NASCAR at Michigan: TV schedule, standings, qualifying drivers for Consumers Energy 400Sporting News — (Thomas Lott)
NASCAR heads back to Michigan and the two-mile D-Shaped oval where speed rules at the Consumers Energy 400.
Kyle Larson has been the benefactor of that for the last few years having won three of the last four times at Michigan International Speedway, but it was Clint Bowyer who came away with the victory earlier this season in a rain-shortened event in June.
Larson had his three-race win streak broken at the event, but it's hard to ignore four top-3 finishes in his last five races at possibly the fastest track in all of NASCAR.
However, Chase Elliott has really been finding his way lately after locking up his first career win Sunday at Watkins Glen, and with the way the Big 3 have driven all season long, Sunday's race should be a great one.
