Chevrolet back in Victory Lane at Michigan
Johnson’s victory also ended a three-race streak of Ford-powered cars in victory lane here, the Sprint Cup’s closest stop to the headquarters of General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co.
Alba Colon, Chevrolet’s program manager for NASCAR series, was happy to claim the challenge trophy that goes to the manufacturer who wins at Michigan International Speedway.
“It’s great to have a friendly competition and bring this trophy home to our office,” she said.
The last Chevy win here was Earnhardt’s victory in June 2012.
Joey Logano won the August race in a Team Penske Ford and Greg Biffle was the victor in last June’s Father’s Day race in a Roush Fenway Racing Fusion. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns here Aug. 17 for the Pure Michigan 400.
