Bummer For Busch

The good news for Kurt Busch is there are still nine races left in this year's Chase for the NEXTEL Cup.

Busch started his dreams of a second NEXTEL Cup Series championship on a down note with a 25th place finish in Sunday's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway.

Engine problems plagued the Penske Racing driver all day with the Miller Lite Dodge finally credited with a 25th place finish.

“We lost power and we tried to troubleshoot it the best that we could. It’s kind of tough to accept this one,” said Busch.

The problems dropped Busch to 12th and last in the standings.

"It would have been nice maybe at Charlotte where I don’t run so good to have a motor failure," he said. "It’s just tough. I guess, all in all, we finished 25th and it could have been more like 43rd."

Busch's crew chief Pat Tryson, who has been a part of the Chase in all four of the format's years, is hoping another former champion's performance can be inspiration for this team

"Jimmie Johnson didn’t start off so great last year, so maybe we can make up points like he did in the next nine and win this thing,” Tryson said.

Busch as well is trying to stay positive.

"It's kind of a bummer, but we worked hard to get in this Chase and we'll still work hard," he said. "This one is a big lump, but it didn't hurt us, so we'll see what happens."

"We’ll make it up. We’ll do the best we can. There is nothing you can do about problems. We got into this Chase by working hard and we’ll still do it."
