The Pure Michigan 400 live stream and televised race will be the latest on the Sprint Cup Series 2013 NASCAR schedule. Sunday's race has Joey Logano with the pole, and two drivers - Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick, looking for their first-ever win at the track. It could be a pivotal event for the current standings as well. Sprint Cup fans will be able to see the latest NASCAR race live streaming and on TV on Sunday afternoon.
According to an Aug. 17 report via Detroit Free Press, current Sprint Cup standings leader, Jimmie Johnson, will start from the rear of the field in Sunday's race. Johnson had an unfortunate wreck during practice at the Michigan International Speedway track on Saturday, but will be good to go on Sunday. The No. 48 Lowes Chevrolet driver had been the fastest overall during practice up until the wreck. He also qualified third on Friday to pole-sitter Joey Logano of Penske.
Following Saturday's wreck, Johnson was taken to the hospital to get checked out and was determined to be uninjured. The five-time Sprint Cup Series champ said following the incident:
“I’m a little puzzled why I spun. Even in that run, I had great entry stability. To me it felt like I lost down force just from the traffic scenario.
“We’ll be OK Sunday. We just got loose there and spun. We are working on it.”
Johnson had his best finish at MIS last year, when he finished fifth at the June 2012 race at the track. In 2005, he came from the back of the pack and ended up finishing tenth overall. Johnson is looking to become a six-time Sprint Cup Series champion and currently leads the standings by 75 points over Clint Bowyer. Carl Edwards is currently in third place and 80 points behind Johnson.
