BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Chip Ganassi doesnt have to think for long to know the answer to the question: When was the last time he had two cars in the Chase for the Sprint Cup?Its been never, Ganassi said.After Kyle Larsons victory Sunday in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, Ganassi has that chance.Larson is one of 12 drivers with victories this year locked into the 16-driver Chase with races left at Darlington and Richmond before the field is set.Chris Buescher has a win but isnt locked in yet because he is just seven points ahead of David Ragan for 30th in the standings. A driver with a win must finish in the top 30 in points to earn a spot.Assuming Buescher can remain in the top 30, that leaves three spots available to winless drivers who are the best in points. Chase Elliott is the best, six points ahead of Austin Dillon and six more ahead of Ganassi driver Jamie McMurray.McMurray has a 15-point lead on Ryan Newman, the first driver on the outside looking in. If Buescher falls out of the top 30, Newman would be next in line with a 37-point lead on Kasey Kahne for the final spot. Of course, there could be fewer than three winless drivers in the Chase if a winless driver wins at Darlington or Richmond.[Getting two in] was the goal at the beginning of the season, Ganassi said. We still have some work to do. We got Jamie in [at this point], but just by the skin of his teeth. Weve got to work on that with two [races] to go now.Thats what we do. Thats what we try to do every day.McMurray finished eighth at Michigan. It was the fifth top-10 finish for him in the past seven races.You just have to get the most points you can and try to win, McMurray said.While Larson is gearing up for his first Chase, McMurray is looking to compete in his second playoff, having qualified for it through points for the first time last year.From where we started our year to where our cars are now, weve made a lot of progress, McMurray said. Props to those guys. ... Weve just got to work hard to get the best finishes we can the next two weeks and we both can get into the Chase.Xfinity Series: Michael McDowell gets that first winMichael McDowell had competed in 297 national series events, and he got his first win Saturday. Having started his career as a road course racer, McDowell has fought the urge to go back to full-time road racing to concentrate on a Sprint Cup career.He had opportunities driving for Joe Gibbs Racing to potentially get a win in the past, but he wasnt able to capitalize. The win Saturday at Road America came while driving for Richard Childress Racing.Its been a long road, McDowell said. It definitely is a check the box [moment] -- this is what I came into the sport to do. There have been a lot of road racers and have come and won on the road courses but really struggle on the ovals.I didnt want to become a NASCAR road race ringer. I wanted to become a NASCAR driver. To do that and to be here still and to be competitive on the ovals and to win on a road course is really awesome.McDowell is the primary Cup driver for RCR affiliate Leavine Family Racing, the team Childress grandson Ty Dillon runs select races for during the year.It means a tremendous amount [to me], McDowell said. Ive been so close here at Road America for a few years. To be able to finally finish it off and close it off was huge.Starting on the pole in 2011 and second in 2012, McDowell led a combined 34 laps at the track and felt he saw some chances to win slip away. Hes had three runner-up finishes in his Xfinity career, as well as a pair of thirds.Its hard to watch replays or watch videos. ... Now, Ill be able to go back and watch this, and its going to be awesome, McDowell said.RCR has won the past three races at Road America with three different drivers -- Brendan Gaughan, Paul Menard and McDowell.Camping World Truck Series: Brett Moffitt arrivesBrett Moffitt won the 2015 Sprint Cup rookie title and had little to show for it at the start of 2016, a year he started on the couch with no ride thanks to Michael Waltrip Racing shutting down after last season.Competing in just his fourth race of the year and sixth Trucks event of his career, Moffitt earned his first career national series win Saturday at Michigan thanks to his last-lap pass of Red Horse Racing teammate Timothy Peters for the lead.Moffitt finished second a week earlier to Ben Kennedy, who had started the year driving the Red Horse Racing No. 11 Toyota. Kennedy went to GMS Racing after the third race of the year, and the organization has used a variety of drivers in the seat.Winning is awesome, no matter what the circumstance is, Moffitt said. Last week finishing second was really frustrating for me because I knew I had a short timetable to get the job done.The 24-year-old Moffitt has been in the truck for three races in place of Matt Tifft, who is out after having brain surgery for a tumor earlier this summer. This race was an open one on the No. 11 schedule.Moffitt only has one race left on his current schedule, next Sunday in the No. 11 truck at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Mosport).I knew everyone was impressed with the runs we were having and really happy, but for my sake, I needed to go out there and win. ... Hopefully some more doors open down the road, Moffitt said. Dion Phaneuf Jersey .

Bobby Ryan Jersey . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that.

Mitchell Starcs leg wound is still open. He will require a special knee pad to be able to dive in the field. And he is more than 10 days behind where he would prefer to be in preparation for the first Test of the summer, against South Africa in Perth - the match all Cricket Australias intricate preparatory plans are meant to be geared for.Thats the challenging scenario for the man who has swiftly become Australias most valuable cricketing asset. His pace and swing are capable of unpicking the lock to a South African batting line-up that toyed with Steven Smiths team on the recent ODI tour in Starcs absence.For that reason, there is no question of Starc missing out on a match that will set the tone for the home season, and a series against opponents who will test the resolve of the hosts to perform in familiar climes after humiliations in Sri Lanka and South Africa. The training-inflicted gash to the leg that Starc is still recovering from mirrors the sense that this is an Australian side yet to take complete form after 2015s raft of retirements.Its still open, clean it every day, put a patch on it and away you go, Starc said of his left leg. Its still a little bit opened, so its probably going to take a couple of weeks [to heal]. Its not bleeding, its healing nicely. Its all clean. I think when I started bowling and running again it just sort of stretched the skin a little bit. Its not a bad thing, it needed to stretch anyway. But it probably just delayed the healing a little bit.[Without the injury] I would have obviously played a couple of Matador games and played the full Shield game as well. So Im probably - hard to say, probably a week or week-and-a-half behind where I would have liked to be. Being in a brace for four weeks - I couldnt sweat on the wound, so I couldnt run or do all of the gym sessions I wanted to do. So I was a fair bit behind at the start and tried to catch up at the end.Im still a little bit behind where I would have liked but it hasnt cost me any cricket for Australia so Im ready to go.Echoing the views of the CA chief executive James Sutherland on the need to prioritise some series above others, Starc said he would be prepared to push through pain and even a re-opening of the wound in order to bowl the kinds of spells his captain requires. That being said, it is hard to imagine Starc being used as anything other than a high-speed battering ram in three to five-over spells after the fashion of Mitchell Johnson.Im happy to bowl long spells, its going to be up to Steve, Starc said. Im prepared to play the Test match and perform any role I need to. Obviously thats initially to bowl as fast as I can and try to attack the South Africans. Its not going to be an issue for me to bowl longer spells, its just how Smithy sees my role on the day, and the conditions, the wicket and the other guys in the team.I guess in the longer sccheme of things it hasnt been that long a break.dddddddddddd Obviously coming off two months of cricket in Sri Lanka - its not like Ive come off six months of nothing. It is a little bit behind, but I was a lot happier with how I finished the Shield game the other night after 19 overs. A couple more days of preparation this week and Ill be ready to go full tilt.While South Africas batting coach Neil McKenzie has had a bit to say about the visitors not fearing any members of the Australian line-up, Starc said he knew there would always be some trepidation among opponents about facing him. Easy for him to say that, sitting behind the desk, Starc quipped. Im happy for him to face me.Hes entitled to his opinions. Its a lot easier making comments like that when you dont have to face anything. He just throws the whanger down at his batsmen and sits back and watches. Look, well all be trying to crank it up. Ill be trying to bowl as fast as I can and Josh can still hit over 140s, Joey [Mennie] bowls a heavier ball than you think and can hurry up a lot of batsmen. He probably bowls a lot quicker than people think.Sidds is coming back into some pace as well. Weve got plenty of firepower. Just because theyve got Dale Steyn - I know hes an outstanding bowler, hes taken 400-plus Test wickets - [but] just because youve got him and [Kagiso] Rabada bowling fast it doesnt mean we dont have anyone to match that.One of the ironies of Starcs current physical impediment is that he may actually be in his best ever shape to play all six Tests, against South Africa and Pakistan, this summer. Until December last year, when he finally submitted to surgery on foot and ankle problems, Starc had suffered from ankle bone spurs. A full season is chief among his goals.Id love to play a whole summer for a change, whether it be through rotation or injury or bad form I havent managed to do that yet, Starc said. So I think I just put that on myself really, to be there for all six Tests and bowling well enough to be selected for all of those Test matches along with the one-day games this summer.I think thats part of it as well - being there for a little bit of time now with Josh. We probably take it on ourselves to - along with Pete coming back into the squad after his back - its probably important for the three of us especially to I guess lead the attack. I think we do that really well together.Theres not really one leader, we just sort of run off the back of each other and have done for a while. Wed all love to play every Test match this summer, along with the Indian series. Without talking too much about it, we probably put that on ourselves.Should Starc play six Tests, Australia will be hard to stop. This week may be the highest hurdle to that goal.
