Rainy Daytona Turns Team Interstate’s World Upside-Down

July 7th, 2014 by
A 26-car accident on lap 97 left Kyle "shiny side up" on the track. He was not hurt and was joking around on the radio after the accident.

A 26-car accident on lap 97 left Kyle “shiny side up” on the track. He was not hurt and was joking around on the radio after the accident.

It was wrong place, wrong time for Kyle Busch in Sunday’s rain-postponed NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coke Zero 400 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Kyle’s No. 18 Interstate All Battery Center Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing was one of several cars caught up in a multicar melee on the backstretch on lap 97. The incident, which started in front of Kyle, collected the No. 18 and sent him spinning before he rolled upside down and landed on his roof on the apron of the racetrack. After workers turned his green and white striped car back over, he was unable to drive it back to the garage.

Watch the accident and Kyle’s reaction below:

Kyle was uninjured in the 26-car incident, but the No. 18 was too heavily damaged to continue the race. He was relegated to a 28th-place finish.

“It just felt like a slow carnival ride,” said Kyle, who won this race in 2008. “I guess that’s fitting for the Fourth of July weekend – but not here in Daytona. It’s just unfortunate. I don’t have any clue what happened. Somebody got squirrelly. I saw the 5 (Kasey Kahne) turn sideways across the field there and then all chaos ensued thereafter.

“The Interstate All Battery Center Camry was in a good position much of the day and I thought we had a shot to end up decent, and we were just kind of playing it out, seeing what the weather was going to do. I just hate that’s how our day ended.”

Kyle’s Team Interstate companions – Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 Toyota Camry, and Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Toyota Camry – finished sixth and 20th, respectively.

Aric Almirola won the rain-shortened Coke Zero 400 to score his first career Sprint Cup victory.
