A NASCAR win for Brad Keselowski would make MI even more special

A NASCAR win for Brad Keselowski would make MI even more special

Kyle Larson is trying for a third straight Cup win at MI after victories this June and last August. Throw in the potential for lengthy green flag runs and suddenly fuel mileage becomes a factor as well, even with stage racing.

With the regular season winding down, the excitement to see which drivers sneak into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series playoffs continues to build. Junior needs a win.

Looking at the results from both MI and Fontana since the start of 2015, it has been Chase Elliott leading the way as he has yet to finish outside the Top 10 at a two-mile track. "It makes you want to win in their backyard and celebrate that victory with them".

Keselowski has now won three poles this season thanks to Friday's winning time of 35.451 seconds. Plus a Darlington win would be the storybook finish that NASCAR is looking for.

Can Kahne or someone else play spoiler in the Pure Michigan 400 and spoil the Chase for the Cup along the way? Three of his last four wins came after he was forced to start in the back.

The bad luck and bad finishes just seems to keep piling up on Joey Logano this season. From a dominator standpoint, we see a split when it comes to how many drivers lead laps.

Anthony Martial has now been directly involved in more Premier League goals (27) since 2015/16 than any other Man Utd player. Mkhitaryan plays a lovely first-time pass through to Martial and the Frenchman easily slots the ball under Hart.

Larson performed well enough in qualifying Wednesday to make the field for Saturday's top race at Knoxville. Now for the good news. He won the April race at Richmond this year, but that win was ruled encumbered due to a rear suspension violation, meaning that he can't use it to qualify for the playoffs.

Busch countered, telling ESPN, "Brad's a [expletive] moron".

Fridays kick off race weekend!

"It would be huge for me (to win at MIS)", said Keselowski after qualifying at Michigan on Friday.

A look at the top finishes in Brooklyn, Mich., for the Rochester Hills native. But this is the place to get it done, of course the same can be said for Earnhardt, Kenseth and Bowyer. Keselowski is already qualified for the playoffs and is listed at 18-1 odds this weekend. "We had a strong suspicion that those guys would kind of tune it down this weekend, so not to post a pretty big number in inspection that maybe balanced back out the competition, and potentially that's right because our team hasn't done much differently and those guys are just not as fast as they've been the last few weeks".
