Last finish
1.Jimmie Johnson3↑11stJohnson has won three of the last four races. That seventh championship might just be around the corner for the No. 48 team.
2.Kevin Harvick2↑12ndThis might have been Harvick's race if not for some late pit issues once again.
3.Jeff Gordon1↑16thGordon remains the points leader with a solid top-10 run.
4.Dale Earnhardt Jr.2↓17thPit Strategy landed Earnhardt Jr. in the top-10. If things fell the other way he might have been contending for consecutive wins.
5.Brad Keselowski1---3rdKeselowski has come close to winning so many Michigan races, he just didn't have enough car on Sunday.
6.Kyle Larson0↑38thLarson wrecked and got caught speeding on pit road and passed a ton of cars to finish with another top-10.
7.Joey Logano2↑19thLogano will gladly take this finish over what happened on Saturday to him.
8.Matt Kenseth0↓214thBack-to-back sub par performances for Kenseth and the No. 20 crew. The good news is that they are so high in the points that the chase is still very much in sight.
9.Clint Bowyer0↑210thBowyer with another solid run. The chase is coming though and the No. 15 team needs a win!
Tony Stewart0↑311thNice finish for Stewart but I think he had a top-10 worthy car this week.
11.Carl Edwards1↓123rdEdwards was lapped early in the race and was never really able to recover.
12.Denny Hamlin1↓529thHamlin had a long and rough day, no other way to really say it.
13.Kurt Busch1↑213th13th is better than 30th. Top-15 finishes are all that Busch needs to stay in the top-30 in points.
14.Paul Menard0N/A4thGreat weekend for Menard, he won the Nationwide race and had a top-five in the Cup race.
15.Kasey Kahne0N/A5thKahne fans rejoiced as their driver led this race. Solid top-five for the No. 5 team.
