Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch led the three-car Team Interstate contingent Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway by finishing second in the Quaker State 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. It was his fourth top-five and seventh top-10 finish this season. Teammate Matt Kenseth finished fourth, and Denny Hamlin finished 42nd after a blown tire sent his No. 11 Toyota Camry into the outside wall on lap 27.

Kyle, driver of the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota, said he, crew chief Dave Rogers and the rest of the No. 18 team rolled up their sleeves and made wholesale changes to the car Friday evening after a mediocre qualifying effort.

“They did a great job for me this weekend,” said Kyle, who scored his third top-five finish in four starts at Kentucky. “We were a lot better than we’ve been all year long, and that’s a testament to what the guys did overnight fixing this M&M’s Camry into what I could drive today and making it fast. It was a long shot from where we’ve been this weekend.”

Kyle took the lead on lap 215 after a well-timed and well-executed pit stop as the caution waved for an accident. Kyle would lead the next 31 laps, but eventual race winner Brad Keselowski passed him with 19 laps to go. All Kyle could do was hold on to his loose-handling car and bring home a strong second-place finish.
