Kenseth crashes during testing at Texas Motor Speedway

Matt Kenseth had his testing at Texas Motor Speedway cut short when he crashed his car because of an issue with his front right tire.

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."
