Austin Dillon wins rain-shortened race in MI

Getty Images

Clint Bowyer and his crew took a gamble that rain was on the way.

The preceding Xfinity Series qualifying session was also canceled after a rain delay. "It was uncharacteristic for him". I was trying to hold him off. So, yeah, I mean obviously I don't think we are as fast as what we were at this point previous year, but I don't think we are that far off either.

As Stewart-Haas Racing had a one-two-three finish in the race, for the first time ever. It's not, 'I'm loose this week or I'm tight this week.' It's everybody fighting the same things and collectively with all four cars we are having those conversations. "I got down in (Turn) 3 and just had to take his line because that bear was coming". Fellow Ford drivers Paul Menard finished fifth for Wood Brothers Racing, followed by Team Penske's Brad Keselowski, Joe Logano and Ryan Blaney in sixth, seventh and eighth.

How did what went down in the the 15th race of the 2018 NASCAR Cup Series season affect the NASCAR Cup Series Driver Power Rankings? "It's a confidence booster".

Despite placing second, Harvick continued his dominant stretch in 2018 in which he already has five victories. "Our pit crew was solid". Blaney came away with his fourth stage win of the year. Kyle Larson's streak of MI wins ended because during stage two he spun out through the wet grass on the front stretch taring up his vehicle.

"I've been on both sides of this", Harvick said. "That worked the other way at Dover and today it worked out for [Bowyer]".

Park won the 2013 NCAA individual title as a freshman at Southern California and helped the Trojans take the team crown.


"The blue ovals [Ford] were just tough, it wasn't anything about SHR", Busch said. "We had no big mistakes or no big rough moments". He also had to battle back from an uncontrolled tire during a pit stop. "We got about three-quarters of the way down pit road, I was about 70 percent sure", Bugarewicz said.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Scott Dixon led the last 119 laps of Saturday night's IndyCar race at Texas Motor Speedway, winning for the second consecutive weekend and quickly breaking a tie for the third-most career wins in series history. It reminded me of Go Kart racing back in the day. "It's very special to finish 1-2-3".

Seven of the top eight finishers drove a Ford.

Three drivers - Kyle Busch, Jones and Hamlin - had to start the race from the rear of the field after each vehicle was found to have non-compliant splitters during pre-race inspection.

Busch came out in front after the first round of pit stops and adjustments and stayed there even after a Lap 40 restart after a caution came out for a Darrel Wallace Jr. spin.

The introduction of a new model in the series usually comes with a learning curve but the Ford camp is confident that it will be able to continue with the success it is now enjoying because of what Stewart Haas was able to do after it switched from Chevrolet to Ford before last season. The top Chevy driver is Larson, in 10th place. "Everybody back at the shop and everybody who touches these cars has done such a great job this year at SHR".
