BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — The Latest on NASCAR's Cup Series race at Michigan (all times local):
Clint Bowyer won his second NASCAR Cup Series race of the season when Sunday's event at Michigan was called early because of rain.
Bowyer beat out Kevin Harvick on a restart to begin the third stage, and then the race went under caution when Ricky Stenhouse Jr. went into the wall. The rain put a stop to the race.
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Matt Kenseth is hoping Friday night's qualifying is a sign better times are ahead.
Kenseth's return to racing is already paying big dividends for Roush Fenway Racing after he grabbed the pole for Saturday night's NASCAR All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Kenseth agreed to return to race on a limited schedule this year for his original team after being dumped by Joe Gibbs Racing last year. He will start alongside RFR teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on the front row.
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Joey Logano had a clear race track in his windshield and a pack of fellow Ford drivers on his bumper. That combination helped the Team Penske driver snap a nearly yearlong losing streak.
Logano won Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway to snap a streak that dated to April 30 of last year. That win at Richmond was later disqualified because his car failed inspection, so the benefits from the victory were stripped and it cost him a spot in the playoffs.
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. can now lean on the same guy he turned to for advice at times as a young driver trying to make it to the Cup Series.
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Former Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne says his health isn't a factor in sharing seat time with Matt Kenseth.
He insists he's as fit as ever.
Kenseth was hired by Roush Fenway Racing this week to split races in the No. 6 Ford with Bayne, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2013.
Kenseth, a two-time Daytona 500 winner and former Cup champion, has been tasked with mentoring Bayne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. while helping Roush get back to a consistently competitive level.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The score is tied 3-3 between Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick in the race for hottest driver in NASCAR. Each has won three races in a row and has been nearly unbeatable through the first nine races of the season.
Up next, though, is Talladega Superspeedway, a wild-card race track that could even the field.
It means Jimmie Johnson, mired in a 32-race losing streak, has a chance to snap the longest winless streak of his career.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Fox Sports will again use a lineup of NASCAR drivers as analysts for a race.
Working the April 28 Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway will be: Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Brad Keselowski and Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr.
All but Keselowski and Wallace were part of the driver crew that called last year's Xfinity race at Pocono Raceway.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Hendrick Motorsports rookie William Byron has posted the fastest lap in practice for the Daytona 500.
Byron turned a lap of 210.681 mph in Saturday afternoon's practice at Daytona International Speedway. It was the fastest lap of two sessions.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was second fastest at 201.649 mph. Stenhouse won two plate races last season, at Talladega in the spring and at Daytona in July. Joey Logano was third and followed by Denny Hamlin.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is a two-time Xfinity Series champion who is coming off the best season of his NASCAR career. He won his first two Cup races last year and made the playoffs for the first time in five seasons of racing in NASCAR's big leagues.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Danica Patrick's heart is racing for Aaron Rodgers.
Patrick, a Chicago Bears fan, confirmed Monday she is dating the Green Bay Packers quarterback.
"Yes, Aaron and I are dating," Patrick told The Associated Press.
Rodgers split from actress Olivia Munn in 2017 after three years of dating. Patrick in late November ended a five-year relationship with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Kasey Kahne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are two former sprint car stars who are on the outside looking in right now at the Super Bowl of Midget Racing.
Neither NASCAR driver scored a top-three finish in Friday night's qualifier, where the podium drivers earn automatic berths into the main event — the Chili Bowl A Main at the Tulsa Expo Center.
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Danica Patrick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. have split as a couple after nearly five years.
A spokeswoman for Patrick confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday that the drivers are "no longer in a relationship."
Patrick didn't attend the season-ending awards ceremony last month in Las Vegas with Stenhouse, who was honored for making NASCAR's playoffs in 2017. That led to speculation about the most high-profile couple in motorsports.
