Dale Earnhardt Jr. finally got back to Victory Lane on the Sprint Cup Series with a win in the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway back in June, and he'll be looking to pay out on the NASCAR Odds at the track once again on Sunday afternoon.
Earnhardt Jr. and the rest of the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will compete in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday, with the circuit fast approaching the start of its Chase playoffs; that begins in Chicago on September 16.
And Earnhardt Jr. will be looking for another good result at Michigan to secure his hold on a berth in the Chase; after leading the standings earlier in the season, he's now down to fourth place (17 points back of first-place Jimmie Johnson) and has just the one win.
Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, Tony Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne and Ryan Newman are the other drivers currently holding down Chase berths, with Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon all below the cutoff line heading into this weekend's race at Michigan.
Edwards has a pair of Michigan victories in his career in 2008 and 2007, while Busch took the checkered flag at the venue in this race last year and will be trying to pay off on the NASCAR odds at Bovada in the event once again on Sunday. Gordon has also won at Michigan in the past, but he hasn't managed to take the checkered flag there since 2001.
Stewart, Kenseth, Biffle, and Johnson followed Earnhardt Jr. across the finish line at Michigan back in June, with Gordon sixth, Edwards 11th, and Busch back in 32nd.
