After road races and tricky triangles, NASCAR returns to a more conventional track, the Michigan International Speedway. Many of the top drivers are happy to head back to the ovals this week as the battle continues for spots in the chase for the Championship.
At Michigan, balance in the car is so important, as is the case at most high speed high bank tracks.
"It's basically every thing you learned at Daytona and Talladega. If you can get to his quarter panel it will pull you forward and him back," said Tony Stewart. "You have to then if you can get to him get some separation or else you get the opposite scenario and he starts pulling you back. So it's definitely an aero game for sure."
Drivers also love Michigan because of the wide open spaces that provide plenty of places to pass. A nice contrast from Pocono and the Glen.
