NASCAR RACE #17 PREVIEW: Today, Michigan International Speedway, 1 PM on TNT

The NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit pays a visit to the Midwest Sunday (today) for the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Race time on the TNT Network is 1 p.m.

Brooklyn, Michigan is located in the scenic Irish Hills area of Southwestern Michigan. The 2000 U.S. Census had the town’s population at 1,176 people. The villagae was founded in 1832 by Calvin Swain who named it Swainsville but the town council changed the name to Brooklyn in 1836.

The 400 mile race is 200 laps on the 2-mile race track.

Located on a 1,400-acre site, the wide, saucer-shaped oval surface allows the drivers to choose their grooves, which is a combination of balance, using downforce and grip. The drivers can run low, high or in the middle and it’s easy to pass.

The top drivers at MIS when it comes to winning includes: Bill Elliott with 7, Mark Martin with 5 and there are four drivers with two wins each, Greg Biffle, Jeff Gordon, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards.

In reviewing the 2010 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 race, Denny Hamlin was very dominant, opening up a lead of nine seconds before a caution flag came out due to debris on lap 182. Hamlin led the race for 123 of the 200 laps to beat out Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch.

Kenseth wins Nationwide race at Charlotte Motor Speedway

 

Matt Kenseth was asked to fill-in for Trevor Bayne, who has been sidelined with an inflammatory condition in the Nationwide Series. Only one problem, Kenseth had never driven the new car designed for the series.

No problem at all for Kenseth as he passed teammate Carl Edwards with laps to go and hung on to win the 300-mile race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.

Kenseth won for the second time in the Cup series on Dover’s high-banked, 1-mile concrete track.

Kyle Busch’s pit strategy late in the Nationwide race at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, allowed him to take the lead and hold off Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick to win the race.

Edwards and Harvick traded leads for most of the 150-lap race before deciding to get four tires on their final pit stop with less than 20 laps left.

Busch, however, waited until only 13 laps to go, and decided to get two tires, putting him ahead after leaving pit road.

Busch survived a final-lap bump into the wall, to win for the fifth time in his past six races at Fontana.

Busch, one of NASCAR’S controversial and volatile drivers, won at Bristol last week, has won three of five Nationwide races and has 46 wins in his career, two behind Mark Martin on the all-time list.
