    With time running out on his bid to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Greg Biffle is back at the site of his most recent victory. In June of 2013, Biffle won at Michigan International Speedway - his fourth victory at the track and second in a row. Biffle is the active leader in wins at Michigan, but he finished 19th at the track earlier this season.

    Joey Logano won the pole at Michigan International Speedway - and lately at this track, that's been a pretty good indicator of things to come. It's Logano's third pole in 16 Cup races at MIS, and the previous two times he won the pole, he also went on to win the race. In fact, three of the last four race winners at Michigan also took the pole - Logano this year, Matt Kenseth last August and Jeff Gordon in August of 2014.

    Alex Bowman should have plenty of fans this weekend at Michigan International Speedway in his return to NASCAR Sprint Cup racing. Not only will he be filling in for Dale Earnhardt Jr., but his No. 88 Chevrolet will be adorned with a special University of Michigan paint scheme. Maybe that'll be enough to turn Bowman into a college football diehard.

    The winner, a fresh-faced kid from Connecticut who nonetheless seemingly has been in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series forever. Joey Logano (26), Chase Elliott (20) and Kyle Larson (24) finished 1-2-3 in this season's first Michigan race, forming the youngest top three in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history. In Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 (2 p.m. ET on NBCSN), the same aero package will be in play as the June race.

    While James Hinchcliffe has been leading the same IndyCar race for 11 weeks, Will Power has been piling up wins and runner-up finishes. There have been five other races completed during the unprecedented 2+-month rain delay of the Texas race that is set to resume Saturday night on lap 72. Power won three of those races and was the runner-up in the other two, moving the Team Penske driver from seventh to second in season points.

    James Hinchcliffe has been leading the IndyCar race at Texas for such a long time. When the rain-interrupted race resumes on lap 72 Saturday night at the high-banked - and hopefully dry - 1 1/2-mile oval, Hinchcliffe will have led for 76 days. ''It's better than not leading at all, that's for sure,'' Hinchcliffe said, with a chuckle.

    Power continued his stirring late-season run on Monday, holding pole-sitter Mikhail Aleshin at bay after a final restart, and won the rain-delayed IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway. It was the fourth win in six races for Power, the 29th of his career, and cut 38 points off the lead in the standings held by Team Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud. Pagenaud finished 18th after a late crash and Power trails by 20 with three races remaining in the season.

    With rain pelting the garage roof at Pocono Raceway and knowing he'd have to wait another day to race, Mikhail Aleshin just shrugged. No big deal for the first Russian-born driver to win an IndyCar pole.
