Team Interstate found its speed and opened the new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format in impressive fashion with three top-10 finishes in Sunday’s 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Denny Hamlin finished sixth, Kyle Busch seventh and Matt Kenseth 10th at the 1.5-mile oval.

“We were superfast early, superfast when the track was green and we were out front and we could run second or third and didn’t have a gaggle of cars around you,” said Kyle, who started his No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota from the pole position.

A pit-road incident on lap 148 left Kyle with a small hole in the left-rear corner of the No. 18 Toyota, dramatically affecting the handling. An opportune caution flag waved on lap 257, and Crew Chief Dave Rogers ordered Kyle down pit road for four fresh tires and a quick patch of the hole. With just six laps to go, Kyle restarted 14th but muscled his way forward thanks to the changes.

Brad Keselowski won the race, his fifth of the year.
