Who wins on the fast track at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday? The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup rolls on with the FireKeepers Casino 400 following a thrilling finish in Saturday’s Xfinity Series Cup race. Denny Hamlin passed rookie William Byron on the last lap to win his second Xfinity Series race at MIS in the closest finish (0.012 seconds) in track history. 

After an eventful weekend in Pocono, some drivers are looking to get back on track. One such driver is Kyle Busch, who continued his struggles at the Tricky Triangle last weekend. Busch is hoping to redeem himself at MIS, and he’ll have to do so without his crew chief once again, who is serving the second of his four race suspension.

The 400-mile course will be hosting returning champion Joey Logano. Busch and Kevin Harvick are both seeking their first wins of the season in a season that’s been dominated by young drivers. Dale Earnhardt Jr. looks to rebound from a tough week at Pocono as he also seeks his first win of the season and third at Michigan, while Jimmie Johnson will be starting from the last spot — in his backup car — after a practice crash
