Larson, Truex take top 2 spots in Michigan qualifying

And then Larson? Not in Larson's view: Kyle Busch and, on the long run, Matt Kenseth, were better than him. (Kevin) Harvick must have gone for it and probably washed up on him. He will start 11th.

Prior to his one year stint with HScott Motorsports in 2016 that resulted in finishes of 23rd and 40th, Bowyer had nine top-10 finishes in 10 races at MI.

The 200-lap race will consist of three stages of 60, 60 and 80 laps. The Truck Series will be anywhere from two to four short of its 32-driver grid while the XFINITY Series needed start-and-park entries to fill its field of 40.

Sunday, Busch fell through the field too. I also have available my Race by Race Trends sheet you can view as well. I wish I could have the last restart back. After grabbing the pole, it appears that another dominant performance could be on tap this weekend.

Although he finished second in the first qualifying round, Busch did not think he had the fastest vehicle. His ownership is going to be through the roof. He is a former victor with 10 top-5 finishes. "This is our second Cup win of the year, but we've had six second place finishes". Keselowski took round one with a lap time of 37.234 seconds and a speed of 193.372 miles per hour while Busch followed behind with a 37.409-second run, 192.467 miles per hour.

He won the second stage of last weekend's race, and finished in seventh.

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.

"I don't know why they've got to throw so many damn debris yellows", Earnhardt said during a postrace Periscope broadcast. "There were times I wondered if this was going to happen, " Millican said. He was one of the fastest cars all weekend and had things well in hand until late in the race when he lost the lead.

The ideal scenario would have been Bowyer starting in the back of the pack, but he did the exact opposite, qualifying third. The inside lane, typically not the preferred groove, doomed him to a sixth-place finish. "Picked up a little bit (in round two) but everyone picked up as well". Held in Brooklyn, Michigan, the two-mile track is the first of two events held at Michigan during the season. No need for any of these teams to panic yet as we now have 12 races remaining in the regular season before the Playoffs begin but expect the drivers without that win to push a little harder at the end of each stage to gain as many points as possible.

While his overall record at MI leaves a lot to be desired, but he does have back-to-back Top 15s in the June race. "Top 20 is good". He should be one of the safest lower-priced plays.

Elliott finished second to Logano last June at MI and second to Larson in August. If he just stays out of trouble, he will deliver a decent score for the price. The Byron, Mich., native was also the fastest qualifying rookie. 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".
