Northland High School grad Trey Burke has been playing quite well as a true freshman for #20 Michigan.

In Tuesday night’s win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, the Columbus, Ohio native scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half as the Wolverines used an early 19-point run to a 63-50 win.

Burke, added six rebounds and seven assists and was 3 of 5 from three-point land.

The 8-2 Wolverines received 16 points from Evan Smotrycz.

The Golden Lions, who received 23 points from Lazabian Jackson, fall to 1-6.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff is on sort of a long road trip like the Blue Brothers, as their first home game isn’t until January 14.

Chicagoland Speedway combines with banking and good grip to produce high speeds on a D-shaped asphalt 1.5-mile tri-oval. The distance is 400.5 miles which is broken down into 267 laps.

The 75,000 seat racetrack has a new Skyline Terrace, a corporate hospitality option with oversized spots.

In 2008, Kyle Busch became the first driver to win a Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway from the pole. Kevin Harvick won from the 32nd starting spot in 2002. Chicagoland became the 10th Sprint Cup track to have night racing. All three touring series events are run under the lights.

Recapping the 2009 400, Mark Martin dominated 195 of the 267 laps and pulled away from Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne, Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin on a late-race restart. Jimmie Johnson (58) was the only other driver to lead more than 10 laps and finished eighth behind pole-sitter Brian Vickers.

Kevin Harvick (2000, 2001) and Tony Stewart (2004, 2007) are two-time winners at Chicagoland.

Jeff Gordon will make his 600th Cup start at Chicagoland Speedeway.

Kevin Harvick has a 210-point lead over Jeff Gordon with eight races left before the Cup Chase.

Fifth-place Denny Hamlin leads the series with 5 wins.


Jamie McMurray has won the pole position for Saturday night’s race at Chicagoland Speedway.

This is the third pole of the season and sixth of his career for McMurray, who won the Daytona 500 in February but has been struggling recently. McMurray turned a lap of 183.542 mph (295.382 kph) in his Chevrolet.
