Worth mentioning: Chase Elliott’s father, Bill, won seven races at MIS and made 61 starts there. Two father-son combos have won at Michigan: Bobby and Davey Allison and Dale Earnhardt and Dale Jr. … Michigan might be Jimmie Johnson’s worst track. In terms of average finish, it’s his third worst, behind only Daytona and Talladega. But he has won more races at both of those places than he has at Michigan.
Who’s Hot/ Who’s Not
Erik Jones: He led a career-high 20 laps and finished a personal-best third at Pocono. That pushed him to 16th in points, an impressive showing this deep in the season for a rookie on a brand new team.
Trevor Bayne: In the last six races, he has dropped from 12th in points to 18th and has finished in the top 10 only once.
