The Cup Series race at New Hampshire turned out to be another disappointing night for 2019 Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch, who is still seeking his first 2020 Cup win.
Only six races are left into the regular season and the 2019 Champion hasn’t won one yet. Although he sits above the playoff cut-off line, the race at New Hampshire was another missed opportunity to feature for the playoff by the virtue of having won a race.
Busch didn’t finish the race due to a blown right-front tire. After the race, Busch said:
“I blew a right-front tire for some reason. I have no idea why. Way too early in the going for anything to be wrong or even to build enough brake temp or brake heat. I don’t know. Just hate it for our Pedigree team and the fight that we’ve been having this year seems to be continuing. Last time I was here in a Pedigree car, we blew a right-front tire for no reason as well too. Just seems to be our luck with the Pedigree scheme for some reason here at New Hampshire. It’s still 2020, but sooner or later we have to turn this stuff around.”
