Michigan started the season 5-0 with wins over Connecticut, at Notre Dame, Massachusetts, Bowling Green and at Indiana. They could’ve easily lost to Notre Dame, Massachusetts and Indiana, but came through with late rallies to win.

Hamlin accomplished part one of his goal as he captured the pole position for Sunday’s Tums Fast Relief 500 Sprint Cup race on one of NASCAR’s oldest, shortest and trickiest speedways.

Johnson qualified 19th, and Kevin Harvick, who is third in points, will start 36th.
