After 400 miles of hard racing on Sunday at Pocono Raceway, a Jack Roush-owned car is sitting atop the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings for the 12th straight week.
But unlike the 11 previous weeks, it isn't Greg Biffle, who dropped from first to third overall after engine trouble relegated him to a 24th-place finish.
"It's unfortunate we fell back that far," Biffle said following his worst result of 2012. "But the points are so tight we knew that if we had an issue we were gonna drop a lot. ... You're vulnerable when you're only one point or 10 points ahead, but that's racing. As long as it doesn't happen in the Chase, I'm happy."
The Roush Fenway Racing teammate who replaced Biffle as the points leader is Matt Kenseth, who used a steady seventh-place finish to reclaim the No. 1 spot for the second time this season.
Kenseth has finished 11th or better in 10 of his last 11 starts, so it's no surprise Kenseth is in the position he's in points-wise heading into next weekend's race at Michigan.
"It's better than being second, but I'm just kind of disappointed right now because I thought we had a shot to win under the right circumstances," Kenseth said. "Us and [Dale Earnhardt Jr.] were pretty strong when we were out front and it just didn't happen. I couldn't go on restarts. I thought I was getting a good roll at them, but they would just kind of drive by me. That's frustrating.
"We'll keep working on it, but I'm happy we got a decent finish and took over the point lead."
