Two days after losing his NASCAR Sprint Cup points lead with a 20th-place finish at Talladega, Kenseth had the session-ending crash Tuesday during a week-delayed Texas test that includes the top eight drivers in the points standings.
"Well, it was up and down. It ended down,'' Kenseth said. ''We just had a tire problem and crashed, so we're done for the test. … When you run nine laps and one blows apart for no reason, that's always a cause for concern for sure."
