NASCAR made its way to Michigan this weekend for the Pure Michigan 400. Coming into the event, Dale Earnhardt Jr. held a slight edge over Jeff Gordon in the point standings.

Joey Logano led the majority of the laps on the day, while Jeff Gordon seemed to have the strongest car. A restart with 17 laps remaining put Logano and Gordon in direct competition for the lead.

Gordon was able to shut down Logano on several occasions, forcing him back. In the end, Gordon would take the checkered flag, while Logano had to settle for third.

The win put Gordon back at the top of the pack in the points race, just three points ahead of Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt Jr. finished fifth in the race to keep things close.

Jeff Gordon in a four-time champion, but has been shutout since 2000. The last two times Gordon won the title, he notched victories at Indianapolis and Michigan, a feat he has accomplished this season.
