Fantasy Preview: Pure Michigan 400

The Sprint Cup Series heads to Michigan International Speedway for the Pure Michigan 400.  After the race on Sunday, there will only be three more races until the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Tier A
Kasey Kahne
Kahne is a driver who still needs a win to get into the Chase.  Michigan is the type of track where Kahne excels, and he'll need all the speed he can get to work his way towards the front.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Tier B
Joey Logano
Logano qualified second for the Pure Michigan 400, so he definitely has a fast car.  Logano won this race last year, and he should be strong again this weekend.

Carl Edwards
Edwards starts right behind Logano in third.  Roush-Fenway Racing is normally strong at Michigan, but they failed to run well in June.  I look for that whole team to turn it around on Sunday and have a strong run.

AJ Allmendinger
Greg Biffle

Tier C
Kyle Larson
At this point, you'd be stupid not to pick Larson.  He's been good everywhere, and he finished eighth at Michigan in June.  He qualified 13th, and he should run towards the front most of the day.
