After last week's drama on the Brickyard's road course, the Cup Series returns to an oval for this weekend's race, the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
Last year, Team Penske's Ryan Blaney captured the checkered flag despite leading just eight of the race's 200 laps. Blaney outpaced Hendrick Motorsports teammates William Byron and Kyle Larson to claim his second win of the 2021 campaign.
One racer who could desperately use a victory Sunday is Kevin Harvick. He has the pedigree to succeed on the track, with five wins at Michigan. Harvick currently is on the outside looking in for a Cup Series playoff spot.
A win would cement his postseason status and give him a chance at winning the second Cup Series title of his career.
