Greg Biffle won under lights at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night to take his first Busch win for the year

Biffle Wins Phoenix Busch Race

Biffle took the win despite spinning by himself to bring out the first caution of the night. It was a night full of crashes and cautions, with 14 caution periods for a total of 67 laps, one-third of the race distance. There were also two red flag stoppages.

Biffle recovered from his early spin to lead the last 71 laps, taking the win ahead of Elliott Sadler, David Stremme, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.

All the caution periods allowed 24 cars to finish on the lead lap. A top ten finish for Carl Edwards saw him maintain a healthy lead in the points standings.
