Michigan: Three To Watch
This weekend, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads to Michigan International Speedway, one of the biggest and fastest non-restrictor plate tracks on the schedule. Like many of the cars built in the state's biggest city, this track is made for horsepower and speed. Unlike some tracks more tailored toward the driver, this track is all about rolling off with the fastest car and taking it to victory lane.
Here are three drivers to keep an eye on this Sunday:
Green Flag: Martin Truex Jr.
You can pretty much throw out the past performance statistics on Truex right now. That's what happens when a driver finishes with 13 top-10s in 14 races. He's led 454 laps across the last four races, earning two points for most laps led in all four events. There's no reason he can't keep up the performance this week at Michigan.
Yellow Flag: Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Junior is known for his wins at Michigan because they both came after long winless droughts, but those are the only two wins he's had at the track in 31 starts. He's been maddeningly inconsistent this year, earning an impressive seven top-fives in 14 races, but earning just one other top-10 in the other seven. He should have a good week, "should" being the operative term.
Red Flag: Greg Biffle
He has the most wins at Michigan of any active driver with four, but this season has been a struggle for him and Roush Fenway Racing as a whole. He has just two top-10s, eight laps led, and an average finish of 19.6 on the season. Headed to a track that puts so much emphasis on car speed, it's hard to bank on a driver who hasn't had that speed under him this season.
