NASCAR at MIS: Fiery wrecks, fabulous finishes through the years

Bubba Wallace takes 'NASCAR Race Hub' behind the scenes for Cup Series debut

Kyle Larson is once again atop the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series after Larson won Sunday's FireKeepers Casino 400 at MI. Larson would pass Kyle Busch with 15 laps to go, and hang on through a couple late restarts to secure the win.

At this point, its fair to say the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings are a two-horse race.

Kyle Larson collected his second Cup victory of the season Sunday when he won at MI.

Chase Elliott of Hendrick Motorsports finished second while Joey Logano of Team Penske was third.

Larson took over the series points lead over Martin Truex Jr., who finished sixth.

Hedges exits game after home-plate collision with Rizzo
On Monday , Chicago climbed back over that mark with a 3-2 win against San Diego at Wrigley Field that upped its mark to 35-34. In a rally Monday , the hots bats of Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras ignited the recently resurgent Cubs offense.

"Yeah, just a long day overall", said Jones, a native of Byron, Mich. He's a virtual lock to qualify for the postseason for a second year in a row, and considering the consistency he's exhibited - his 7.9 average finish is a series best - and proficiency on intermediate speedways that make up half the 10-race playoff schedule, putting forth a deep championship run is a distinct possibility. "All in all, it's a good season so far and we'll continue building on what we've got". The three manufacturers in NASCAR's top series had something to crow about Sunday as not a single auto dropped out of the 400-mile race for a mechanical failure. He was just the latest to fall victim to Johnson, who got the better of Larson on an overtime restart to take the win despite Larson having the faster auto.

Maybe it wasn't the thing movies are made of - although Larson sported a "Cars 3" paint scheme created to be similar to the character of Lightning McQueen - but it was something for the memory book. After Larson passed him for the lead on the Lap 186 restart, Busch ultimately faded to seventh at the finish, still searching for his first victory of the season. "So, I'm happy that we could have a solid day and put ourselves in position and kind of rely on some late-race restarts". While there's no doubting Larson's talent, the same can not be said for the perennially underachieving Chip Ganassi-owned team, which before this season struggled to provide its drivers with winning equipment. However, with where he was positioned when he came out of the pits, he was going to start on the inside lane. For his career, Elliott has finished second or third on eight occasions. So winning the race Sunday felt special for Larson, even though it appeared it was a race many had penciled him in to win after the drop of the green flag.

This week's "well, that sucks" award goes to Danica Patrick, who finished dead last on Sunday just because her vehicle was the one that ran out of room. I didn't get squirrelly at all. "William Byron, with years, will gain that, but a guy like Denny Hamlin is able to think through every second of that at 190 miles an hour and know exactly where he needs to be at each second, and that's why we're here today".

It was a disappointing day for Brad Keselowski.

Larson was catching race leader Kyle Busch until there was a caution for debris on lap 179. "Ya know he's learning how to talk and uh, well I mean he talks a lot, he's learning how to put sentences together now so um, so much fun to be around him and he's soaking it all in, it's insane to see how much he has grown each and every day". "He had a heck of a restart and shoved me softly all the way to Turn 1". On the next to last restart, Blaney fell back into the field and got crammed between a number of cars, causing contact that wound up with Patrick sliding across the track and being introduced to a wall. I think I could have gotten to second. Byron, meanwhile, will have to keep trying for his first Xfinity win. He's going to be starting his curve a lot earlier.
