How do you get new people, sponsors, and owners paying attention? While his fall contained two hiccups in the form of restarts over the final 15 laps, he ended up finishing seventh.

The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season has developed an abundance of storylines and poignant topics, but none seem to have taken the spotlight as much as the success of the next generation of Cup drivers.
Kyle Busch was leading before a caution came out for debris on Lap 181.
"We've been so close to so many other wins", Larson said.
That leaves Elliott with a little extra pressure entering MI this weekend, a track where he ran second twice a year ago. Day will run with BK Racing next weekend at Sonoma and becomes the first Israeli to reach NASCAR's top level.
Michigan International Speedway is the next stop for the MENCS circuit, and theres a chance another driver could visit victory lane for the first time in the FireKeepers Casino 400 on Sunday. "We're hoping that in the next couple of weeks we could take that next step".
Larson started from the pole, led 96 of the 200 laps and won a five-lap shootout to give himself a Father's Day present. Everyone else is more than 100 points behind. Place Differential is going to be huge in finding value this week, especially in cash games. Starting from the pole is going to be a big deal. Kenseth, who was battling Larson for the lead, pit on Lap 107 and overshot his pit loosing six-seconds on pit road. Elliott was second in both MI races previous year, and again this time. The victor, John Hunter Nemechek, cried in Victory Lane because his team might not even have enough money to finish out the year.
Joey Logano finished third in the No. 22 Shell Pennzoil Ford for Team Penske. But with two wins, Bell is all but assured of a playoff spot. He hasn't finished outside the top 10 at MIS in over four years and is the defending champion of the FireKeepers Casino 400.
Three years ago, Martin Truex Jr. led a total of just one lap in the Cup Series. Truex is first in the standings, one point ahead of Larson.
Full-time drivers who have run every race this season without leading a single lap: David Ragan, Matt DiBenedetto, and Jeffrey Earnhardt. It is also nice to see Truex Jr's price drop $300 this week at a track he has done well at in the past.
Logano, who announced after the race he and wife Brittany are expecting their first child next January, made that excitement very apparent in his post-race press conference at the two-mile track. The Byron, Mich., native was also the fastest qualifying rookie. "So, I've really got to thank him a ton". He has zero negative place differential value and showed mid 20's speed in the final practices.
Patrick now sits 30th in NASCAR standings. "It stinks when you have to race that way". "He uh, he said "Daddy good job!" which was really cool and said "ka-chow" which was awesome as well".
