Chip Ganassi Racing enters Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race looking good again. See, Michigan has always been a strong track for Chip Ganassi Racing and they come to the Irish Hill hot. They’ve won three of the last six races on the 2-mile oval overall. That’s why that combined with them running well over the last few weeks that I can see one of their drivers earning the win in Sunday’s race at the Michigan International Speedway.
Kyle Larson enters Sunday’s race with five top 10 finishes in his last seven starts on the season including three of which being top five results in his No. 42 Chevrolet. He’s won at Michigan three times to go along with a third place finish as well. Since then though, he was only 28th, 13th and 14th respectively. But, with how well he’s running on the season again, I expect Larson to be a contender on Sunday.
Same for his teammate Kurt Busch. He won at Kentucky in July. He finished runner-up at Michigan in June for his third straight top six finishes on the Irish Hills race track. Since his win in 2015, he’s finished worse than 12th just once there.
This could be a strong week for them.
