Stage racing expected to spice up NASCAR action at Michigan International Speedway

Kyle Busch qualified fourth, followed by Denny Hamlin, Pocono victor Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano and Jamie McMurray.

Larson won the pole Friday and Truex qualified second, another impressive showing for the duo that's been so consistently strong this season.

In 15 starts at the two-mile track, Keselowski has five top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. "I've probably been here 10 times before as a fan and got to do the ARCA race a year ago here".

Larson started from the pole, led the most laps and was able to hold the lead throughout three restarts over the last 20 laps to give himself a Father's Day present.

The No. 2 Blue Deuce driver claims five top fives, 10 top 10s and a 12.3 average finish at the Brooklyn, Mich., track. Our cars were good there past year when we ran the low downforce package, so hopefully well have good speed in our Chevy and can contend for another win.”.

Larson started on the pole and led a race-high 96 of 200 laps in scoring his second victory of the 2017 Monster Energy Cup Series season, with his previous win coming at Auto Club Speedway in March.

Clint Bowyer was third at Fontana earlier this season and has top-10 finishes in half of his career races at MI. "I'm happy that we just had a solid day and put ourselves in position on late race restarts".

For a limited time, I am offering a copy of my DFS NASCAR cheathsheet which includes Track History, Current Form, Odds, Track Type History, Practice/Qualifying Ranks and much more. Matt Kenseth and Kyle Larson round out the Top 5 as both have a win here in the last two years and each has two Top 5's.

In his second race in the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford as a substitute driver for injured Aric Almirola, Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. will start 26th.

Only four drivers led the race. "Getting the pole after winning here past year, we just hope to keep it going". His margin of victory over Elliott was 0.993 seconds. "So far it's been a really good weekend leading in practice and then getting the quick time here".

What to Watch For: Ryan Blaney, 23, tries to win again after picking up his first career victory at Pocono. Ten different drivers have won Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season. First and foremost, he has been excellent at MI, notching seven Top 5s in the last eight races here and leading the second most laps in six starts with Stewart-Haas Racing.

There were three restarts in the final 15 laps. The second-year driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet is sixth in points.

Third through fifth were Clint Bowyer (201.664 mph), Kyle Busch (201.523) and Denny Hamlin (201.337).
