MARBURY -- Tommy Biffle of Wagoner, Okla., managed to hang onto the big one that almost got away yesterday and held the lead after two days of the four-day Bassmaster BP Top 100 pro-am tournament on the Potomac River in Charles County.Biffle, who ended the tournament's first day tied at 15 pounds, 6 ounces with Randy Dearman of Onalaska, Texas, added 19 pounds, 4 ounces yesterday with a limit of five bass."Funny thing about the big bass I caught today," said Biffle, who weighed in the largest fish in the tournament so far at 7 pounds, 14 ounces, "when I finally got it to my hand, got my hand in its mouth, the bait fell out. It was just barely hooked."

Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch have just been downgraded to the undercard in NASCAR's contentious Summer Slam Series. Make way for Greg Biffle and Boris Said. Their post-race road rage at Watkins Glen on Monday had all the feisty elements necessary for a full-blown rivalry. It doesn't get any better than Said calling Biffle a "scaredy cat" and asking people to text him Biffle's address so he can make an unexpected house call and show him a little vigilante justice. NASCAR officials are investigating the incident because punches were thrown.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Jack Roush must have been practicing for the day that NASCAR limits him to three cars. His drivers swept only the first three positions in yesterday's Banquet 400. Mark Martin, Roush's original driver on what is now a five-car team, got his first points-race win of the season (previously this year, he had won only the All-Star Challenge in Charlotte in May), with Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards second and third. "I don't feel we had a sweep because we didn't have all five in the top five," Roush said, apparently only half-kidding.

Greg Biffle still has a shot at making the Chase. Jamie McMurray is toast. But they have this much in common: Both shouldn't be struggling and sputtering so much. For Biffle, who ranks 14th and needs a victory to try to secure one of the last slots in the 12-driver Chase field, perhaps the answer is a new crew chief. Matt Puccia became the new point man on the headset for Biffle, Roush Fenway Racing announced Monday. He replaces Greg Erwin , who has been with the organization since 2004.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - It is the unlikeliest marriage of man and machine. Two rivals who wouldn't dare speak to each other as their stock cars rumbled throughout the country for 36 weeks of the year. After years of in-house friction in the Ford family, Jack Roush and Robert Yates finally decided to make nice by merging their engine-building operations in the offseason. The new empire showed plenty of muscle yesterday, filling up the top two qualifying slots for the Daytona 500 Sunday. Greg Biffle, whose banged-up car couldn't even run here for the 2002 Daytona 500, snatched the pole with a time of 188.387 mph, followed by Elliott Sadler (188.

HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- His dad thought he'd be good at age 4. At 34, he's a two-time NASCAR champion. He is Tony Stewart, who for weeks has been the front-runner to win the Nextel Cup. And why not? He had five wins, more top-fives than anyone else and by week's end had the endorsement of his closest rivals inside the garage at Homestead-Miami Speedway. "It will be a travesty if Tony doesn't win [the] championship," Jack Roush, owner of two of the three cars that had a chance to catch Stewart, said Friday.

Oklahoma pro fisherman Tommy Biffle sometimes takes an unusual approach to bass fishing -- he looks for muddy water."Often I fly over a lake [before a tournament] just to find muddy-water regions," Biffle says. "As a matter of fact, at home in Oklahoma, I fish water as red as tomato soup."There are several advantages of fishing muddy water, according to Biffle, who won the B.A.S.S. Megabucks championship last year.* Most fishermen prefer clearer water, so fishing pressure is lighter in areas of stained or muddy water.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Remember Jeff Gordon? You know, the senior statesman of NASCAR, the four-time champion who seemed to be fading fast at the age of 34? Who after 72 career wins dropped off the radar screen this summer, not even making the Chase for the Nextel Cup? Well, make that 73 career victories. Gordon surged back yesterday to win the Subway 500 by surprising Tony Stewart, who dominated the first 300 laps of the race, and then holding off Stewart on the final restart with three laps to go. Gordon's fourth win of the season, but his first since Talladega, Ala., 23 races ago, back on May 1, didn't do him any good toward a championship.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Greg Biffle and his Roush Racing teammates moved up yesterday from mere control of the Nextel Cup series to something more on the order of dominance. Biffle won the Batman Begins 400 to lead a rush of Roush Fords to four of the top five positions. Only Tony Stewart, who finished second in a Chevrolet, broke up the parade. Mark Martin was third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards. The win was Biffle's fifth of the season, the most for any Nextel Cup driver. It was the Roush team's third straight victory and eighth of the season, to seven wins by all of the other teams combined.

DOVER, Del. - To many among the 140,000 at Dover International Speedway yesterday - and even to a few drivers in Nextel Cup cars racing against him - the appearance of Greg Biffle as the driver to beat was unexpected. "Where did Greg Biffle come from?" were the first words spoken by second-place finisher Kyle Busch yesterday after Biffle and his No. 16 Ford had scored a 4.281-second victory over Busch in his No. 5 Chevrolet in the MBNA RacePoints 400. "At the end, there was no catching Greg Biffle," Busch said.
