Michigan winners and losers after Saturday’s Cup race:

WINNERS

Kevin Harvick That’s five wins this season, two in a row at Michigan and eight consecutive top-five finishes this season. He also won both stages Saturday, sweeping the day. He’s ready for the playoffs now.

Choose rule — Good rule change and that added some intrigue before each restart on what lanes drivers would pick. At one point, it made a big impact in helping Chase Elliott take the lead late in the race.

Brad KeselowskiHis runner-up finish marked his third consecutive finish of first or second but he still has yet to win at Michigan, his home track. He gets another chance Sunday.

Chris BuescherHe finished 20th but benefits because the top-20 finishers are inverted for Sunday’s race, putting him on the pole for the race.

Martin Truex Jr.His third-place finish marked his fourth top-three finish in the last five races. He made a nice recovery from making contact with Tyler Reddick early and cutting a tire that forced him to pit under green and lose a lap.

LOSERS

John Hunter NemechekTough day. Had contact with Chris Buescher that spun him and then had tires go down twice, leading to him causing three cautions.

Cole Custer Crash led to a 34th-place finish and the need for his team to prepare a backup car for Sunday’s race.
