Who won the NASCAR race yesterday? Complete results from Sunday Michigan race


The driver who won the NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday is the same driver who won the race at the same track on Saturday.

Kevin Harvick pretty easily won the first Saturday-Sunday Cup Series doubleheader in the history of the two-mile oval in Brooklyn, Mich.

And as easy as it was for Harvick to win again Sunday, Denny Hamlin was the only one who could threaten the victory. No. 11 driver Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota almost caught Harvick at Michigan’s closing laps but ran out of laps. Currently Harvick ‘s six victories are the most in the series this season, one more than five of Hamlin’s.

Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch placed third and fourth in the top four, respectively, to get three Gibbs cars. Erik Jones, who heard Thursday he won’t return to JGR next season, finished 27th due to a late-race electric problem.

Below is more on Harvick ‘s win, plus the full results from the Michigan race on Sunday.

Harvick ‘s win Sunday gave him the doubleheader sweep of the weekend Cup Series. It also meant his Stewart-Haas Racing Team No. 4 car brought to Michigan is now 3 for 3 on this season’s wins.

Harvick was driving the same car last month, when he won the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Set up specifically for races on massive ovals such as Michigan and Indy, the car could be made for the season, as the rest of the NASCAR Cup Series schedule doesn’t have similar tracks.


“I bet we ‘re not running it anymore, to be honest with you,” Harvick told the media after the race when asked what’s next for a dominant car like this. “I think there are so many different race track styles that we’re going to do as we move on here.

Obviously we ‘re going to a road race next week, then we’re going to a low downforce track at Dover for two races in a row, then a superspeedway car, then you’re going into short tracks, Darlington with high downforce cars. I know that you’re not going to run that at Vegas or Charlotte.

“Honestly, I don’t think you’re going to run that car any more.”

Of rivalry, this is good news. Harvick led 90 of Sunday’s 156 laps, probably the most of all on-field drivers. He has earned 53 points in the NASCAR Cup Series points standings to pad what’s now a 137-point lead over Hamlin.

“It’s impossible to predict what the end of the year would carry to the extent where this might be the last victory, you could earn six more,” said Harvick. “You just never know. I think the most important thing is to stay focused on the week-to-week attitude of trying to prepare the best you can. Win or lose last week, prepare for next week on Monday.

“It’s really important to maintain a short-term memory. I think our staff does a pretty nice job of it, making sure we ‘re the best we can and ready for the next event. You’ll grab what you can out of it on Monday morning, and push on to the next.”

Hamlin, Truex, Busch and Logano sniffed the gap at different points in Michigan’s Sunday battle, namely at restarts, but no one had enough for Harvick.

The only drivers who didn’t end the race on Sunday are Ryan Blaney and Brad Keselowski. Group Penske teammates crashed at Stage 3 start as they battled for the lead. Keselowski poked his car’s nose under Blaney but lost control, sending them both crashing into the wall.
