Kyle Larson sits with 9/2 odds to win at MIS as of Saturday morning.
Kyle Larson won the FireKeepers Casino 400 from Michigan International Speedway on Sunday afternoon.
A week after he lost the lead after the final restart of the race at Pocono, Busch was leading with 22 laps to go when NASCAR threw a caution for debris in turn 2.
After a restart with five laps left, Logano traded paint with Denny Hamlin to secure the third spot and felt fortunate to get it.
Martin Truex Jr. qualified second, meaning the top two drivers in the points standings will start from the front Sunday.
Busch was gambling on fuel, and had the caution never come out he may have been able to win his first playoff-clinching win of the season.
Larson laid down a lap in 35.616 seconds/202.156 miles per hour in the waning minutes of the third and final round of knock-out style qualifying. Last week Ryan Blaney with minimal place differential value won the race and was around 5% owned in tournaments.
"I tried to carry speed in there, and obviously I got sucked around and just tried to minimize the losses, at that point".
"This is a decent starting spot for us for Sunday and MI is not one of our best tracks or favorite tracks, but we try to get it better here each and every time and right now I feel pretty good about it", Busch said.
"I'm pretty surprised the guys feel like the damage isn't too bad, and they can get that stuff pulled back out and get the shape of the body back".
The fact is both drivers clearly have had the fastest cars all season long. "The 3 Chevy was really, really fast, and it was cool to win it". And today, his kids tagged along for Father's Day weekend. They're insisting the driver dress up as Chewbacca, and he's really looking forward to "sweating my butt off in some big fury costume this Halloween". Like I said, we still got to make our cars faster. "We'll keep plugging away to get that pole".
Despite a third-place finish in a race he won a year ago, Joey Logano is bound to remember how happy he was Sunday - Father's Day - for the rest of his life.
The Wood Brothers Racing driver has notched one win, three top-five and five top-10 finishes and also secured his first career pole at Kansas, and the season isn't even to the halfway point.
Joey Logano finished third.
"I don't think he knew I was there", Keselowski said.
"You know, all these people getting together to watch one thing, a whole bunch of left turns, but it's an fantastic thing right", says Donald Herron. Elliott was second in both MI races previous year, and again Sunday. In the final round, the twosome traded spots on the board with Busch stopping the clock at 37.197 seconds, 19.564 miles per hour to get both his third pole and third top-10 start of the 2017 season.
After starting 26th, Wallace was proud of his effort to break into the top 20. On the next to last restart, Blaney fell back into the field and got crammed between a number of cars, causing contact that wound up with Patrick sliding across the track and being introduced to a wall.
"Let's see: I was 19, I think I was working at Subway making sandwiches". I wasn't able to stay attached to the 42. Truex, Kyle Busch, Harvick, Bowyer, Logano, Keselowski, Hamlin and Elliott rounded out the top 10 with 30 cars on the lead. Defending race victor Joey Logano finished third in the No. 22 Team Penske Ford. The Rochester Hills native finished 16th.style="text-align: center;"
