A dramatic final three laps spelled heartbreak for one Team Interstate driver and elation for another.

Sunday’s Windows 10 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway saw many cautions during the first half of the race, but after the race went green on lap 97, the rest of the distance went caution-free. That long green-flag run set up a fuel-mileage race to the finish.

Kyle Busch pitted for the final time 37 laps from the end of the race, on lap 123, as did Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. Team Interstate’s Matt Kenseth, running fourth, pitted one lap later.

Kyle chased Joey as the laps ticked off, with Kyle’s crew chief, Adam Stevens, confident that the M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry had enough fuel to make it to the end. With a little over two laps to go, Joey ran out of fuel, handing Kyle the lead.

Kyle took the white flag and was poised to score his fourth consecutive Sprint Cup victory – but he ran out of fuel halfway through the final lap. Matt’s later pit stop proved to be the difference as he passed Kyle and picked up his second win of the season. Kyle limped to the start/finish line and was finally credited with a 21st-place finish.

“Man, that’s a bummer. I wish I would’ve saved a little more there that last run,” Kyle said after the race. “We got greedy. I don’t know how greedy, but that’s the position we’re in. If it came down to other things that we haven’t had the success that we’ve had here lately, we would’ve had to have pitted and just made the opportunity of it and made the best finish that we could. But, we went for broke today and came up a little bit short, so can’t fault the team.”

For those fans watching Kyle’s Chase chances, the No. 18 driver gained ground and only has 13 points left before his spot in the Chase is secured.
