Biffle wins, Johnson regains Chase lead

On a crazy day in Kansas City, Kan., Greg Biffle won the Lifelock 400. He scored his first win of the season by winning a race that was stopped twice for rain delays, was shortened 85 miles because of darkness, ended under caution and saw six Chase drivers finish 29th or worse. Jimmie Johnson settled for third to reclaim the points lead. Johnson and Clint Bowyer insist that when Biffle’s sputtering car slowed before the finish line, Johnson and Bowyer passed him and believed they finished ahead of him. “Their opinion really doesn’t count, as far as I’m concerned,” Biffle said.
