Next Stop, Michigan International Speedway

Next stop, Michigan International Speedway for Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400, the fifteenth race of the 2016 Sprint Cup Series. Kurt Busch is the defending winner and also the most recent Cup Series race winner, breaking into the 2016 win column just four days ago with a victory in the rain-delayed Axalta 400 at Pocono.

If he finishes first again come Sunday, Busch would become the first driver since Denny Hamlin in 2010 and 2011 with back-to- back wins in Michigan’s June race. In recent years, qualifying has become a key part of the weekend at M-I- S. Four of the last five winning drivers have started from the first four rows including three pole winners: Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Joey Logano.
