Indy RC Recap, Michigan Preview

  • In one of the wildest finishes in recent NASCAR history, both RFR drivers fought through the late chaos as Newman earned a 10th-place result in the Oscar Mayer Ford, while Buescher brought home the Castrol machine in 12th.
  • Castrol is back on board Buescher’s No. 17 this weekend for its second-straight primary.
  • ITsavvy makes its RFR primary debut at Michigan on Newman’s Ford. The brand has served as an associate on his machine in select races this season.

Home Sweet Home
Michigan International Speedway serves as ‘home’ for Jack Roush and Roush Fenway Racing, located just an hour from Roush Industries in Livonia, Michigan. MIS has naturally been one of the organization’s most successful tracks on the circuit, with the team earning a total of 23 wins across NASCAR’s three major touring series.
