Team Interstate: Twists, Turns and Tangles at the Glen
The driver of the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing entered Sunday’s race with high hopes of scoring his third overall and second consecutive Sprint Cup Series win at the 2.45-mile, 11-turn road course. Instead, Kyle had a trying outing that saw him spend more than 20 laps in the garage for accident repairs after making contact with a fellow competitor at lap 27. Kyle was relegated to a disappointing 40th-place finish.
“It just wasn’t our day today. I don’t think there’s much more we can say,” Kyle said. “I give everybody on the M&M’s team a lot of credit, though, because they did what they could as a team to repair the car. We went back out there and tried to make the best of the situation. Hopefully, we were able to learn something that we will be able to use later in the year.”
Teammate Denny Hamlin saw a promising run slip away when he spun after a restart with just a few laps remaining. He would finish 24th on the day. Matt Kenseth battled throughout the day to score a 9th-place finish.
