DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Clint Bowyer’s win at Michigan International Speedway earlier this summer snapped a three-race Michigan win streak for Kyle Larson. Historically speaking the super-fast two-miler has shown a tendency toward repeat victory – good news for Bowyer now, and for Larson as they prepare for Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 (at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Ten drivers since 2001 have scored multiple wins at Michigan led by Greg Biffle, who had four (back-to-back in 2004 and 2005 and back-to-back 2012 and 2013). Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch join Larson as three-time winners since then. Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano and Jeff Gordon all have won twice in that timeframe.

Chase Elliott heads to best track after first Cup win

That track is Michigan International Speedway, the 2-mile facility that hosts Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 (2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN).

The Hendrick Motorsports driver has yet to have a bad race in five starts Michigan. He’s had winning runs ruined by bad restarts late in races, but no bad races.

Jumping ahead.

According to Racing Insights, Elliott is third on the list of drivers in number of Michigan starts prior to their first finish outside the top 10.’Cale Yarborough and Buddy Baker have the most with six.

Jumping ahead.

Sunday also marks Elliott’s 100th Cup Series start. Should he finally claim a Michigan win, he’d be the sixth driver to win in his 100th start.
