Michigan International Speedway was repaved in 2012 and thanks to that it is now one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit. It is a 2-mile D-shaped oval, and the second 2-mile track that we’ve visited in 2016. The first was Fontana back in March. The thing about Michigan, though, is that a lot of the same drivers tend to finish up front; five different drivers have finished 10th or better in three of the last four Michigan races. This race last season was shortened because of rain, so keep that in mind when analyzing those race results this weekend. It’s worth noting that two of the last three races here have been won from the pole.
