Joey Logano 3rd at Michigan, hopes he's 'out of the funk'

Joey Logano 3rd at Michigan, hopes he's 'out of the funk'

So we're out for the rest of this practice and we'll get back on track for the second one.

One person who is showing signs of getting better this season is Danica Patrick.

Logano, who announced after the race he and wife Brittany are expecting their first child next January, made that excitement very apparent in his post-race press conference at the two-mile track.

Patrick now sits 30th in NASCAR standings.

Here is the NASCAR slate for this weekend.

They'll be racing in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but as always in the family-oriented sport, their loved ones will be close by. Track: Michigan International Speedway (oval, 2 miles). Known as the fastest track on the schedule, the D-Shaped Oval 2-mile behemoth allows for speeds consistently over 200 miles per hour all-race long.

It was the third Cup win of Larson's career - and second in a row at MI. Last week Ryan Blaney with minimal place differential value won the race and was around 5% owned in tournaments. But the Wood Brothers had not taken an event since Trevor Bayne at the 2011 Daytona 500.

Blaney's first win running the No. 21 Ford was far from easy.

If Logano had won the race, he would have made an announcement in the winner's circle.

London Terror Attack Suspect Named By Media
Manchester was hit by a deadly attack on May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert. A local imam, Mohammed Mahmoud, said he and others shielded the man until police could take him away.

Kyle Larson earned his first MIS victory last August, leading 41 laps. Truex has 10 stage victories this year.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Bubba Wallace takes Detroit Free Press sports writer George Sipple for a pace auto ride at Michigan International Speedway on June 18, 2017.

XFINITYSite: Brooklyn, Michigan Schedule: Friday, practice, 12:30 p.m., (FS2), practice, 3 p.m., (FS2); Saturday, qualifying, 10 a.m., (FS2), race, 1:30 p.m., FS1. Last year: Daniel Suarez claimed the first of three victories.

A win would have gone a long way.

Truex led 62 laps, second only to race victor Kyle Larson's 96, but finished sixth and lost the series lead to Larson by five points.

Chase Elliott. For all the reasons listed above, his 2.0 average finish past year and 66 laps led at MIS. Keselowski also swept the stages.

In all, they accumulated 35 playoff points just through stage bonuses alone. Elliott Sadler trails Allgaier 409-408. He followed that up with another second-place finish on Sunday.

CAMPING WORLD TRUCKDRIVIN' FOR LINEMEN 200Site: Madison, Illinois. Gateway Motorsports Park for the Truck Series was even worse. Race distance: 200 miles, 160 laps. Last race: Bell won in Texas despite starting 21st, by far the furthest back of any victor this season. The Cup Series has just 37 entries this weekend, the smallest field since Martinsville in September 1996. Jones also drives the number 33 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Richard Childress Racing. Bell, who won at Texas under caution after a nasty wreck, trails Johnny Sauter by 40 points in the standings. Look for Truex to be one of the two most popular picks and one of the two highest scorers at DraftKings. 20th in the June race a year ago, his new JTG Daugherty team is a virtual unknown but could use pit strategy to race its way to the front.
