Race 15 – LifeLock 400 at Michigan Recap

Posted by chadmusselman on June 17, 2008

So, I’m a couple days late in my recap…oh well.

The race had its moments of excitement and overall wasn’t too bad. It was typical Michigan with long green flag runs and fuel mileage playing a big part at the end of the race. Unfortunately for me, the place I was watching the end of the race had Directv, which went out with 4 laps to go. I did get to hear the “overtime” on the radio.

How did my picks do this week? I had the 1st, 2nd, and 5th place finishers, with some others that finished in the teeens.

Four with a real shot to win:
Kyle Busch – 13th place finish. Didn’t look like his dominating self.
Tony Stewart – Nice 5th place finish
Denny Hamlin – 14th place finish was about 5 or 10 spots lower than expected.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. – Finally, a win!

Two who should do well:
Martin Truex Jr. – 17th place finish was disappointing.
Kasey Kahne – Another strong run with a 2nd place finish.

Darkhorse:
Reed Sorenson – Horrible race for Reed, finishing 34th. Was never in contention

The fantasy standings are getting interesting. I’ll do a full writeup on them after the next race at Infineon Raceway.
