Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 18 team pulled out a back-up Toyota for last week’s Sprint Cup winner Kyle Busch after he glanced off the wall during NASCAR Sprint Cup practice on Friday at Kansas Speedway.
Busch had completed just four laps in first practice before hitting the wall exiting Turn 2. Busch’s fastest lap was 180.644 mph.
The team unloaded the backup car just 20 minutes into practice.
Busch is second in the Sprint Cup points standings, trailing Jimmie Johnson by 18 points.
