Five to Watch at Michigan

By Jared Turner, NASCAR Pole Position Contributor

Kyle Larson has won the last two races at Michigan. It might not be a wise idea to bet against him.

In three starts at Michigan, Chase Elliott has as many second-place finishes. To say Elliott is chomping at the bit to go to Victory Lane here would be an understatement.

Martin Truex Jr. will unequivocally arrive at Michigan with both a fast Toyota Tundra and a load of confidence.

Needing to go to Victory Lane in one of the next four races to punch his ticket into the playoffs, Joey Logano has a golden opportunity to do just that at Michigan.

Kyle Busch has had one of the fastest cars every weekend in recent memory. Expect no different at Michigan, where Busch picked up a win in 2011.
