Bubba Wallace was the fastest in qualifying on Saturday, earning him his first career Cup Series pole.


Rain delayed the start of the FireKeepers Casino 400 on Sunday which meant there was a competition caution at lap 20.


A massive wreck took place on the restart with several drivers involved including JJ Yeley, Austin Cindric, Aric Almirola, Kyle Busch and others.


The stage one victory belonged to Christopher Bell.


With a push from Bell, Denny Hamlin passed Ross Chastain for the lead at lap 35 of stage 2.


Hamlin held off Daniel Suarez to take the stage 2 win.


With 42 laps to go in the race, caution is brought out as race leader Bell is turned into the wall by Chastain after an attempt to block.


Stewart-Haas Racing and Ford have both struggled all season long to find speed and win races, but Kevin Harvick and found himself back in victory lane after a late race restart.


It is his first win since the Bristol Night race of September 2020, marking a 65-race winless streak snapped.
