While Denny Hamlin may have ultimately won at Michigan on Sunday, the first half of the race was dominated by the one-man Dodge band of Kurt Busch.
Denny Hamlin got a huge jump on the final restart, then drove off into the Michigan sunset like the rest of the field was on tricycles.
Surprise, surprise. Joey Logano won the pole. Logano won Saturday night’s (June 12) Nationwide Series race at Kentucky. And Cup regulars finished 1-2-3.
Kevin Harvick held court in the media center at Michigan and cleared the air on how things got to this point with 20-year old Joey Logano.
The boys gave us plenty to discuss this week at Pocono, so let’s get to it.
Welcome to the Frontstretch Fantasy Insider, the column that puts your virtual racing team in position to win. We break down who rules the roost at Michigan.
