Sunday’s Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway was a race the drivers of Joe Gibbs Racing would rather forget.
None of the three Toyota’s raced out of the Gibbs stable survived the 400 miles. The trouble began on lap 103 when for the second race in a row Kyle Busch coasted his No. 18 to the garage with engine woes. A few laps later on lap 127, Joey Logano, who celebrated his second career win last week at Pocono, was caught up in a crash.
The most frightening moment for the Gibbs team came shortly after. Denny Hamlin who won the last two June races at Michigan, was involved in a crash on lap 134 when he spun through the grass coming out of turn 4. Hamlin’s car imploded as he rolled to pit lane and came to rest in a ball of fire. MORE>>>
