victory for Ford across NASCAR's three national series - Cup, Nationwide and Truck. It was Biffle's first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS in August. Johnson's engine faltered with six laps left in that race. This time, Johnson was about a second behind Biffle with three laps to go - but a tire gave way, and he dropped all the way to 28th.

Seeing things from behind the scenes is a lot different from seeing it on TV.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Jimmie Johnson looked as if he had already finished the hardest work. After starting at the back of the pack, he had moved up quickly, and when he passed Brad Keselowski for the lead on Lap 191 of 200, his No. 48 Chevrolet seemed to be the superior car. Then Johnson's engine faltered with only six laps remaining. He lost the race - and the NASCAR Sprint Cup points lead - to Greg Biffle on Sunday. "I got it turned around and was catching him, and then his engine failed," Biffle said.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Greg Biffle won the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday when leader Jimmie Johnson left the track because of engine trouble with six laps left. Johnson started the race from the back because of an engine change, but 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, and Biffle held off Keselowski by 0.416 seconds in the green-white-checkered finish.
