After a two-day rain delay, the Busch series event at Dover International Speedway has been won by Greg Biffle. Biffle outmaneuvered David Green in the races closing laps to score his third win of the season.
"Brad (Parrott, crew chief) told me early on, 'Just take it easy, take it easy," Biffle said. "Then we made some adjustments to the car and it just took off."
The win marks Biffle's 14th career victory and a sweep of the Busch and Cup events for Roush Racing (Mark Martin won the Cup race on Sunday).
Biffle ran up front most of the event, but when he managed to drive around leader David Green on lap 179, the No. 60 Ford took off to earn Biffle's his second win at Dover.
Martin Truex, Jr., who led a race high 75 laps, also passed Green and finished second.
We had one of the best cars all day," Truex said.
"We just lost the track a little bit there at the end. I was real good up through the middle of the race, and (winner Greg) Biffle was real, real loose when I got behind him. We freed it up that last stop - just not enough. We were just too tight at the end of the race."
David Green dropped back to a disappointing third place result.
"We were just on older tires," commented Green. "And those guys just got by us."
Bobby Hamilton, Jr. was fourth, and point leader Kyle Busch completes the top five.
Multiple caution flags waved on Monday for minor skirmishes and one multi- car melee on lap 43. Johnny Sauter lost control in turn 4, and well all was said and done, the cars of David Stremme, Ashton Lewis, Jr., Joe Nemechek, Mike Wallace and Andy Ponstein all suffered damage.
A caution on lap 146 propelled David Green into the race lead, when leader Truex pitted with most of the lead lap cars. Green elected to stay on the track. Robby Gordon had inherited the lead during the stops, but a blown right rear tire saw his victory lane dreams melt in a mire of rubber with 80 laps to go.
