Road Proves Bumpy for Team Interstate

June 26th, 2012 by

Team Interstate racing wrap-up for June 22-24, 2012:

Joey Logano, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry, led Team Interstate by finishing 10th in the Toyota/Save Mart 350k NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at the 1.99-mile road course at Sonoma, Calif.

Logano’s Team Interstate companions, Kyle Busch in the No. 18 Toyota Camry and Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Toyota Camry, finished 17th and 35th, respectively. Busch and Hamlin were both victims of the same late-race accident on lap 93, which sent Hamlin to the garage for the remainder of the event while Busch, who had right-front damage from the accident, was able to salvage a top-20 finish.

“We were so patient for most of the race, so were all disappointed with the finish,” said Busch, who has one Sprint Cup win at Sonoma, which came in June 2008. “I don’t know what happened behind me coming into the hairpin, but the 11 (Denny Hamlin) ended up getting into my right front and we had a lot of damage. You can’t come in and fix it since you’ll lose too much time. All we could do is try to bring our M&M’s Camry home with the best finish we could. We were a top-four or five car, so it’s tough to take, for sure.”

With round 16 of 36 complete, Hamlin leads the JGR trio in the championship point standings. He dropped three spots to eighth with 523 points, 73 behind series leader Matt Kenseth. Busch maintained 12th with 459 points, 137 out of first. Logano remained 15th with 441 points, 155 away from the top spot.

NHRA Drag Racing: Edwards Reflects on Close Win

Mike Edwards celebrates his win in Bristol.

Mike Edwards won Bristol by less than a thousandth of a second.

Team Interstate’s Mike Edwards won in Bristol by the narrowest of margins. Officially, his win over Allen Johnson was 0.000 seconds, which equates to less than an inch. Edwards tells, “I guess I can truly say I won by a hair.”

According to NHRA, no other form of racing has produced a winner by less than one-hundredth of a second.

Edwards discusses the historic win on

Next week: NASCAR visits Kentucky Speedway, where Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch won last year. AMA Motocross takes a break until July 7, but many riders will compete in the X Games this weekend in Los Angeles. And NHRA drag racing roars to life in Chicago.
