An otherwise spectacular day for Team Interstate left Kyle Busch in danger of missing the next round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship.

Matt Kenseth kept Team Interstate’s and Joe Gibbs Racing‘s momentum rolling by winning the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday. The win automatically advances Matt into the second round of the Chase with teammate Denny Hamlin, who won last week in Chicago. Denny finished Sunday’s race in second, while Carl Edwards finished fifth. Carl is third in the Chase points standings and is in great position to advance.

Kyle’s road to the next round isn’t as smooth. Despite running solidly in the top ten through the first half of the race, Kyle suddenly lost his right front tire on lap 160, sending him hard into the outside wall. The crash caused severe damage to the right side of his No. 18 Pedigree/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry. Fast repair work by the crew put Kyle back on the track just 36 laps later, enabling him to earn a 37th-place finish.

Despite Sunday’s setback, Kyle is just one point behind 12th and two points out of 11th place in the standings heading to Dover this week. Only the top 12 teams in points will advance to the Contender Round of the Chase after Dover.

“We can just chalk up today as bad luck. It just wasn’t our day,” Kyle said.” I’ve got to thank my guys for working so hard all weekend on this Pedigree Toyota, especially in the garage today so I could get back out and earn as many points as possible. We’ll move onto Dover knowing we’ve got another shot at bringing home a good finish and hopefully advancing to the next round.”

Look for Kyle in the No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry on Sunday.
