NASCAR Michigan Auto Racing

Kyle Busch fires back at Toyota sandbagging claim

He's also won the last three Cup races there.

Kyle Larson claimed his third consecutive win at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday when he took the lead from Martin Truex Jr. on an overtime restart in the Pure Michigan 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race. Larson was in Knoxville, Iowa, Saturday night where he finished second in the Knoxville Nationals dirt sprint auto event.

Larson won by 0.31 seconds in his No. 42 Chevrolet.

But there was Larson at the end, launching the most flawless restart of his career, vaulting from fourth to first in NASCAR Overtime and somehow driving past prohibitive title contender, championship favorite and race leader Martin Truex Jr.

Neymar scores on his debut as PSG defeat Guingamp 3-0
The Brazilian set up Edinson Cavani to make it 2-0, before the Uruguay global fed Neymar for his first goal in PSG colours. After the first half finished 0-0, Jordan Ikoko scored a barely believable own goal seven minutes after the break.

As for the victorious Larson, he sits in third place in the standings after picking up his second win of the season.

Truex was in the lead, about a second ahead of Jones, before a late caution came out because of a spin by Michael McDowell. Truex gave Larson the low line on the restart and that proved to be his undoing.

NOTES: Kyle Busch led 47 laps in the 100-lap NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday before finishing third. He is now winless in 17 Cup races at his home state's track. Flawless weather to race 400 miles. Still, he climbed from 13th on the grid and led 57 laps to be one of the top fantasy earners of the day.

Aside from the end of the first two stages, there were no yellow flags until lap 140, after Kasey Kahne slid in front of Daniel Suarez and slammed into the wall, taking them both out. When that cycle completed near the end of the second stage, Truex was up front and Keselowski in second.
