Greg Biffle may have started his Roush Racing Ford from the back of the NASCAR Busch series field at the Pikes Peak International Raceway, but when the checkered flag flew, he was the racer in the front.

Biffle earned his fourth Busch race victory this season with a charge after the final caution on lap 215 of the 250-lap race.

"I just rode around there for a while, I had to wait for a caution, then I was going to race hard. We played strategy today," said Biffle who did not qualify the car as he was qualifying yesterday for this weekend NASCAR Cup race in Long Pond, PA.

ST Motorsports' Stacy Compton gave Ford a one-two finish by clinching second. Jason Leffler put his Haas CNC Racing Chevy in third followed by Clint Bowyer in the Kevin Harvick/Richard Childress Racing Chevy.

Points leader Martin Truex Jr finished fifth while Kyle Busch was back in 17th place; Truex now leads Busch by 142 points in the standings.

Biffle is now in flight back to the Pocono mountains to run in tomorrow's NASCAR Cup race.
