Can Six Time Turn Things Around?

Michigan International Speedway was repaved before the 2012 season, so we now have a solid 5 races to look at when making our picks this weekend. We were here back June and that’s the race I’ll be focusing on the most. Horsepower is important here because Michigan is such a big, wide track, so that favors teams like Hendrick and Penske, who have been fast all year. Also fuel mileage comes into play here a lot, opening up the door for sleeping options on fantasy teams. This also favors guys like Keselowski and Logano who have gotten great fuel mileage all season long. Finally, tires don’t wear as much here at Michigan because of the repave, so we should see plenty of two-tires stops and strategy calls by the guys on the pit box Sunday.
