Greg Biffle Wins Again at Michigan
Greg Biffle feels right at home at Michigan International Speedway. He took the lead for good on a late restart and ran away from the field in the closing laps to win Sunday's Quicken Loans 400. The No. 16 Ford driver won his second straight race here and the 19th of his career. b"It's definitely a special day," Biffle said after delivering Ford Motor Company its 1,000th victory in NASCAR's three national series. "Just super-excited for Ford and sure excited to be No. 1,000." The win secured Biffle a berth in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and moved him up a spot to eighth in the standings. Sprint Cup Series points leader Jimmie Johnson was gaining on Biffle in the final laps but a cut right-front tire took him off the track with two laps to go. Kevin Harvick finished second and Truex, Kyle Busch andTony Stewart rounded out the top five.

Friday Night Drags are Back at Texas Motor Speedway
Texas Motor Speedwayʼs hottest summer event, Friday Night Drags Presented by Scion, has returned for its fifth season of racing. This is street racing at its safest and best, where people can bring their own street cars out and drag race down the 1/8-mile pit road drag strip. Friday Night Drags presented by SCION was developed to curtail illegal street racing in North Texas. After the first four seasons, Texas Motor Speedway has seen over 1,000 different drivers participate in the safe racing environment. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for people between the ages of 15 and 20. An average of 135 people die in the United States annually in street racing-related accidents and 58% of these fatalities are people between ages 15 and 20. Along with all the drag racing action, fans can check out some of the best in custom and vintage cars during the Show-n-Shine competition held in the Speedway infieldʼs South Paddock. More information, including divisions and rules, can be found at www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
Who's Hot: Jeff Gordon is the only driver with a Top-10 finish in each of the last seven races at Sonoma. He also has a record five wins at the track.
Who's Not: Denny Hamlin has an average finish of 35th in the last six road course races. In fact heʼs had so much trouble making left and right turns, that heʼs only finished one of the last five road races.
