Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again

Both were second to the victor Kyle Larson.

NASCAR takes its action to Michigan Sunday for the Firekeepers Casino 400 at the Michigan International Speedway. Larson has now won the past two races at MIS; he won last August for his first career Cup win.

Wallace was having a quietly successful day before getting caught up in a wreck that sent Daniel Suarez and Danica Patrick crashing on the backstretch following a restart with 10 laps remaining.

Larson took control on a restart with five laps remaining and held off Chase Elliott on Sunday for his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season. Larson, who turned a final-round qualifying lap of 202.156 miles per hour after going 200.798 in practice, has a week of sprint-car racing scheduled before the Cup series goes to the road course at Sonoma, Calif., next weekend. Ryan Blaney, who had pitted under the caution flag, ran him down and passed Busch for the race win shortly after the race restarted. I fell back to fifth or so, was able to get enough momentum to get back to third. The Cars 3 Chevy was really, really fast.

With Sunday being Father's Day, it's only fitting that he celebrated the victory with his son, Owen.

"When I was sitting there 20th, no, I didn't think I had a shot at all obviously", Logano said laughing when asked if the fresh tires gave him optimism". "If I wipe out a auto, we don't have a big enough crew to get another one fixed for the next race".

Hylton finished second in Cup points three times in a career that spanned 1964 through 1993. "All in all, it's a good season so far and we'll continue building on what we've got".


The third-place finish boosted Logano to 10th in the series standings, 242 points behind series leader and MI victor Kyle Larson. In each of the first two stages, drivers finishing in the top 10 will receive championship points (10 to 1) with the victor receiving one playoff point. "Thrilled to say (wife) Brittany and I are expecting a Little Logano on 1/11/18".

"If they like you, they like you", he said.

That leaves Elliott with a little extra pressure entering MI this weekend, a track where he ran second twice previous year. He is a former victor with 10 top-5 finishes. Proud of the effort. Reed started 18th and finished 26th in an RFR Ford last fall at Talladega, but should he have to fill in for Bayne today, this would be his first trip at an open-motor track. Normally Harvick is among the favorites, but not this week, which I think is a mistake. I was there in my rookie year and my early years and can still remember the stress, the frustration at times when you don't capitalize on an opportunity and then the elation when you are able to pull it off.

Rounding out the top five were Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin. "Turning the momentum a bit and bringing home a solid top-five and change things".

Joey Logano has 10/1 odds to win today's race.

Late in Saturday's final practice, Brad Keselowski surged to the top of the board with a lap at 197.401 miles per hour. The Rochester Hills native went 193.149 miles per hour in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford.

"We went so low down the back straightaway that there was dust and stuff flying off the tires", Hamlin said. "Just inside-lane restarts at the end killed us, so just stings when you have to race like that, you know?"
