Michigan Fantasy Picks

Jimmie Johnson finally earned a win at Michigan earlier this season. He remains a capable pick as does last years winner Joey Logano. Four-time winner Greg Biffle is another fantasy option and should come cheaper as may Clint Bowyer who has eight top-ten finishes in the last ten races here.

Weather

At MIS the track will be dry on Friday with small chances of isolated thunder storms on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-70s peaking with a high of 81 on Saturday.

Weather for Saturday’s Nationwide Series race in Lexington, OH calls for sun and a high of 80.
