NASCAR at Michigan 2016: Preview, Prediction for the Pure Michigan 400

And then there were three.

Three races remain in the regular season before the Chase for the Sprint Cup. The series heads back to Michigan International Speedway for the Pure Michigan 400—400 laps and 200 miles of low downforce racing.

This didn’t result in a great race two months ago. Joey Logano dominated, leading 138 of the 200 laps.

Perhaps the race was best remembered for how two winless drivers—Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson—dueled for second place. Elliott edged Larson while Logano, presumably, snickered like an old-timey bank robber from a silent movie, all the while twirling an invisible mustache on his way to Victory Lane.

So, yes, three weeks remain, and many drivers are pinned into a corner, desperate for access to the playoffs.

Where will they stand? That, and more, in this week’s preview and prediction from Michigan.
