Repeats have been hard to come by at the two-mile track

Michigan International Speedway has been one of the tracks used by NASCAR's premier series since 1969 and with the exception of 1973, has hosted two races each year. Seven different times, the track has seen a driver win both races in a season at the 2-mile-long venue. Bobby Labonte was the last to do so in 1995. Before him, Bobby Allison (1971), David Pearson (1972 and 1976), Cale Yarborough (1983) and Bill Elliott (1985 and 1986) completed Michigan sweeps.
