(AP) Sunday was a rough day for Hendrick Motorsports.


Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. had promising rides derailed by car problems, and Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon's shot at winning at Michigan International Speedway ended less than 10 laps in because of a crash.


Throw in a cut tire that left Kasey Kahne 38th, and none of the racing giant's four entries cracked the top 25.


Greg Biffle took the lead after a late restart and pulled away for his first Sprint Cup victory of the season and second straight at MIS.


Johnson, whose points lead shrunk to 31 points after he finished 28th, was chasing Biffle in the closing laps, but a tire gave way. He has never won a Cup race at MIS.
