Team Interstate: Kyle Busch Wins in Kentucky
Saturday night’s win at the Quaker State 400 was Kyle’s 31st career Sprint Cup Series victory, his second of the season and second at Kentucky. He’s now won two out of the last three races, with Kentucky being just his seventh start of the season after returning from injury.
“It was fun; certainly when you have a great racecar like that, it makes it nothing but fun,” Kyle said. “(Crew chief) Adam Stevens and these guys gave me a great M&M’s Crispy Toyota Camry; it was really, really awesome.”

With the win and leading the most laps, Kyle scored the race-maximum 48 points, vaulting him closer to the top-30 in series points. Kyle must be in the top-30 in points with at least a win by Sept. 12 to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.
Kyle’s Team Interstate companions also performed well Saturday, finishing third, fourth and fifth. This marks the first time all four Team Interstate cars have placed within the top-five in the same race.
