Toyota also had issues three races ago at Atlanta, where four engines had problems. Hamlin suffered two engine failures that weekend _ one in Saturday practice, one in the race, Vickers lost an engine on Friday, and Clint Bowyer’s failed while leading in the race.
“I’m not sure about Atlanta. I know we were trying some new stuff there, something for next season, something to use later in the Chase. I know there was a little bit of experimenting in Atlanta,” Kenseth said.
“When you get to the race track, you can’t do a lot about it so you concentrate on the things you can control and try to help that as much as you can and go from there.”
RIDE FOR CANCER RESEARCH: IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay will participate in the annual Dolphins Cycling Challenge as part of Team AutoNation to support cancer research.
The two-day cycling ride Nov. 2-3 is a collaborative effort between the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, with 100 percent of rider-raised funds going directly to cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Hunter-Reay lost his mother to colon cancer in 2010 and has been committed to raising funds for cancer research through Racing for Cancer, which he co-founded. AutoNation is a presenting sponsor of Racing for Cancer.
“Nearly one-third of cancer is said to be preventable and with early detection, many more cancers can be caught in their early stages saving lives,” said Hunter-Reay. “Our goal is to create an awareness of the importance of getting tested.”
The Bill France 4 Crown is a miniseries within the ARCA season that challenges drivers on four different types of courses. This season’s 4-Crown schedule included a superspeedway event at Michigan International Speedway, a road course at New Jersey Motorsports Park, a mile dirt oval at Springfield and a short track at Salem.
“I’ve always put that pretty high on the list,” he said. “First of all the namesake of the thing, Bill France, that’s a big deal and pretty awesome he’s part of that thing. It’s such a diverse set of tracks.”
