Sprint Cup regular Matt Kenseth tops the speed chart in the Happy Hour practice session for the Nationwide Series Great Clips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The No. 20 Toyota Camry driver ran a fast lap of 177.738 mph. No. 3 Ty Dillon, No. 22 Joey Logano, No. 9 Chase Elliott and No. 60 Chris Buescher round out the top five of the 39 cars out on the track. The No. 46 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Carl Long was the slowest in the final practice session. Kenseth also had a 10-lap average speed in both the first practice and the final practice. His 173.188 mph average was the best of three cars running at least 10 consecutive laps in the first session and his 172.807 mph average was the best of 13 cars running 10 consecutive laps in the final practice session.

Shawn Solomito (No. 75 Eastport Feeds Chevrolet) finished third in Saturday night's NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour (NWMT) Riverhead 200 at Riverhead (NY) Raceway.

He started on the pole, led 13 laps and completed all laps of the 200-lap race. Solomito, who has entered nine of the 12 series races so far this season, moved up one spot from 21st to 20th in the 2016 NWMT championship standings after this event.

Joey Logano had to overcome a late-race penalty in the Pure Michigan 400 when he left equipment outside his pit stall after coming in for a two-tire stop. Logano was forced to start at the back of the lead lap cars in 17th and barely squeaked into the top-10 with a 10th-place finish.

This kept a top-10 streak alive at Michigan International Speedway and extended it to eight consecutive. Logano will be highly regarded next spring at Auto Club Speedway and when the series rolls back to this course in June.

Denny Hamlin finished ninth in the Pure Michigan 400. This is his sixth consecutive top-10 this season—a streak that started with another ninth-place finish at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

During this streak none of Hamlin’s results have been a huge surprise with the exception of his Watkins Glen International victory. The next two races on the schedule will be held at two of his better courses. Darlington Raceway and Richmond International Raceway contribute to his streak.

On a day when his teammate Kyle Larson won to move the Chase bubble, Jamie McMurray had a strong points’ day. He started the Pure Michigan 400 eighth and finished in that same position.

McMurray remained 13th in the standings, but separated himself from Ryan Newman by nine additional points at Michigan International Speedway. Currently he has a 15-point cushion over the cutoff but needs his own victory in order to feel secure.

Carl Edwards had a quiet Pure Michigan 400. He spent slightly more than 20 percent of the race in the top 10, but when the checkers waved over Michigan International Speedway, he scored a seventh-place finish, which was his third consecutive top-10 and his 18th such result on this track in 24 attempts.

Still, more was expected of Edwards on a track where top-fives were once common. Edwards needs to make a little more noise before he is placed-and-held, but he is doing a yeoman’s job.

For the first time since Texas Motor Speedway this spring, Jimmie Johnson earned back-to-back top-10s. He finished seventh last week at Bristol Motor Speedway and was sixth in the Pure Michigan 400.

In his most recent streak before this weekend, Johnson won an event on the two-mile Auto Club Speedway and had three consecutive top-10s culminating in the fourth-place result at Texas. Darlington Raceway’s Southern 500 will be the real test of whether this team has reversed their fortune.

Kevin Harvick finished fifth in the Pure Michigan 400, which was his sixth straight top-10 on an oval track.

Harvick remains the best overall value in most salary cap games. His price tag can be restrictive, but when he fits a niche he is a no-brainer.

Ryan Blaney posted top-10 speeds in all practices and qualification for the Pure Michigan 400. He backed up his seventh-place start with a fourth-place finish at Michigan International Speedway.

All weekend we have been predicting Blaney and Chase Elliott would challenge for a top-five. Elliott finished second to Blaney’s fourth and now both racers are poised to go on another top-10 run. Darlington Raceway next week could provide a momentary blip for the Young Guns.

Brad Keselowski used some strategy to establish his No. 2 Team Penske Ford in the top five. Once there, he raced with the leaders for the final quarter of the Pure Michigan 400 and finished the third at Michigan International Speedway

Both Penske Racers were favorites this week, but Kez did not make a lot of noise early. He redeemed himself at the end, however, when the points mattered most.

Chase Elliott spun his tires on a late-race restart this June in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway. He spun his tires on the final restart again this week and finished second for the second time in two starts on this track.

Elliott is one of the top points’ earners this week and his salary cap in most games was manageable. Elliott now has a 27-point advantage over the Chase bubble with two more opportunities to win during the regular season. He debuted at Darlington Raceway last year and suffered crash damage, however.

It took 99 starts, but Kyle Larson finally won his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race. He took the lead from Chase Elliott with less than 10 laps remaining and held off the charge from the rookie.

Everyone kept asking when Larson would win his first race because he kept coming close. He had top-five attempts ruined by accidents in the last two weekends and fell far down the points. Larson was in a must-win situation. With this victory he makes the Chase. All three NASCAR top-tier winners this week won their first race in their respective series with Brett Moffitt winning the Camping World Truck Series at Michigan and Michael McDowell winning the XFINITY road course race in Elkhart Lake.
