3M Performance 400 presented by Bondo - Michigan International Speedway

Edwards Outduels Busch for Win, Bonus Points
It was Old West style showdown stuff -- Kyle "Rowdy" Busch vs. Carl "Mr. Clean" Edwards. On the final restart, there were two laps for all the gold after 400 miles of lead-swapping between NASCAR's hard-charging gunslingers. Edwards, in this one, gunned Busch down, blowing him away in a two-lap dash at the end. The No. 99 driver earned 10 more bonus points, cutting the gap between him and the No. 18 team to forty points heading into the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. It was Edwards' fifth win of the year. And, once again, Jack Roush's stable of Fords proved to be too much for the competition at this two-mile speed palace beyond the suburbs of Detroit in what is known as Michigan's Irish Hills.

Brian Vickers Bulls His Way to Michigan Pole Position
Brian Vickers put his Red Bull Toyota on the pole position for the 3M Performance 400 presented by Bondo on Friday afternoon in the Irish Hills of Michigan. Vickers put down a very quick lap of 38.189 seconds, at an average speed 188.536 mph, around the Michigan International Speedway to give Team Red Bull their first career pole. This is Vickers' fifth pole in 159 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and his first pole in 10 races at Michigan International Speedway. Jimmie Johnson qualified in the second position, posting his 18th top-10 start of 2008 and his ninth in 14 races at Michigan. Elliott Sadler, who will be racing for a one million dollar donation for the Children’s Miracle Network on Sunday, took the third starting position, giving him his eighth top-10 start at Michigan International Speedway. It is his ninth in 23 races this season. Patrick Carpentier (sixth) was the fastest qualifying rookie and the fastest of the drivers who had to qualify on time.
