Greg Biffle scored his first victory of the season even though he ran short of fuel before crossing the finish line in a wild race that jumbled the Chase for the championship standings.
The Chase field imploded at Kansas Speedway. Rain and impending
darkness cut the race short by 85 miles. Seven of the 12 Chase
drivers finished 30th or worse and defending Nextel Cup champion
Jimmie Johnson reclaimed the points lead.
He was one of the few Chase drivers to make it unscathed to the finish line.
The race ended under caution because Juan Pablo Montoya blew a
tire with four laps to go in a race that already had been shortened. It should have set up an overtime finish, but impending darkness forced NASCAR to run the final laps under caution.
