Team Interstate: Bruised, Banged up — but not Beaten

September 22nd, 2014 by

To some, Team Interstate suffered a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day in New Hampshire. All three drivers were involved in significant accidents over the course of Sunday’s Sylvania 300 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

But the optimist would say this was the kind of day where championship teams are made.

Kyle Busch and his No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries team overcame a lap-187 accident to finish eighth, despite significant damage.

“We kept working on our M&M’s Camry, kept fighting and put fresh tires on it every chance we could get, and we came back for a really good finish all things considered – and how bad it could have been,” said Kyle, who earned his 11th top-10 finish of the season. “It still shows what our team is made of, so I’m proud of the effort.”


Misfortune also struck teammates Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin. Matt was caught up in an accident with only 30 laps to go and didn’t have time to execute a similar late-race charge back to a top 10. He would finish 21st. Denny was extremely fast through the early portion of the race, but a mechanical failure in the fuel apparatus put him several laps down, and an accident followed that sent him to the garage for repairs, leaving him to finish the day back in 37th.


Joey Logano won the Sylvania 300.

Kyle, Matt and Denny currently sit fifth, eighth and 13th in the point standings. The top 12 will advance to the next round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup after next Sunday’s race at Dover. Only 12 points currently separate eighth place from 16th, with Denny just six points out of 12th – so the next round is still very much within reach.
