Everything you need to know: Quick facts for the Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan

Published Jun. 14, 2015 9:45 a.m. ET

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is spending the weekend in the Irish Hills of Michigan for the Quicken Loans 400, the 15th race of the 2015 season.

The biggest topic of conversation this weekend has centered on Martin Truex Jr.'s popular win last Sunday at Pocono Raceway and the future of Furniture Row Racing.

As has been the case for much of the 2015 season, defending Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick has had one of the fastest cars in the field, but the competition is not ready to let the Stewart-Haas Racing driver run away with things.

Here is everything you need to know for Sunday's race at Michigan International Speedway.
