Defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski says Penske Racing and Roush Fenway Racing are reluctant to share information on their Ford cars this season because Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing steal information. “What keeps it from going too far is the fact Hendrick and Gibbs have this nasty little
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is always a threat to win on both restrictor plate tracks at Daytona and Talladega.
But recently, he’s actually becoming a bigger threat at winning on the 2-mile Michigan International Speedway oval.
Since Earnhardt joined Hendrick Motorsports in 2008, he’s won twice. Both victories happened to be the June race in Michigan.
Last year, Earnhardt ended his career...
Greg Biffle raced to his second straight Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway, easily holding off Kevin Harvick after points leader Jimmie Johnson smacked the wall in the final laps Sunday.
It was the 1,000th victory for Ford across NASCAR's three national series -- Cup, Nationwide and Truck.
It was Biffle's first win since he overtook Johnson to win at MIS...
If I am Dale Earnhardt Jr., who just finished third last week at Pocono, plus jumped two spots in the points to fourth position, I have to be extremely excited about heading to the Irish Hills of Michigan this weekend. Remember that Dale won this race last year, and I believe the team is stronger now than they were then.
I think this new Gen-6 car is something that he really has...
Dale Earnhardt Jr. hopes no one steps on his cape this Sunday.
After qualifying 12th in the Man of Steel Chevy on Friday, Earnhardt, the defending winner of the Quicken Loans 400, wants to keep his winning streak rolling at Michigan International Speedway.
"I think the car does look good," Earnhardt said. "Hopefully, it's as fast as it looks good. That is going...
Whenever the Sprint Cup series comes to Michigan, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the center of attention.
He won at Michigan International Speedway last June after 143 races without a victory. His most recent win before that was also at Michigan in 2008, so the Sprint Cup's twice-yearly visits to the Irish Hills always present an opportunity for Earnhardt and his No. 88 Chevrolet.
Greg Biffle comes into Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 from the Michigan International Speedway with a bit more confidence in his step. Biffle and his Roush Fenway Racing team have struggled since finishing fourth at Texas six races ago. His finishes have been 19th, 36th, 13th, 31st, and 15th. Using strategy he was able to finish second last weekend at Pocono.
“Coming off our second...

Dale Earnhardt Jr. last visited Victory Lane a year ago here and owner Rick Hendrick said he thought his driver looked even better heading into this weekend's race than he did in 2012, when he ended a 143-race dry spell.
Earnhardt wasn't sure.
"It's easier to see the truth from his position on the other side of the fence. It's more difficult to see growth and...

Last year it was Batman. This year it's Superman.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 Diet Mountain Dew/Dark Knight Rises Chevrolet, promoting last summer's Batman blockbuster, in the 2012 Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

ON HIS LAP: “We really don’t know what is going to happen because of the early draw for us. I think the lap was decent. I told Matt (Puccia) we could have been a tenth or two better knowing how the car drove if I had to do it over again. That sure doesn’t help us though. The 20 beat us pretty good already and I have a feeling...
