For its entirety, Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Michigan was a race against the rain. In those cases, a faster race is, for obvious reasons, better. On lap one, it didn't get off to an auspicious start.
Alex Bowman was on the inside of Brian Scott and got loose and spun. At essentially the same time just a few cars back, Travis Pastrana spun as well. And then between them, Brian Vickers spun towards the grass after making contact with Joey Logano.
Bowman, Pastrana and Vickers also crashed last week at Iowa. That too, was our craziest moment of that race. Nice congruity, eh?
Jeffrey Earnhardt was also collected in the crash. And while some teams' in-race strategy hinged on the impending arrival of precipitation, the race was run in its entirety. Regan Smith was your winner, and Kyle Larson finished second.
