Biffle emerges late, lands Michigan victory

No. 16 driver secures 1,000th NASCAR win for Ford

NASCAR logoGreg Biffle feels right at home at Michigan International Speedway. He took the lead for good on a late restart and ran away from the field in the closing laps to win Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400.

The No. 16 Ford driver won his second straight race here and the 19th of his career. Four of those victories have come at MIS.

“It’s definitely a special day,” Biffle said after delivering Ford Motor Company its 1,000th victory in NASCAR’s three national series. “Just super-excited for Ford and sure excited to be No. 1,000.”

The win secured Biffle a berth in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and moved him up a spot to eighth in the standings.
