Today in NASCAR history

2001: Greg Biffle survives a green-white-checkered overtime finish, holding off Jack Sprague in the Chevy Silverado 150 for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Phoenix International Raceway. Biffle, who led 79 of the 159 laps, finished just .542 seconds ahead of Sprague, who paced 66 laps. Rick Crawford ran third. Biffle followed the win with a triumph at Phoenix the following day in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Barring a return to the truck series, which he hasn’t competed in since 2004, it will stand as Biffle’s final win on the tailgate tour.
