t like a coming-of-age race for Ver Antworten

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Greg Biffle gave Ford a milestone victory -- right down the road from company headquarters. Biffle raced to his second straight Sprint Cup win at Michigan International Speedway, easily holding off Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps Sunday. It was the 1,000th victory for Ford Motor Company across NASCARs three national series -- Cup, Nationwide and Truck. "What a great moment this is," said Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing. "We couldnt be prouder to have this moment come here today at Michigan in front of so many of our Ford friends. What a great race and a great day for Ford." It was Biffles first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS in August. Johnsons engine faltered with six laps left in that race. This time, he was about a second behind Biffle with three laps to go -- but a tire give way, and he dropped all the way to 28th. "I dont want to see anybody wreck," Biffle said. "It makes you feel good when you push the guy over the edge. He made a mistake, and thats what makes you feel good. You outsmarted him, or you beat him at his game." Harvick was second, 3 seconds behind Biffle. Martin Truex Jr. was next, followed by Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart. Johnson wasnt the only big name who ran into trouble. Jeff Gordon was out of contention almost immediately when he hit a spinning Bobby Labonte less than 10 laps into the 200-lap, 400-mile race. Gordon finished 39th, one spot behind Kasey Kahne, who led at the halfway point but appeared to blow a tire and went sliding into the wall. Kahnes car caught fire, but he was able to climb out quickly. Dale Earnhardt Jr., who won at MIS last June, finished 37th Sunday. He led for 34 laps, but his engine acted up about two-thirds of the way through the race. There were eight cautions for 38 laps. Biffle cruised to the finish in his No. 16 Ford. He finished second to Johnson the previous weekend at Pocono, but this time there was nobody left to challenge him at the end. It was Fords third Cup victory of the year -- Carl Edwards and David Ragan won at Phoenix and Talladega. Sunday was Ford Motor Companys 110th birthday. "There have been a lot of great teams and a lot of great drivers, a lot of great engine builders that have contributed to Fords success," Roush Fenway Racing owner Jack Roush said. "Im just proud and honoured to be part of that." This was the second Cup win of the year for Roush Fenway. Its been an emotional week for the racing community after the death of driver Jason Leffler on Wednesday at a dirt-track race in New Jersey. Biffle was quick to acknowledge Leffler while he celebrated his Fathers Day victory. "We are thinking about little Charlie Leffler that doesnt have a father today," he said. Biffle earned his 19th career victory and boosted his chances to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup, moving from 10th to eighth in the standings. Biffle finished in the top 10 for the 13th time in 21 races at MIS, which is about 60 miles from Ford headquarters in Dearborn. Edwards finished eighth. Kurt Busch qualified second but went into an early spin and finished 35th. Johnson still has a comfortable lead in standings, although Edwards closed the gap at the top from 51 points to 31. Johnson had a chance at his fourth victory of the year before scraping the wall late. Johnson has still never won a Cup race at MIS. "I thought this would be the year," he said. "Most of the time were leading and something happens, but I thought, OK, maybe coming from behind would be the difference. But something happened." Johnsons late mishap in his No. 48 Chevrolet did not result in a caution, so Biffle maintained his comfortable lead over Harvick. "I wasnt catching the 16 and didnt really feel it necessary to have a tire failure or an issue at that particular point," Harvick said. "So our best bet at that point was the 48 catches the 16 and something happening as those two guys were racing. But we just maintained and managed our gap between us and (Truex) to just hold that track position and not have anything silly happen." Harvick moved up one spot to fourth in the standings. Earnhardt fell from fourth to seventh. Youth Chiefs Jerseys .C. Lions has come to an end.

Womens Chiefs Jerseys .25 million option on reliever Jose Veras. ESPN looks at the major talking points from a chaotic and rain-delayed Brazilian Grand Prix, as Max Verstappen stole the plaudits and Lewis Hamilton ensured the championship fight goes to Abu Dhabi.?Shock: Red Bulls gamble to go on to intermediate tyres with both Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo after the final race restart. The rain intensified and both men had to pit to swap back to the full-wet tyre. Verstappens pace at the end suggested a win was there for the taking.Shocker: The only thing worse than losing control in the rain is doing it before the race has started. Romain Grosjean did just that, spinning off at the final corner of his exploratory lap to the grid and smashing his Haas into the wall. It ended a race that had looked so promising for the Haas driver having qualified in seventh position.The FIA was saved by the thrilling final half an hour -- the focus would have otherwise been on several questionable Safety Car and red flag calls.?Overtake of the race: Verstappen was on another level. His pass on Rosberg for second through Turns 2 and 3 was remarkable, going around the outside of the championship leader as he struggled for grip, in almost zero visibility. It may well go down as the pass of the season.Honourable mentions are also Red Bull awards: Daniel Ricciardo opting to pass Felipe Nasr around the outside of Turn 1, which was not the prefeerred option throughout the weekend.dddddddddddd However, Verstappen could have won the award twice over for the heartstopping pass on Perez for third with four laps to go.Tear-jerker of the race: Felipe Massa was given an emotional send-off in Brazil. He might not have wanted to finish with his car in the wall, but his walk down the pit lane, crying and draped in a Brazilian flag, was followed by a guard of honour from Mercedes and then former team Ferrari in front of his adoring home fans. A fitting send off for one of the sports best-loved drivers.?Save of the race: Verstappen, again, saving his car on lap 38 when it looked like he was about to brand the pit entry wall with a Red Bull. Not only did he save the car, he held on to second position despite Nico Rosberg getting alongside him into Turn 1.Drive of the day: Easy awarding this one. This felt like a coming-of-age race for Verstappen, a defining moment in a young career that keeps getting better and better. Hes had his critics this year but this race was sublime -- only Lewis Hamilton looked as comfortable in the wet conditions, with Verstappen passing cars like he was on a different circuit.Honourable mention to Felipe Nasr for an invaluable ninth for Sauber at his home race.
