Clint Bowyer raced to his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season when Sunday's event at MI was called early because of rain.
On the following restart on lap 126, Bowyer had to hold off his Stewart Haas Racing teammate Kevin Harvick who had four tires and the faster auto. Fans who stuck around were treated to a very competitive race, even though the rain returned ultimately ending the race on lap 133.
Harvick finished second, and pole-position victor Kurt Busch finished third, completing a sweep of the top three spots for Stewart-Haas Racing. Toyota's Kyle Busch finished fourth while Chevrolet drivers Chase Elliott and Jamie McMurray took their Hendrick Motorsports and Ganassi Racing Chevrolets to ninth and 10th, respectively.
Blaney was the victor of the race's first stage. F1 regulations say that if a checkered flag is waved too early, the race is over as of the last completed lap, making the results official as through 68 laps. His most recent win was at Talladega last season. There is a Michigan Heritage Trophy that goes to the race- winning manufacturer for Cup weekend, too.
When the cars lined up to start Stage 2 after multiple pit stop strategies came into play, Kasey Kahne started up front, but Daniel Suarez spun and brought out another caution on Lap 67. Andrew Putnam started the final round with a share of the lead for the first time in his career. Bowyer's first win came earlier this year at Martinsville Speedway.
Those bragging rights belonged to Chevy a year ago, when Kyle Larson won both races at MIS.
Tournament officials delayed the start of the third round by almost five hours because of bands of light but persistent rain before calling the event.

He'll try to make it four in a row Sunday. He was 26th in qualifying.
Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick have combined to win nine of the 14 races this year on the Cup circuit.
For some drivers, that might be no big deal, but Keselowski is from Rochester Hills, about 90 miles from Michigan International Speedway. "To have this performance and strength across all of our teams, to win the race, it's just tremendous for all the company".
The weather could be an issue again Sunday.
