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 weekendâs NASCAR Props Challenge picks, weâll rely on the most recent race run at Michigan due to the current aero package, as well as historic results at this racetrack.
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 donât necessarily think it has to be the polesitter.
Toyotaâs top MENCS drivers, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones, combined to lead a total of five laps here in June.
Iâll be surprised if Toyota doesnât eclipse that number on Sunday, but Iâll take the field over Toyota here, especially considering how dominant the Fords were last go-round.
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 letâs go under.
