Team Interstate: Denny Narrowly Misses Daytona 500 Victory
Team Interstate’s Denny Hamlin had the car to beat all weekend at Daytona International Speedway but came up just short of victory in NASCAR‘s premiere event Sunday, the Daytona 500.
Teammates Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch also showed their strength during the rain-delayed event, with Matt finishing sixth and Kyle finishing 19th after a wreck on the final lap.
Both Denny and Matt started near the front of the field, but Kyle started in the 37th position. He didn’t let that slow him down, however – Kyle climbed to ninth by just the third lap of the 200-lap race. On lap 38, Kyle was in the lead when soaking rains entered the area, delaying the race by more than six hours.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the Daytona 500.
