NASCAR Pre-Race Media: Top 5 sleepers for Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 (3 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN)

The best of the best usually win at Michigan. That’s because Michigan is a horsepower track and the ones that are usually fast on the season are fast here. Still, in saying that, the chance of a fluke winner can occur due to wildly different pit strategies that can occur.

Here are some sleepers to watch for Sunday’s race.

Ryan Blaney

Good odds here for a driver with four top 10 finishes in his last six Michigan tries. In fact, he had a shot to win Race 2 last year before a crash late. On the season, he also has a top six in five of the last seven races too.

Alex Bowman

I’d give him a look here. Bowman, is good on these types of track  and was 10th in both Michigan races in 2019.

Kurt Busch

Nine top 12 finishes in his last 10 Michigan tries including three top six finishes in his last six overall. He was runner-up in the spring race of 2019 and 10th in both races a year ago. He has six top eight finishes in his last nine starts on the year.

Austin Dillon

He’s had some good success in Michigan and was eighth in Race 2 last year.

Matt DiBenedetto

Worth a look. He was seventh in Race 2 last year and driving for a team that’s typically strong in Michigan. He’s had a top 11 in five straight races now too.
