Kevin Harvick Consumers Energy 400 at MI

Harvick, the Bakersfield, California native, has one Cup Series win to his credit at MI when he finished 1.731 seconds ahead of runner-up Denny Hamlin in August 2010.

One person in particular who noticed?

(21) Chase Elliott, Chevrolet, 200.

Though he started the season with a clear speed advantage, Larson has seen the Hendrick organization close the gap.

The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series heads to the fast track of Michigan International Speedway for the running of the Consumers Energy 400 on Sunday. "The motivation is to not let things slip through the crack, and they're covering all the details, and especially my group of guys that we're going on our fifth year together. And then when you start to get through the weekend, you have to get the most out of what you have".

Fuel was lurking as a potential issue for some drivers, but you wouldn't expect Truex to be one of them. I feel like we're getting our stuff better every week. He last swept both stages and won at Las Vegas and Dover.

"We're starting to turn back the other way and be pretty fast again", Hamlin said.

Four cars were sent to the back of the 40-car pack for the start of the race. "I could throw you something out there, but it would just be a lob, right?" It's all about just progressing and getting better. I'm so proud of the guys for having a vehicle capable of doing that.

The math is as simple as 5-3-2.

Those playoff points carry over in each round of the playoffs, meaning the Big 3 drivers are well on their way to NASCAR's Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

There are now three playoff spots available on points, with Grant Enfinger, Stewart Friesen and two-time series champion Matt Crafton now in position to claim them. The Michigan Heritage is a recognition and celebration of the automobile and its importance to the race track and the manufacturers competing in NASCAR.

Despite battling with Kelly for the No. 2 quarterback job, Lynch indicated after the game that he's proud of his teammate. In five career games (four starts), he's 1-3 with just 792 passing yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.

Liverpool now have a full eight days to recover until their second league game of the season against Crystal Palace on August 20. Salah's goal featured an important contribution from new signing Naby Keita , while Guinea's Keita was excellent throughout.

Chances are, though, one of the series' top three drivers will finish first.

Enfinger is in the most enviable position.

The regular season final arrives the next week, with it being held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time.

Nor is Enfinger taking anything for granted.

"It's great for our foundation to be a part of it and the exposure and things that, that come with it for us are great", Harvick said. "We just couldn't catch a break all day". So that's kind of on us to get a result.

Ultimately, Enfinger will secure a playoff spot if he stays ahead of both Friesen and Crafton in the standings - no matter what else happens.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series had two on-track activities yesterday: a practice session and qualifying.

"The last three weeks we've had some big struggles", Keselowski said. That's understandable. MI in particular is one of Menard's best tracks. His lead did not last long as Kyle Busch quickly passed him for the spot.

(1) Denny Hamlin, Toyota, 200.

Stage Two: #48 Jimmie Johnson was able to lead some laps at the beginning of the second stage, along with Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick, there was also a pair of spins by Erik Jones and #31 Ryan Newman which each brought out the yellow. Kyle Busch found himself in a tight battle with Ryan Blaney for P2 for a bit but was able to get in front and start on the task of tracking down the 4.

Toyota drivers have won 11 races and Ford has nine first-place finishes.
