Busch Brothers Both Wreck At Kansas Speedway
Kyle Busch and his big brother Kurt both crashed in Saturday morning practice for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway.
Neither driver was hurt but there was enough damage to both race cars to force them to both go to backup cars for Sunday’s race.
By switching to backup cars, both drivers must start Sunday’s race from the rear. Based on Friday’s qualifying times, Kyle was originally scheduled to start 18th and Kurt 19th.
Other Chase for Championship contenders had trouble during practice too. Just before the Saturday morning practice ended, points leader Matt Kenseth spun out but did not hit anything. Similarly, in Friday’s practice session, Jimmie Johnson spun off of turn four but kept his car from hitting the wall.
