INDIANAPOLIS, July 28 (UPI) -- Jason Leffler took the lead from Greg Biffle with two laps to go Saturday night to win the Kroger 200 Busch Series race in Indianapolis.

The win was Leffler's second Busch victory and the first checkered flag for Toyota.

Aric Almirola led the 43-car field for much of the contest but fell back during a pit stop on lap 95.

Leffler moved into second place with 13 laps to go and took advantage of a caution flag with nine laps left to pass Biffle on the restart. He held Biffle off the rest of the way to grab the win.

David Reutimann, Carl Edwards and Ron Hornaday rounded out the top five.
