NASCAR driver Biffle gets his 18th win at Michigan

Brooklyn, MI -

The Pure Michigan 400 was held on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, with Greg Biffle winning his second race in 2012.

Mark Martin started with the lead until his car spun out of control, putting him into the pit road, causing him to hit an opening in the wall for a big time crash, but Martin himself was just fine.

With ten laps to go, Jimmie Johnson went to the inside of Brad Kezlowski to get in front.  With six laps remaining, suddenly Johnson had some engine trouble.  Greg Biffle took the opportunity to drive right by him for the first spot, taking the checkered flag for the win.

The 18th win for Biffle gives him the points lead.
