Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry, led the three-car Team Interstate contingent Sunday at Dover (Del.) International Speedway by finishing third in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. It was Matt’s fifth top-five finish of the season and his 14th top-five in 31 career Sprint Cup starts at Dover.

Matt’s Team Interstate companions, Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Toyota Camry and Kyle Busch in the No. 18 Toyota Camry, finished fifth and 42nd, respectively.

Denny’s fifth-place effort was his third top-five this season and his third top-five in 17 career Sprint Cup starts at Dover.

Kyle, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s Peanut Butter/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry, was forced into the outside wall at lap 124. The damage to the racecar was too heavy for him to continue, ending his day early and relegating him to a 42nd-place finish. It was a disappointing result for Kyle, who started second and dominated the race early, leading the first 81 laps before dropping back to third in the running order. It was during that run at lap 28 that Kyle became just the 15th driver in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history to lead 10,000 laps. Kyle was battling for third place with Clint Bowyer, driver of the No. 15 car, on lap 124 when the race-ending incident happened.

The No. 15’s spotter, who also works for Team Interstate’s Elliott Sadler in the Nationwide Series, took responsibility for the incident, according to radio transmissions.

Matt’s third-place finish vaulted him into first place in the Sprint Cup Series points standings. Kyle’s 42nd-place finish dropped him to seventh in points.
