Toyota expresses regret over the playoff exit of Kyle Busch

Speaking about Busch’s exit from championship contention, Toyota’s David Wilson addressed the media and expressed his thoughts on the situation. The Toyota boss opened up on the multiple engine failures they’ve experienced this season with Kyle Busch, something which is a surprise considering they had 0 failures last season.

“Two engine failures across three weeks is unheard of,” he said “It’s unacceptable.”

Wilson described that they have found “an instability” in their valve train, which, according to them, was triggered by NASCAR’s mandated rev limiter. However, he reassured that “there’s no question” that NASCAR and the teams are looking into the issue and will definitely fix it in the future.
