WEEKEND WINNERS … KYLE LARSON, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series … MICHAEL McDOWELL,
X-FINITY Series … and BRETT MOFFITT, Camping World Truck Series …

PURE MICHIGAN 400: Kyle Larson got the best of rookie Chase Elliott on the day’s final restart Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, leading the last ten laps to record his first career Sprint Cup victory. Larson was ready to pounce when the green flag flew for the final time while Elliott briefly spun his tires, opening the door for Larson to drive his Number-42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet straight into Gatorade Victory Lane. The winning margin over Elliott was one-point-four seconds. Brad Keselowski, the only Michigan driver in the forty-car field, finished third. But his Number-2 Team Penske Ford failed post-race inspection, with any penalties likely to be announced at mid-week. Rookie Ryan Blaney grabbed fourth place with Kevin Harvick completing the top five. Pole sitter Joey Logano led twenty-four laps and finished tenth in his bid for a season sweep on the two-mile Irish Hills oval after winning in June … Larson led a race-high forty-one laps in helping to give Chevrolet a one-two sweep. Elliott drove his Number-88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet to second-place finishes in both Sprint Cup Series events at M-I-S in 2016. Larson’s first Cup Series win comes in his ninety-ninth start and gives team owner Chip Ganassi just his second Michigan victory. The first one came fifteen years ago with Sterling Marlin behind the wheel … Larson’s victory capped an historic weekend for NASCAR during which first-time winners celebrated in each of the sanctioning body’s three national series: Brett Moffitt in the Camping World Truck Series, Michael McDowell (X-FINITY) and then Larson on Sunday in Michigan.

RACE NOTES …
With a thirty-fifth-place finish in Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400, rookie Chris Buescher is clinging to a Chase berth with just two weeks remaining in the regular season. After winning earlier this month at Pocono, he’ll earn a spot on The Chase Grid providing he remains in the top thirty. Entering next weekend’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, Buescher is thirtieth in the standings – seven points ahead of David Ragan, who finished six spots in front of Buescher on Sunday … Kyle Larson’s win yesterday is the first Cup Series victory for Chip Ganassi Racing since October 2013.

MICHAEL McDOWELL WINS ROAD AMERICA 180 X-FINITY SERIES RACE
Michael McDowell led a race-high twenty-four laps on Saturday, including the final twenty, to claim his first career victory and extend Richard Childress Racing’s winning streak to three years on Road America’s sprawling four-mile circuit. McDowell, who started second, beat runner-up … and teammate … Brendan Gaughan to the checkered flag by a half-second – joining Gaughan and Paul Menard as R-C-R race winners at Road America since 2014. Rookie Brennan Poole came home in third place with Daniel Suarez and Ryan Reed completing the top five. Pole sitter Alex Tagliani led seventeen laps but was slowed after contact with McDowell early in the second half of the race, settling for seventh place … Regular-season points leader Elliott Sadler finished eighth and carries a forty-seven-point advantage over Suarez into the next race next weekend at Darlington … Saturday’s race included just six lead changes among four drivers: Tagliani, Gaughan, McDowell and rookie Erik Jones.

BRETT MOFFITT WINS CAREERS FOR VETERANS 200 TRUCK SERIES RACE
Brett Moffitt led just one lap of Saturday’s race at Michigan International Speedway, but it was the one that counted most. He powered past points leader William Byron off Turn-2 on the final trip around the two-mile oval and kept his Number-11 Red Horse Racing Toyota in front the rest of the way – beating teammate Timothy Peters to the finish by ninety-eight one-thousandths of a second. Daniel Hemric took third place and Byron held on for fourth, with Cameron Hayley completing the top five. Pole sitter John Wes Townley failed to lead a lap and finished twelfth in the thirty-one-truck field … Peters led a race-high forty-two laps en route to his second-place finish, which came just two days before his 36th birthday.
