Bowyer wins rain-shortened race at Michigan | Racing

They sit week after week on the starting grid, in prime rides, for high-profile teams and sponsors, each anointed for one reason or another the next great thing in NASCAR. Any driver in the lead might conceivably win if rain intervened. Busch made it back into the top five, Hamlin finished 12th and Jones was 15th. With teams now set to make a return to numerous tracks during the second half of the season, the Chevrolet and Toyota teams must find a way to stop Ford's dominance or find themselves enduring a very long season.

So stardom waits while time marches on and everyone wonders wholl be the first to realize the success and popularity that have been forecast.

"I think of the three things that I like to see at a race, and I think of fast cars, the best race auto drivers and a great finish", Keselowski said.

Ryan Blaney won the first stage of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at MI, prevailing in a one-lap sprint after a caution.

Dillon, in his No. 3 Chevrolet, fought with Hemric's No. 21 on a restart on the 89th lap, but the race went under caution again nearly immediately because of the weather.

That was exactly what took place on Sunday during what tuned out to be the last pit stop of the day.

The bad weather isn't a huge surprise after Saturday's Xfinity race was shortened by rain.

“Its frustrating, ” Jones said. The final scheduled Cup practice later in the day was canceled because of rain.

NASCAR is crowded with young, promising drivers.

She tore into the deep division and animosity which she warned is tearing her party, and the country, apart. Some lawmakers tried to shout him down and accused the government of wanting too much power.

Kyle Larson is still seeking his first victory of the season.

The problem for them is that veteran drivers have shown no inclination to give ground to the likes of Bill Elliotts son, Byrons No. 24 Chevrolet or Bowman, the retired Dale Earnhardt Jr.s replacement. Blaney held on for the Stage 1 win after another restart, with Kyle Larson second in his Chevrolet Camaro, Bowyer third, Harvick fourth, Denny Hamlin fifth in a Toyota Camry, Keselowski sixth and Busch seventh as the Ford Fusions dominated, taking five of the first seven spots.

For Keselowski, earning his first win of the season on home turf would be a ideal way to wipe away the disappointment.

Even though thunderstorms were the overwhelming storyline this past weekend at Michigan International Speedway, the message continued to resonate that Ford Motor Co. continues to convey a very dominant presence in NASCAR's Monster Energy Cup Series.

"A home track means a lot to any race auto driver". Sei Young Kim, who broke the course record Sunday morning when she finished her second round with back-to-back birdies for a 61, had a 70 to finish fourth at 13 under.

The victory by Bowyer was the eighth of the year for Ford in 15 Cup races.

The idea was to create a drafting-like package with slingshot passes, as often is seen at Daytona and Talladega, where the restrictor plates are necessary to keep the cars from going so fast that they get dangerously close to going airborne. He studies the demographics of his followers and has tuned into the sports thirst for ticket buyers. "Our team has been pretty solid every race".

Perhaps young drivers and young fans have in common the need to figure out NASCAR before they can take advantage of what it offers. I know that were doing all we can to put ourselves in that position to make it happen. I thought it was fun. Its definitely possible. Were all with good teams.”.
