Ford Racing Did You Know?... Michigan 2 Edition


DID YOU KNOW? … Ford Racing has won more NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Michigan International Speedway than any other manufacturer with 34. NOTE: Mercury has 12 wins, giving Ford Motor Company more than half of the overall victories at the speedway (46-of-89, 52%).

DID YOU KNOW? … Ford Racing won the inaugural Michigan International Speedway Manufacturer’s trophy last year after Joey Logano won August’s Pure Michigan 400.

DID YOU KNOW? … The Ford brand has won at least one NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway in 25 of the last 30 years, including eight season sweeps (1985, ’86, ’91, ’94, ’96, ’97, 2002, ’13).

DID YOU KNOW? … Bill Elliott is the only driver to win four straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Michigan International Speedway, sweeping both events in 1985 and ’86.

DID YOU KNOW? … Cale Yarborough won the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway in 1969, driving a Mercury for the Wood Brothers. Yarbrough, David Pearson, and Bobby Allison combined to win 12 of the first 15 races at the track in either a Mercury or Ford. Pearson won eight times (1F-7M) while Allison and Yarborough won twice each in Mercury’s.

DID YOU KNOW? … When Greg Biffle won last year’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway in June it represented the 1,000th NASCAR victory for Ford Racing in the top three touring series combined (NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR Nationwide, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series).

DID YOU KNOW? … Ford’s 34 all-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins at Michigan International Speedway have come from 13 different drivers: Bill Elliott (7), Mark Martin (4), Dale Jarrett (4), Greg Biffle (4), Davey Allison (3), Rusty Wallace (3), Matt Kenseth (2), Carl Edwards (2), David Pearson (1), Geoffrey Bodine (1), Ernie Irvan (1), Kurt Busch (1), Joey Logano (1)

DID YOU KNOW? … Dale Jarrett won the second Michigan NASCAR Sprint Cup race three times in his career, including his first series victory while driving for the Wood Brothers. The ironic part about all three of those wins is that each came on August 18 (1991, 1996 and 2002). The latter two victories came with Robert Yates Racing.
