Kenseth Wins The Pure Michigan 400
Matt Kenseth won Sunday's Pure Michigan 400, getting his third win of the season at Michigan International Speedway.
Kevin Harvick finished second with Martin Truex Jr. third. Austin Dillon posted a career-best fourth-place finish with Denny Hamlin, one of Kenseth's Joe Gibbs Racing teammates, completing the top five. Kenseth led 146 of the 200 laps on his way to a dominating win, his second victory in three weeks and his third career win on the two-mile Irish Hills oval.
Harvick scored his ninth second-place finish of the season ... Truex was strong all afternoon in notching his seventh top five of the year ... Dillon's fourth-place finish was a career best. Clint Bowyer was running near the front of the field until disaster struck when he was clipped by Newman, and made heavy contact with both the outside and inside walls. Bowyer finished 41st and his Chase hopes took a severe hit ... Jimmie Johnson cut a tire early and fell back in the field, but that was just the start of his problems. Miscues on pit road contributed to a 39th-place finish.
Next Saturday The IRWIN Tools Night Race at the Bristol Motor Speedway will bw=e on 630 The Fan!
