WALTRIP "Six weeks later it's a totally different-feeling track. Oil comes up out of the asphalt, and it's harder to get grip. Very seldom does anybody sweep this place."
8.19 MICHIGAN INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
2011 RECAP KYLE BUSCH beat Jimmie Johnson by a little more than half a second at Michigan, one of five tracks at which the five-time champ hasn't won.
TRACK FACT Dale Earnhardt and sons Kerry and Dale Jr. ran here in 2000, the second time a father and two sons have driven in the same Cup race.
EYE ON 2012 The last time Dale Jr. reached Victory Lane was here in 2008. In 25 career starts at Michigan, he's driven to a top 10 finish eight times.
WALTRIP "From the spring to the summer, the setup might change a little and the grip might change a little, but Michigan is just fuel mileage, fuel mileage, fuel mileage."
8.25 BRISTOL MOTOR SPEEDWAY
2011 RECAP On a restart with 80 laps to go, BRAD KESELOWSKI took the lead and kept it, winning his second race since breaking his left ankle less than a month before.
