NASCAR At Martinsville Results 2012: Ryan Newman Steals Win, Greg Biffle Remains Overall Leader

On Sunday, NASCAR had the sixth race of its 2012 Sprint Cup Series. Washington drivers Kasey Kahne entered the race with high hopes, but ultimately Ryan Newman edged out AJ Allmendinger as he got lucky and escaped a three-car spinout on a green-white-checkered-flag double-restart to end the race.

Kasey Kahne came into the race with great positioning and plenty to prove. He began the race as the pole position in the starting lineup, but amazingly once again had horrible luck, finishing 38th and having to exit the race early due to engine problems.

Biffle seemed befuddled by the short track for the majority of the race. This befuddlement began even before the race itself, as evidenced by his placing 26th in the starting lineup. In the end, he had his worst finish of the season, but still came in 14th and remains the overall points leader, with 225 points against Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s 221.
