2014 Toyota/SaveMart 350: More tough times for JGR

See also

More tough times hit Joe Gibbs Racing on the road course at Sonoma Raceway in California, as Kyle Busch came home as the top-finishing JGR driver in 25th. Denny Hamlin finished just behind Busch in 26th, while Matt Kenseth’s day ended on Lap 74 of 110 after a wreck with Dale Earnhardt Jr. left him in 42nd.

Busch, who started 20th in the No. 18 M&Ms Pretzel Toyota Camry, and Hamlin, in the No. 11 FedEx Freight Toyota, both spent time in the top 10 at different points of the race before falling back. Kenseth, in the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota, ranked as high as third in the race before his tangle with Earnhardt Jr.

“On the restart we were side-by-side and I got him going into (turn) seven and left him plenty of room when we were racing side-by-side,” said Kenseth post-race. “He tapped me on my right rear and wrecked me. I don’t know if he got out of the groove with his car -I don’t really know what happened and it doesn’t matter at this point. Unfortunately it ended our day.”

The Sprint Cup Series, along with the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series, visit Kentucky Speedway next weekend, Thursday through Saturday, June 26th through 28th. Keep up with the action at
