This was the fifth time in the past eight races at MI that the pole-winner also won the race.

Clint Bowyer matched his best qualifying effort of the season and will start third on Sunday. "I thought we way improved from where we were past year, as far as those late-race restarts go, and was able to hang with them and, really, just kind of rely on the guy behind you".

One person who is showing signs of getting better this season is Danica Patrick.

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

Patrick now sits 30th in NASCAR standings. In all nine of the races in which he did finish within the top 10, he finished with positive position differential points on DraftKings.

Following the qualifying round at the Michigan International Speedway, Fantasy NASCAR Expert Brian Polking points out who to target on DraftKings for the FireKeepers Casino 400! Michigan International Speedway has been one of his best tracks.

Hylton appreciates the care Jones gives his race auto, which finished 20th in the Corrigan Oil 200. Truex, now five points back, has 10 stage victories this year. Last week Ryan Blaney with minimal place differential value won the race and was around 5% owned in tournaments. So winning the race Sunday felt special for Larson, even though it appeared it was a race many had penciled him in to win after the drop of the green flag. But the Wood Brothers had not taken an event since Trevor Bayne at the 2011 Daytona 500. He will also provide some place differential value this week starting 12th and is now fastest in final practice.

Truex got back up to sixth by the finish. His biggest competition came in the form of Martin Truex Jr. for most of the day. He beat Elliott in last June's race at MIS. "I've said it before and continued to say that when the fire does go out, I will step down", the driver of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet said. He has seven Top 10s in his last ten starts at MI, so he can deliver a solid score on his finishing position alone. He went on to win the championship. Through 14 races, Larson has led 616 laps, almost doubling his total from all of 2016. Truex's fast lap was at 202.117 miles per hour. Keselowski also swept the stages. The 2015 Cup champion nosed ahead, but Larson stayed alongside Busch then side-drafted him entering Turn 1 where he then powered into the lead. Elliott Sadler trails Allgaier 409-408.

CAMPING WORLD TRUCKDRIVIN' FOR LINEMEN 200Site: Madison, Illinois. Track: Gateway Motorsports Park (oval, 1.25 miles).

Full-time drivers who have run every race this season without leading a single lap: David Ragan, Matt DiBenedetto, and Jeffrey Earnhardt. Last year: Christopher Bell won after starting ninth.

Larson was strongest on a few late restarts, holding off the likes of runner-up Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin.

"The strategy has played out differently from track to track, depending on the length of the race track and the length of the race", Miller said. The Cup Series has just 37 entries this weekend, the smallest field since Martinsville in September 1996. "I thought Trucks and XFINITY were wild, but there are more wild by far".
