However, while many worried about the participation of Busch in the main event on Sunday courtesy of supply issues and lack of cars, journalist Bob Pockrass reported that JGR had kept the incident of a wreck in mind and carried with them, a spare car.

The only problem was, the spare car seemed to belong to another JGR driver, Denny Hamlin.

In the picture that Pockrass tweeted, one can see “HAMLIN” written on the back of the spare Next Gen.

This amused many fans as they didn’t miss a beat in poking fun at Denny Hamlin. It turned out to be for Kyle Busch but many fans suggested how Joe Gibbs Racing knew from the start who’d be needing the spare.

“I went low off of 2 one time but never heard anything that I hit anything or anything like that. So just going down the backstretch felt it start to go down and just happened so fast it was too late to slow down and do anything,” he continued.

“Sucks for all the guys; that’s a backup car for sure. So, I hate it for everybody at Joe Gibbs Racing and what we’re trying to do here, parts crunch and everything else. But what do you do? When they don’t hold air, then you can’t make a corner.”

As a result of his wreck, and sitting out of the qualifying, Kyle Busch will start in 37th place on Sunday.
