This week the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to Michigan International Speedway for the second and final visit of the season.

In June, Joey Logano dominated from the pole, leading 163 of 200 laps before taking the checkered flag.

To make this weekend’s NASCAR Props Challenge picks, we’ll rely on the most recent race run at Michigan due to the current aero package, as well as historic results at this racetrack.

1. Will the polesitter lead O/U 35.5 laps in Stage 1?

The first stage will be 60 laps, meaning the polesitter needs to lead more than half of Stage 1 to go over.

While I do expect one car to dominate the first stage, I don’t necessarily think it has to be the polesitter.

Pick: Under

2. A Toyota driver wins either Stage 1 or 2: Yes or No?

Toyota’s top MENCS drivers, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones, combined to lead a total of five laps here in June.

I’ll be surprised if Toyota doesn’t eclipse that number on Sunday, but I’ll take the field over Toyota here, especially considering how dominant the Fords were last go-round.

Pick: No

3. O/U 5.5 drivers will score stage points in both Stages 1 and 2?

Just four drivers (Kurt Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Alex Bowman and Aric Almirola) earned points in both stages with this aero package back in June, so let’s go under.

Pick: Under

4. The Stage 2 winner will lead O/U 25.5 laps in that stage?
