So who doesn't want to go to the White House? Don't ask that question in the NASCAR garage. You might get an indignant stare. Or a lot of lip from a driver who thinks you have labeled him a Communist. A silly "controversy" is brewing because several drivers have declined an invite from President Obama to visit the White House on Wednesdayto honor the 12 drivers who made the 2010 Chase for the Championship. Greg Biffle, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick have declined, citing scheduling conflicts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"I've been in games where somebody said, `Your numbers were good,' but we lost. It doesn't matter. Numbers mean absolutely nothing." Jake Delhomme Carolina Panthers quarterback "To get it to stop, what they have to do is they have to say, `If you retaliate on purpose and we can tell that it was done blatantly to somebody, or spin somebody out on purpose, you will sit out the next week. No questions asked. There will be no discussions.'" Greg Biffle NASCAR driver, on how to eliminate dangerous driving during Nextel Cup races
