Larson tops Elliott, Michigan yet again

"We went so low down the back straightaway that there was dust and stuff flying off the tires", Hamlin said. "I lifted the best I could, I guess I just didn't do a good enough job lifting". I won on Mother's Day weekend and that was really, really awesome - my mom was pretty stoked about it. "Overall, you know, didn't stay attached as good as I needed to". Kyle Busch qualified fourth, followed by Denny Hamlin, Pocono victor Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano and Jamie McMurray. When the No. 18 pitted on Lap 111.

"The 78 [of Truex] was by far the class of the field, I thought", Larson said. So, I've really got to thank him a ton. "For us to withstand a few restarts there with some tough competitors there was pretty important", said Larson on the pass for the lead. The win was special as it was a great Father's Day present for himself along with his dad who was at the track.

"So, I'm looking forward to celebrating with him". Let's take a look at five of those most prominent storylines: Junior, Junior, Junior: Although he's known for his success at other race tracks such as Daytona (four wins), Phoenix and Richmond (three wins each) and Talladega (six wins), MIS has played a key role in Junior's Cup career. He had a commanding lead on all drivers with ten stage wins with the second place being Kyle Busch, with four stage wins.

"Little bit disappointed there, but Kyle (Larson) went out late and got us, so it was a good day".

On Sunday, he backed that up with a satisfying fourth-place run in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event at the two-mile track.

The 2-mile MIS oval produced a first-time victor in August 2016 when Kyle Larson took the checkered flag in the No. 42 Chevrolet.

Next came Ryan Blaney, last year's ROTY runner-up who one-upped Elliott by reaching Victory Lane first.

Hamlin was ahead by about three seconds before a late caution for debris, and the restart with nine laps remaining kicked off a wild finish.

Coconut Oil Is Unhealthy According To The American Heart Association
The review of dietary fats shows coconut oil increased the LDL - or "bad" - cholesterol in seven out of seven controlled trials. The dream that coconut oil is a healthier oil has been shattered and a new study advises against using the oil altogether.

"Here, you know you're going fast, but I get more of a sensation at, say, Dover or Bristol on going fast, just because it's bumpy, the straightaways are narrow", he said. Proud of the effort. Elliott was second in both MI races past year, and again this time.

It was a great weekend for "Cars 3" and Kyle Larson.

"Let's see: I was 19, I think I was working at Subway making sandwiches". "I'd like to think so". "He had to go block them and it just ends up kind of disrupting the whole situation when that happens". His lone victory in Cup came on fuel mileage and MIS lends itself to those types of finishes.

They'll be racing in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but as always in the family-oriented sport, their loved ones will be close by.

He follows Scott, 495 races between 1961 and 1973, Willy T. Ribbs, with three starts on the top circuit in 1986, and Bill Lester, who had two starts in 2006.

Truex continued his dominance in stage 2. The trio led 198 of the 200 laps.

"We had a couple of opportunities to get the lead, and unfortunately, it just didn't work out. You get just in a bad spot and there's nothing you can do about it", said Truex after the 400-mile race. Absolutely not. We had tires, all that, and I still couldn't keep up on the last run. Just didn't have track position then, but we made our auto better. Other short odds to win are Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr., who each have 13/2 odds.

He will be joined on the front row by Martin Truex Jr. Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott round out the top five in points as the series heads to Sonoma Raceway next Sunday.
