winner NASCAR Cup Series held at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday Many laps did not lead.
But after the 200th lap, the last lap of FireKeepers Casino 400, Ryan Blaney did it. Blaney was ahead of the last eight laps after restarting, and this was the only number of laps he led throughout the day. He won the opponent’s chequered rally and cleverly blocked the second driver William Byron.
Blaney won for the second time this season. His first victory was in Atlanta in March.
When Blaney increased his trophy, another driver was competing for a place in the playoffs. This allows a berth to enter the regular season finals in Daytona on Saturday.
Below is more information about Blaney’s victory on Sunday, as well as the full results of the game.
Who won the NASCAR race yesterday?
In the FireKeepers Casino 400 in Michigan, Ryan Blaney defeated William Byron by 0.077 seconds. Blaney exited the last corner with a bigger lead, but Byron swooped inward in the front section, which forced Blaney to follow him and throw the block.
“Michigan’s problem is almost open up, just want to play air games,” Blaney told NBCSN in a post-match interview. “I hate that you have to race like that, but this is how you have to run. It works for us.”
The decisive restart was after a multi-vehicle collision before the entrance to the pit lane.
Blaney took the lead with the help of Kyle Busch’s “strong push” and kept his Penske Team No. 12 car ahead for the rest of the distance.
“I am grateful to Kyle for pushing me through there,” Blaney said.
NASCAR results for Michigan
Ryan Blaney, William Byron, Kyle Larson, Kurt Busch and Denny Hamlin are among the top five at the University of Michigan. All of them won the playoff spots before Sunday.
A driver got rid of the playoff bubble. Kevin Harvick finished 14th. Harvick won the first three games in Michigan.
The other driver may have burst the bubble. Austin Dillon crashed into the game at the end of Phase 2. His No. 3 car crashed into the outer wall after making contact with Brad Keselowski’s No. 2 car.
Dillon blamed himself for the sinking, but Keselowski also apologized.
“Watching all this made me feel sick for Austin and his team. He was crazy fast today and deserves better. Definitely not what we want to see,” Keselowski wrote on Twitter . “There is one more lap. We all hope to get points. I should give him more space to avoid this situation. I’m glad he’s okay.”
The shipwreck destined Dillon to win 36th place. He is now 25 points behind Tyler Redick and ranks 16th and the last place in the playoffs. Redick had his own problems on Sunday; he finished 29th due to a late accident. He could have locked Dillon out of the points tiebreaker in a clean and neat manner.
Dillon and Reddick can make all playoff maths irrelevant by winning at Daytona, but they will compete with many drivers who can also win. This will make the Coke Zero Sugar 400 (7pm EST; NBC, TSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR radio) even more intense.
