Larson, Truex take top 2 spots in Michigan qualifying

There hasn’t been a full-time African American driver on NASCAR’s premier circuit since Virginian Wendell Scott retired in 1973 Dale Earnhardt Jr. Snapped Winless Streaks at Michigan Before

He'll be bringing weekly NASCAR picks, analysis and breakdowns to help you cash on DraftKings. At the very least, he isn't going to lose you any points, and he should be able to end up in the Top 30. Be sure to read our free NBA Ebook on building lineups, general strategy and more.

"It would allow us to do more of the tests, and that's where you get faster", Jones said.

Another race, another first-time victor. Rounding out the top 10 were Martin Truex Jr., Busch, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jimmie Johnson. Keselowski's No. 2 Ford edged Kyle Busch for the fastest lap of the final session. I would say he has more than earned his stripes!

"Cool to win it", Larson said while hold his son Owen in Victory Lane. Expect Truex to lead his share of laps and score a bunch of stage points. Logano will face stiff challenges from drivers such as Chase Elliott, who's looking to become the fourth driver this season to earn his first Cup race victory. We are the best in the business!

Sunday's race is the 15th on the Cup schedule, and it will be broken into three stages: 60, 61-120 and 121-200, with bonus points being awarded at the conclusion of the segments.Kyle Larson grabbed the pole in Friday's qualifying session with a lap of 202.156 miles per hour, and he will start alongside Martin Truex Jur. Right now the focus is on Sunday and hopefully we'll have two good practices in race trim tomorrow. Everyone else is over 100 points behind.

Let's now take a look at some of the top trends here at MI leading up to race weekend. "They were pretty fast leading up to MI last year, but I feel like since MI when we got that win we have just continued to make them better and had a great offseason - and started the year off really good".

Justin Allgaier pulled a theft on his JR Motorsports teammate Elliott Sadler in last Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Pocono. Both have a sub 6.0 average finish. He placed eighth there a year ago.

Kevin Harvick also has 7/1 odds to win today. In 12 starts this season, the driver of the No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevy has garnered four top 10's.

"We're finishing near 15th race to race, which is where we expect to be". He also delivered a Top 10 finish at Michigan's sister track, Auto Club Speedway, back in March.

He will start dead last after his qualifying time was disallowed, making him an absolute bargain in this format. He originally qualified 24th but got a penalty for an unapproved body mod moving him to the rear of the field.

Allmendinger hit the wall in the closing moments of final practice.

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.

"You have no idea how good this feels", Logano said.

"I'm out there driving defensively", Smith, who finished a career-best sixth in points past year in the ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards, said.
