Larson outlasts Elliott at Michigan again

NASCAR: Kyle Larson holds off Chase Elliott to win at Michigan

NASCAR: Kyle Larson holds off Chase Elliott to win at Michigan

Larson won the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway Sunday afternoon.

Larson started from the pole, led the most laps and was able to hold the lead throughout three restarts over the last 20 laps to give himself a Father's Day present. He slipped by two champions, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick, to win Pocono last weekend and raise his NASCAR profile. He will start 11th.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was one of the other drivers who expressed frustration on social media after the race, despite a bounce-back performance that earned him a top-10 finish.

The driver and his wife, Brittany, tweeted after the race that they were expecting their first baby.

Here are two drivers that are hot starts for Sunday's DraftKings contests.

It was a time and speed of 37.222 seconds, 193.434 miles per hour that earned Keselowski his fifth top-10 start of the season. We had a little bit of a hiccup on the first lap and made some adjustments and got the most out of the second and third sessions.

"Right now the weekend (race) program is so streamlined that you don't have time to experiment". Last race: Bell won in Texas despite starting 21st, by far the furthest back of any victor this season. He won by 0.993 seconds. His ownership is going to be through the roof.

He won the first two 60-lap stages, and he likely had the strongest vehicle in the race. No one doubts Chip Ganassi or Furniture Row, but they certainly don't get the same attention as teams such as Hendrick Motorsports or Team Penske, whose drivers populate much of the top-10.

The third-place finish boosted Logano to 10th in the series standings, 242 points behind series leader and MI victor Kyle Larson.

Larson posted a lap of 202.156 miles per hour in his No. 42 Chevrolet.

In his rookie season, Chase Elliott did everything but win here at MI finishing runner-up both times and leading a total of 66 laps.

Wallace was having a quietly successful day before getting caught up in a wreck that sent Daniel Suarez and Danica Patrick crashing on the backstretch following a restart with 10 laps remaining.

"Without a shadow of a doubt our No. 78 Auto-Owners Insurance Toyota was the best vehicle out there, but inside-lane restarts at the end just killed us", said Truex after finishing sixth.

I do think Chase Elliott will be strong this weekend.

Larson beat Truex off pit road between the first two stages to retake the lead for the start of stage two.

The ideal scenario would have been Bowyer starting in the back of the pack, but he did the exact opposite, qualifying third. At the very least, he should finish in the Top 20 and flirt with 30 fantasy points.

Bowyer is priced at a ridiculously low price of $6,800 on DraftKings. He beat Elliott in last June's race at MIS. If he just stays out of trouble, he will deliver a decent score for the price. He will also provide some place differential value this week starting 12th and is now fastest in final practice. He has a 28.8 average finish over the last six races here, gaining an average of 8.9 spots per race.

"He would have had to have made a bobble for me to get to him", Elliott said about the final five laps.
