Fantasy Preview: Michigan 6/15

This week, the Sprint Cup Series heads to Michigan International Speedway for the Quicken Loans 400!  Read below to see who I'm picking for this weekend's race.

Tier A
Matt Kenseth
Kenseth always runs strong on the 1.5 mile tracks, and he's due for a win.  I'm really surprised that he's gone winless this season after picking up seven victories last season.  I expect him to run strong this weekend, and maybe his winless streak will come to end.

Tier B
Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
Stenhouse is still looking for his first win, and I wouldn't be shocked if it came at a track like Michigan.  I expect him to run well this weekend and challenge for a top 10.

Martin Truex Jr.
Truex finished third in this race last year, and he's shown signs of repeating that feat this year.  He has momentum after two-straight top 10 finishes, and I expect that to continue this weekend.

AJ Allmendinger
Greg Biffle

Tier C
Brett Moffitt
Moffitt finished 22nd in his first career Sprint Cup Series race at Dover.  Dover is an extremely hard track to debut on, and he will hopefully have an easier time at Michigan.  Michael Waltrip Racing has been strong at Michigan in the past, and that should help Moffitt have a good Top 20 run.
