Kyle Busch calls Brad Keselowski a moron for his accusations against Toyota

Keselowski wins pole for Pure Michigan 400

Keselowski wins pole for Pure Michigan 400

"I ran a half a second faster today in practice than I did in qualifying yesterday". As you can see it is very close at the top with four drivers within a 1.7 average finish differential.

Larson won the Pure Michigan 400 past year and is also the victor of the 2017 NASCAR season's first trip to Michigan International Speedway, the FireKeepers Casino 400.

Get an close-up look at the No. 8 Chevy Camaro that NASCAR star Jimmie Johnson drove to the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit on August 10, 2017. Are they excited for this weekend's Pure Michigan 400? He's come close to winning this season, including an unlikely second place finish on the road course last week, and his MI track record is pretty good as well with three victories and fourteen top five finishes.

Chip Ganassi Racing voiced its concerns about Larson racing twice in one weekend but ultimately gave the 25-year-old the OK to do it.

"I think it's been a progressive improvement in my team and myself as well", Suarez said.

Larson said it was his understanding that the flight to the event in Iowa is just a little over an hour, and he insisted he'll get enough rest before Sunday, when he'll try to cap off his weekend in the spotlight with another victory at MI.

"My morning on Sunday, I don't even do anything until 11 a.m., so I'll still be able to get plenty of sleep and be ready for Sunday". "I know my fans really appreciate it, all my sprint vehicle fans and NASCAR fans". He also won at MI last August. "It's been a fun track", Earnhardt Jr. said.

Future Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski (203.097 mph) took advantage of Blaney's mistake and grabbed the Pole Award for the race at his home track for the first time in his career. Elliott is qualified for the playoffs by points at the moment but is by no means safe as there are a lot of good drivers still searching for their first victory this season.

Logano sits in 18th place and 95 points out of playoff contention.

However, Larson's been in a funk since mid-July with three straight finishes outside of the top 23.

"We have had probably more bad luck than bad runs", Larson said. Larson and Kevin Harvick have started first three times.

The regular season is winding down fast and we are now just four races away from the Playoffs.
