BROOKLYN, Mich. -

Greg Biffle claimed his second consecutive victory at Michigan International Speedway by winning the Quicken Loans 400 on Sunday.

Biffle easily held Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps.

It was the 1,000th victory for Ford across NASCAR's three national series -- Cup, Nationwide and Truck.

It was Biffle's first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS in August. Johnson's 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.

It was a rough day at the track for Hendrick Motorsports.  After dominating the first half of the race with Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kasey Kahne, and Jimmy Johnson all leading early.  Kahne wrecked while leading on Lap 103 and Earnhardt Jr. blew an engine while leading on Lap 129. Jeff Gordon wrecked on Lap 6 slamming into Bobby Labonte's spinning car.

 Harvick finished second, 3 seconds behind Biffle.  Martin Truex Jr. was next, followed by Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart.
