Interstate Batteries driver Kyle Busch won the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday in Fontana, California. This is his second win of the season.
He has won back-to-back races. He has not won two straight since winning three straight in April 2018, as he won at Fort Worth, Bristol, and Richmond.
With Busch’s 200 wins in all three NASCAR’s platforms, he tied Richard Petty’s record.
The Joe Gibbs Racing employee was the only Toyota in the Top 5. He led 134 of the 200 laps.
AAA of Southern California driver Joey Logano was the runner-up. He led three laps in his Ford.
Wurth driver Brad Keselowski was the second Roger Penske driver in the Top 3 with Logano. He also led 42 laps.
Joe Gibbs Racing’s FedEx Express driver Denny Hamlin led eight laps. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Farmer John driver Aric Almirola led seven laps.
Hendrick Motorsports’ Axalta driver William Byron also led three laps. Team Penske’s PPG driver Ryan Blaney led two laps. Jack Roush’s Fastenal driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led one lap.
Only one driver did not complete the race. Stewart-Haas Racing’s Rush Truck Centers/Haas Automation driver Clint Bowyer had overheating problems and left the race on Lap 130.
