FORT WORTH, Texas — Greg Biffle regained the lead when he charged under Jimmie Johnson with 30 laps left Saturday night, then pulled away to end his 49-race winless streak while giving owner Jack Roush another NASCAR Sprint Cup victory in Texas.
Johnson led 156 of the 334 laps while going for owner Rick Hendrick’s 200th career victory. But he never recovered, even scraping hard into the wall trying to catch up after Biffle drove under him in Turn 3 and completed the pass before the start-finish line.
Biffle, the season points leader, went on to win the fastest Cup race at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked Texas track. His average speed of 160.575 mph put him 3.2 seconds ahead of Johnson.
It was Roush’s ninth win in 23 Cup races at Texas.
