Bowyer wins rain-shortened race at Michigan

Rain delays start of Michigan Cup race

Current NASCAR points leader Kyle Busch is back in West Michigan to race at Berlin Raceway.

Electing to take two tires to start up front, Bowyer got past Kevin Harvick on a restart and held it after 133 of 180 scheduled laps as the skies opened and the race was made official early.

"It was gamble on [crew chief Mike Bugarewicz's] part", Bowyer said. "It was uncharacteristic for him".

Harvick turned a lap of 200.719 miles per hour, more than one-tenth of a second ahead of the second quickest time, which was held by three-time defending victor at Michigan Kyle Larson (200.083 mph). Bowyer took two tires and had position to the outside of Harvick when the race went back to green. "I can learn things from some of these guys, I remember when I came here probably 6 or 7 years ago I learned some things from Brian Campbell the guys awesome around this place and does a really good job and you can learn from all your competitors".

It is the second victory for Bowyer and his eighth top-10 finish in 2018. Kyle Busch was fourth, the lone Toyota near the top in a race dominated by Ford. "It's a monsoon!'" Bowyer said. "It's a confidence booster".

Harvick led a race-best 46 laps, but was passed by Bowyer with seven laps remaining.

Despite placing second, Harvick continued his dominant stretch in 2018 in which he already has five victories.

Blaney won the first stage and Harvick took the second. "Our pit crew was solid. But it worked, it was a great call and we won".

"I've been on both sides of this", said Harvick, who was denied another chance to overtake Bowyer by the weather. "If you are going to have racing luck work against you, you want it to at least stay on your own team". Kurt Busch won the pole Friday.

Busch says not only can other drivers learn racing against him, but he can learn from them too. "We had no big mistakes or no big rough moments. We got about three- quarters of the way down pit road, I was about 70 percent sure", Bugarewicz said. The Xfinity race Saturday was shortened because of rain. "To finish 1-2-3 is very special".

Seven of the top eight finishers drove a Ford.

Kurt Busch finished third in a 1-2-3 sweep for Stewart-Haas Racing, Kyle Busch was fourth, Paul Menard fifth, with Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott and Jamie McMurray rounding out the top 10.

The start of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race is being delayed by rain.
