FAVORITES

Kyle Busch

Busch failed to get a win in his last start, finishing 11th at Watkins Glen last week, his first finish outside of the top 10 in four races. Regardless of how Busch looked in that event, he’ll remain as among the drivers to watch out for at Michigan International Speedway, where he has an average finish of 5.80 over his last five races there — the best among all drivers since 2017. In his last appearance there, Busch finished fifth at the FireKeepers Casino 400 last June.

Martin Truex Jr.

Truex has raced 27 times in his career at the Michigan International Speedway but has yet to win there. He’s come close to that, though, several times, having placed inside the top 10 times. At the FireKeepers Casino 400, he finished third overall despite having a 16th starting spot. Truex is also on an impressive streak of late, finishing inside the top 6 in each of his past three races.


SLEEPERS

Erik Jones

Talk about having a hot stretch. Although Jones hasn’t won a race this season, he’s flirted with success several times of late. In fact, he’s finished inside the top five in all races since the Quaker State 400 race at the Kentucky Speedway last July. Jones is also a solid driver on intermediate tracks, where he has an average finish of 14.13 in eight appearances on such tracks.

Ryan Blaney

Blaney is another driver with zero wins at the Michigan International Speedway, but has been solid there nonetheless. Blaney has an average finish of 14.56 to go with a pair of top 5s and four top 10s in nine career races at the track. He’s also usually competitive in intermediate track races, keeping three top 5s and seven top 10s in 13 career races on such tracks.


LONG SHOT

David Ragan

Ragan is not going to make the cut for the playoffs, but if you’re looking to bet on a long shot, try the Front Row Motorsports driver. Ragan, who is coming off a 22nd-place finish at Watkins Glen. Ragan has not finished better than top 20 in all of his past seven appearances at Michigan International Speedway, but there was a time in 2008 when he went with a back-to-back top 10 finishes there.


Writer’s Prediction

Kyle Busch wins the Consumer Energy 400 and takes one more step closer towards the 2019 Monster Energy Cup Series Championship.
