The Likely Suspects: I'll be focusing on these masters of Michigan: Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne.  

My 2 Cents: My no-brainer pick this week is a tie between Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano. My next picks are Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott and Kasey Kahne. I will complete my team with Ty Dillon and Michael McDowell.  

My Final Four: Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson and Ty Dillon.

Points to Ponder:
  • Kasey Kahne and Joey Logano lead all active drivers in poles at Michigan with three each.
  • Kurt Busch and Matt Kenseth lead all active MENCS drivers in wins with three each.
  • Roush Fenway Racing has the most wins at Michigan in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series with 13.
  • The top-six winning MENCS organizations at Michigan are Roush Fenway Racing (13), Wood Brothers Racing (11), plus Joe Gibbs Racing, Hendrick Motorsports and Team Penske with eight wins each.
  • Eight different manufacturers have won in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Michigan, led by Ford with 35 victories.
  • The Coors Light pole position is the most proficient starting position in the field, producing more winners (20) than any other starting spot at MIS.  
  • Three-quarters (71 of the 95) Monster Energy NASCAR Cup races at Michigan have been won from a top-10 starting position.
