Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again

Kyle Larson front left and Martin Truex Jr. lead the field to start a NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race Sunday

Michigan International Speedway has been one of his best tracks.

Kyle Larson, center, talks with crew members after securing the pole during qualifying Friday, June 16, 2017, for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race in Brooklyn, Mich. "This is our second Cup win of the year, but we've had six second-place finishes", Larson said.

In the Yahoo game, I'm hoping to take advantage of Michigan's tendency to produce clean races to go aggressive with my lineup and load up on big names. "We always seem to have a lot of speed (at Michigan)", Larson, who's second to Martin Truex Jr.in points, said.

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. He has eight straight Top 20 finishes, including four straight Top 15s, heading into Sunday's race. "Really all year long, I think we've had a really good qualifying average". "Fans were a little bit skeptical at first".

Brad Keselowski has 7/1 odds to win today and I like those odds for him on his home track.

The FireKeepers Casino 400 gets underway later this afternoon. The veteran driver will be a Top-5 threat in Sunday's FireKeepers Casino 400. He placed eighth there previous year. On Sunday, he backed it up, leading a race-high 96 circuits en route to his second-career victory at the speedway.

He was then immediately rushed to a nearby hospital and required emergency surgery to relieve pressure from a brain bleed. Braidwood is now ranked first in heavyweight boxing in western Canada and is ranked ninth overall with KO boxing.

"I'm pumped to get to Michigan", Allgaier siad.

On the ensuing restart, which came with 10 laps to go, Larson was P1 and Elliott was next to him on the low side. He started second in the past two races at Pocono and Dover, and earlier in the season at Las Vegas. He pointed out that the track changes from year to year, and when you factor in the new format, it's too hard to predict what will happen once the green flag waves. Larson will start from the pole again Sunday, and the current king of the two-mile tracks is capable of delivering an equally dominant performance and finishing as the top scorer.

"I could tell by the RPM and the engine it was going to be a pretty good lap, so I was happy about that to get the pole after winning here a year ago".

In two Cup starts at Michigan, Elliott has been nothing short of spectacular. Busch ended up seventh, followed by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Dale Earnhardt Jr. First and foremost, he has been excellent at MI, notching seven Top 5s in the last eight races here and leading the second most laps in six starts with Stewart-Haas Racing.

Larson started from the pole and led 98 of the race's 200 laps. Seven different drivers have won the last seven MI races. Paul Menard, Ty Dillon, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Brad Keselowski and Ryan Sieg will all gain extra seat time.

What to Watch For: Chase Briscoe enters the race coming off a career-best runner-up finish at Texas. The second-year driver of the No. 24 Chevrolet is sixth in points. Grant Enfinger leads second-place Chase Briscoe in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings by four points.
