It's been a rough early go of it for the Joe Gibbs Racing engine department. JGR teammates Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin will start at the back of the field for Sunday's Subway 500 at Phoenix International Raceway after each team changed engines.
It's the second weekend of engine issues for the JGR team. Last week at Daytona, both Matt Kenseth and Busch fell out of the 500 while leading within laps of each other because of engine issues.
Hamlin's engine let go during practice on Saturday at Phoenix and on Sunday while testing the engine during normal morning procedures, Busch's team had an issue and decided to change the rocker arm. Busch won Saturday's Nationwide race in a JGR car.
And you know who else knows Trouble? Taylor Swift. So I present "I Knew You Were Trouble When You Revved Up," set, to the tune of Swift's current hit and not-at-all-catchy "I Knew You Were Trouble."
Once upon a time a few engines ago
The 500 was in our sights, we were leading it
You blew up, you blew up,
