Larson, Truex take top 2 spots in MI qualifying

Larson, Truex take top 2 spots in MI qualifying

He won by 0.993 seconds.

"We've been so close to so many other wins", he said.

There is no other non-restrictor plate track in NASCAR that is as fast as Michigan International Speedway. He led laps in both races at MI last year, and he led 73 laps earlier this year at the other 2.0-mile oval on the schedule, Auto Club Speedway. "We always seem to have a lot of speed (at Michigan)", Larson, who's second to Martin Truex points, said. That is the most in the history of the series. In 12 starts this season, the driver of the No. 5 Pilot Flying J Chevy has garnered four top 10's. Normally Harvick is among the favorites, but not this week, which I think is a mistake. "I was pretty good in the first round and a little bit tight in the second round". After all, he has a series-leading 7.2 average finish in the last ten starts at MI, and he has six straight Top 10s here.

Allgaier seized the lead in the standings from Sadler after finishing runner-up at the Tricky Triangle.

In six career starts at Michigan, Allgaier has logged one top-five and three top-10 finishes.

"The track has probably widened out since past year", Dillon said. Dillon originally qualified 24th, but now he'll start from the back of the field in Sunday's race. In each of the first two stages, drivers finishing in the top 10 will receive championship points (10 to 1) with the victor receiving one playoff point.

"I'm pumped to get to Michigan", Allgaier siad. He has a pair of second-place finishes and has led 30-plus laps in both starts. That was big for us and we want to keep building on that. The No. 42 auto crossed the green-checkered flag runner up.

"Gateway was a good race for us previous year because we were able to get a win and earn a spot in the [playoffs], but it was kind of circumstances that got us the win", Bell said.

"We just got really loose there in the last round", Harvick said.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won at Talladega, Austin Dilllon at Charlotte and Ryan Blaney at Pocono.

After clocking in second and fourth fastest in the first two rounds, Larson went out in the final round and put down a lap of 202.156 miles per hour to win the pole for the FireKeepers Casino 400. Joey Logano attempts to defend his win in last year's FireKeepers Casino 400. Earnhardt has not reached victory lane since late in 2014. They were the only drivers to lead during the first half of the 200-lap, 400-mile race.

Larson took the lead from Kyle Busch on a restart with 15 laps to go and then jumped to a sizable lead. The best way to follow all the action is to watch NASCAR live. Kyle Busch qualified fourth at 201.523 miles per hour and Denny Hamlin qualified fifth at 201.337 miles per hour.

Hylton finished second in Cup points three times in a career that spanned 1964 through 1993. Grant Enfinger leads second-place Chase Briscoe in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings by four points.
