Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again

Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again

“So, yeah, it’s an exciting weekend, and hopefully we can keep it going”.

Chase Elliott, last year’s Rookie of the Year, was poised for a breakout season.

That’s a task he has proven he can handle at Michigan International Speedway. Right now the focus is on Sunday and hopefully we’ll have two good practices in race trim tomorrow.

“We’re finishing near 15th race to race, which is where we expect to be”. We are very honest about that.

In the meantime, his objective is to drive the red, No. 48 Ford competitively but not foolishly.

“When I was sitting in 20th I didn’t think I had a shot at all”, he said.

“They’re both a lot of fun”. “Our race cars have been a lot faster”, Larson said. He runs what he’s got.

“We’ve been so close to so many other wins”, the 24-year-old Larson said. “It stinks when you have to race that way”. Tony Stewart was the most vocal critic of the sanctioning body after the event, understandable, considering that he lost three Stewart-Haas Racing entries to the crashes that followed the questionable late race caution.

An extra engine and the resources to purchase additional tires would help, too, Jones added.

“This is a decent starting spot for us for Sunday and MI is not one of our best tracks or favorite tracks, but we try to get it better here each and every time and right now I feel pretty good about it”, Busch said.

The next-closest driver is Jamie McMurray, who’s a whopping 190 points behind Larson.

“I think I’ve probably grown a little bit as a driver”. “I’d say I was more aggressive than Brad, but that was a different deal then”. He won by 0.993 seconds in his No. 42 Chevrolet. Truex has 10 stage victories this year.

XFINITYSite: Brooklyn, Michigan Schedule: Friday, practice, 12:30 p.m., (FS2), practice, 3 p.m., (FS2); Saturday, qualifying, 10 a.m., (FS2), race, 1:30 p.m., FS1.

Larson took over the series points lead over Martin Truex Jr., who finished sixth. Next race: Toyota/Save Mart 350, June 25, Sonoma Raceway, Sonoma, California.

“But if we can’t identify what it is exactly, and it could pose something unsafe, then we’ll usually, or nearly always, err on the side of caution and safety and put the caution out…” It will be the third consecutive front-row start for Truex. Leading 138 laps previous year in a dominating performance, Team Penske as a whole has the horsepower to pull a repeat once again. Then he hinted that handling is an issue.

“Yeah, you have no idea how good this feels”, Logano said. “We have changed every spring we can change in these things”. “I’m not sure we had a third-place auto today, but the team executed like they needed to”.

“I always wanted to go somewhere else, be somewhere else, be doing something other than what I was doing just trying to advance my career“. “I don’t have any framework now on a timeline”. “Just inside lane restarts at the end killed us, so it just stinks when you have to race like that, you know?” “I always enjoy coming here and ya know to get a win with Cars 3 on the vehicle, my son is a big Lightning McQueen fan so he was uh excited about this race for the last couple weeks ’cause he knew what was coming”. The Rochester Hills native went 193.149 miles per hour in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford. Elliott Sadler trails Allgaier 409-408. Qualifying will precede the race Saturday.
