2014 Michigan: NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

The NASCAR Sprint Cup series has raced 89 times at Michigan International Speedway since their first event in 1969. All-time David Pearson has the most wins with nine - in 29 tries - followed by Cale Yarborough (8 wins/36 races) and Bill Elliott (7 wins/58 races).

Michigan International Speedway was built in 1968 at a distance of 2.0-miles. The D-shaped oval has 18 degree banking in the turns with 12 degree banking on the 3600 foot frontstretch and 5 degree banking on the 2242 foot backstretch. The track surface is relatively new, which has allowed speeds to increase to over 204 mph! When the house is full the grandstands hold a massive 137,243 fans, but the infield has pushed those number over 160,000 in previous years.

Four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon has a nearly 50/50 chance of finishing fifth or higher at MIS. In 42 races, he's finished in the top five 18 times. Unfortunately for Gordon, the great finishes haven't resulted in a dominating record of wins, he has just two and his last win came way back in 2001.

Jeff Gordon certainly could win today, but there always seems to be something that allows him to run well, but not finish the deal.

Another man with an outstanding record at Michigan is Roush-keteer Carl Edwards. Edwards has two wins, nine top fives, and 15 top-ten finishes over his career at Michigan. At Michigan, Carl Edwards is simply phenomenal, yet, his best finish since 2011 was a sixth place run during the second visit in 2012.

Lately, it has been Fords dominating with three straight victories - two by Greg Biffle. Plus Biffle is the only driver with three top-five finishes over the last four races.

So we are going with Greg Biffle to take the win today.

But should Biffle fail to take the trip to Victory Lane, then keep an eye the rest of the field. We've had 15 different drivers in the top-five over the last two years.

So enjoy today's race, it is sure to be another Michigan thriller!
