The final month of regular-season Cup Series racing is here.
The FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway will have its green flag drop just past 3 pm and will mark a return to an oval after two trips to treacherous tracks — the “tricky triangle” at Pocono and the 14-turn course at Indy.
This is the fourth-to-last race before the 16-driver field playoffs begin. Fourteen drivers have already notched a win on the season. Will a new one do so today?
The 200-lap track has its three stages ending in Lap 45, Lap 120 and Lap 200.

Live updates at Michigan International Speedway
2:10 p.m.: Saturday marked the Cup race’s qualifying, yes, but it also saw Ty Gibbs notch his fifth Xfinity Series win of 2022. The 19-year-old will be competing in Kurt Busch’s No. 45 car for a third straight week as Busch recovers from concussion-like symptoms. He’ll begin in the No. 11 position.
Who took the pole?
Bubba Wallace notched his first career pole Saturday afternoon. The next two drivers will also be driving Toyotas — Christopher Bell will start alongside Wallace, and Kyle Busch will start from the No. 3 spots.
