Find out everything you need to know about the 23ed round of NASCAR cup racing and the Xfinity race hosted at Michigan this weekend.

Michigan International Speedway

The 23ed round NASCAR cup racing will commence this Sunday at the Michigan International Speedway and with just four race days remaining in the 2022 regular season, it’s high time for all the drivers to bring their A-Game to the track. While the battle for the regular season championship between Chase Elliott and Ross Chastain is intensifying the winless drivers will be looking forward to securing the all-important win that can cement their place in the playoffs this season.

For drivers such as the likes of Bubba Wallace, Austin Dillon, and Kevin Harvick the Michigan race might be the last shot at the playoff at the same time for drivers such as Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. who are positioned in the top 16 though winless the pressure will be mounting. With the Richmond and two road course racing coming in the way this might be the last genuine shot most of the drivers have on the win.

Last weekend’s winner at Indy Tyler Reddick will aim for his first cup race win outside the road courses as he will have the momentum and confidence coming to Brooklyn while for veterans like Denny Hamlin, and Kyle Busch the race day will be the right time to set them self’s on the right direction for the win.

The HMS drivers Kyle Larson, Alex Bowman, and William Byron will be hoping to get back to winning ways at the track as they have been winless for so long while their teammate Chase Elliott was consistently hitting the top 2. For the Ford teams, the Michigan outing is of importance as with just 4 wins secured this season they will not be wanting to miss out on yet another win at the track that they have been historically dominating.
