Tires caused Kurt to go a lap down running on threads allowed the leaders to lap him after he was leading. But then something happened. A caution came out and for once in a long time Kurt got a break, and may have had a chance for a win or at least a good finish. Then.... Kyle spins, Kurt with know where to go damages the car and is out of the race. I guess that is just racing.
If it weren't for bad luck Kurt wouldn't have any luck at all. Many may say he deserves it, but at some point the guy deserves a break.
