To the Brickyard

Sprint Cup Series

 

From Denny Hamlin

How did the test help you prepare for this weekend at Indianapolis?
“Any time you get the chance to test a track prior to a race weekend, you’ll learn some valuable information to bring back. We had a pretty good test at the track a few weeks back, and were able to go through a bunch of things to get us ready for this weekend. Indianapolis has such a great racing history, and our FedEx team was proud to start on the pole in the 400 last year. It was a great achievement for our race team and one that we can build off as we try to get to victory lane this year. The Brickyard is one of NASCAR’s signature events and hopefully our #11 FedEx Express Camry is up to the challenge on Sunday.”

2nd, 9th and 21st at New Hampshire

Kyle Busch would lead Joe Gibbs Racing with a second-place finish in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Camping World RV Sales 301 from New Hampshire Motor Speedway while teammate Matt Kenseth earned a top-ten finish taking the checkered flag in ninth and Denny Hamlin battled through adversity to finish 21st.

Busch started his No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota in the fourth position and wasted no time in jumping up into second at the initial start of the race. He would take his first lead of the day on lap 10 and would go on to lead the next 53 laps. Busch would race inside the top five for the majority of the day. Pit strategies would play a key part in determining track position as teams varied in taking either four, two, or no tires with each stop. A four-tire stop just after lap 200 would send him back outside the top 10 but two quick restarts allowed him to get the No. 18 Camry back to seventh by lap 217. The team would make a call for fuel only during a quick stop on lap 219 that put Busch in the 8th position on the restart. He would make a bit of contact with the 39 car on the restart which caused some damage to his right front fender, but Busch was still able to drive up into sixth before another quick caution followed. Fortunately the damage to the fender didn’t cause a tire rub and he would gain three more spots to take third in just two laps before yet another caution on lap 237. Busch would drive his way into the second position from there and was able to hold onto that spot through a green-white-checkered finish.
