Kyle Busch falls out of New Hampshire race early after contact with the wall

Kyle Busch, No. 8 Lenovo Camaro ZL1 – Sidelined by damage sustained after making contact with the wall in Stage One.

We knew you were struggling, but it was weird to us. Was there something on the track?

Busch: “No, I’ve been lacking right-rear grip the whole time we’ve been here. Just couldn’t get the right-rear feel in the race track. You’re just going along trying to keep it under you as much as you can. It was getting late in the run, and I was trying a different line and it was just too high. I didn’t like to be that high on entry. I couldn’t give it wheel and have the right-rear stick with the lateral grip that you need.

Hate it for our No. 8 Lenovo Chevy team. Our Chevy stuff was a little off this week, at least for us anyways. We’ll get back to it at Pocono (Raceway).”
