Kyle Larson hangs on to win at Michigan

NASCAR: Kyle Larson survives wild finish, wins FireKepers Casino 400 at MIS

He was just the latest to fall victim to Johnson, who got the better of Larson on an overtime restart to take the win despite Larson having the faster auto.

Larson started from the pole, led 96 of the 200 laps and won a five-lap shootout to give himself a Father's Day present.

Logano was also smiling after the race, ending a streak of five races outside the top 20 with a third-place result. Despite sitting 12th in the regular-season standings, the number of race winners this season may push Bowyer out of the playoffs.

"Restarting here at MI is so different than restarting at Dover", Larson said in the post-race. "All-in-all, it's a good season so far and we'll continue to keep building on what we've got". While Elliott fought for the second position, Kyle Larson ran away with the win. For us to withstand a few restarts there with some tough competitors there was pretty important. "We had a couple of opportunities to get the lead", Elliott said. Unlike the outside lane we just couldn't get going each time we restarted in the inside lane.

Joey Logano finished third in the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford for Team Penske. "So if you don't manage your temperatures when the yellow comes out, you're going to pay the price when they throw the green flag".

Drivers did not even complete a lap until the next caution, a multi-car wreck on the backstretch of the two-mile track that sent Danica Patrick and Daniel Suarez for a wild ride.

After leading 241 of the first 403 laps, Larson was beaten by Johnson on the final restart, but from that disappointment grew a determination to improve that aspect of his performance. He won by 0.993 seconds in his No. 42 Chevrolet.

Even though Larson led the most laps, he said he thought he had the third or fourth-best auto - behind Martin Truex Jr. and Busch.

Truex continued is dominance of stage racing, sweeping the first two at MI. Nobody else has more than four.

According to Kumar, Noida police received a PCR call around 4 am today morning about the woman lying by the road. On 29 May, Gurugram witnessed another atrocity when a woman was gangraped and her child murdered .

Matt Kenseth: If any of the drivers on the bubble win their first race of the season soon, Kenseth would be mathematically out.

Hamlin finished fourth, and Jamie McMurray was fifth. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson finished eighth through 10th. It marked his second consecutive victory at Michigan International Speedway. "Fontana's rough and bumpy, and it's [a] wore-out surface - you have to really, really take care of your tires and move around, find different lanes that work". But no matter how fast they go, we like to see a lot of passing, too. His last points win came in July 2016.

Kevin Harvick: There is no question that Harvick is Stewart-Haas Racing's top driver, and with nine top-10 finishes this season, it's pretty safe to say he's going to make the playoffs.

"I'm not sure we had a third-place vehicle today, but the team executed like they needed to get the Shell-Pennzoil Ford into the top three".

The ending was just as compelling.

Denver based Furniture Row Racing battled hard in Sunday's FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

"We went so low down the back straightaway that there was dust and stuff flying off the tires", Hamlin said.

It wasn't Elliott's coveted first career Cup win, but second place was the latest example of how the sophomore driver has turned things around in recent weekends.
