Welcome to today's NASCAR race chat. Green flag approximately 1:16 p.m. ET.
Pete Pistone is on MRN radio duty during today's race, so I'm going solo today.
Hey mikeyfan, all is well. How about yourself?
I don't know. Might be a new thing NASCAR is trying out.
I'm picking Carl Edwards for the win today. Looks to have a good car and needs a victory badly. #nascar
Kyle Busch is the defending event champion, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. is seeking the season sweep at Michigan. #nascar
Love the starting command by Kid Rock. #nascar
DYK? No driver has swept at Michigan since Bobby Labonte in 1995. #nascar
Though there are several drivers that won back-to-back races at the track, but spanning the calendar. #nascar
BTW, Edwards leads all drivers with an avg. finish of 8.4 in 16 starts at Michigan. #nascar
Mark Martin leads all active drivers with 5 wins at Michigan. Most recently 2009. #nascar
Races at Michigan have gone caution free 3 times. Most recently 1999. #nascar
Worst starting position of a race winner at Michigan is 32nd (for Martin's 2009 win). #nascar
