Kyle Busch rebounds from wreck

Reid Spencer - NASCAR Wire Service Monday, Sep 22 1708

On Lap 188 of Sunday’s Sylvania 300, Kyle Busch was the innocent victim of a teammate’s spin, but, like Earnhardt, Busch recovered to maintain a solid position in the standings entering the elimination race at Dover.

Matt Kenseth’s Toyota got loose off Turn 2 and nicked the Chevrolet of Jamie McMurray, and that started a chain reaction that damaged the cars of Busch and Kasey Kahne.

"Kensth was trying to race with the guy in front of him to pass him and got loose,” Busch said. “I checked up, but not quick enough. I hit him, but then the guy behind me (Kahne), he just drove right through me. He couldn’t see what was going on in front of me. ...

“We kept working on it, kept fighting on it and put fresh tires on it every chance we could get, and we came back for a really good finish (eighth), all things considered—and how bad it could have been.”
