Kyle Busch was the biggest free agent acquisition in the off-season. He has already gold with Richard Childress Racing.
Busch won the Pala Casino 400 on Sunday at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. At this time, it could be the final race at this venue.
The Lucas Oil drive led 27 laps during the 200-lap race. He now has 61 career NASCAR Cup Series wins.
The 38-year-old tied his win total for the 2022 season during the second race of the season. Busch won the Food City Dirt Race on April 17th, 2022, at Bristol Motor Speedway Dirt Track in Bristol, Tennessee.
He drove the MARS Crunch Cookie entry to Victory Lane. This was also his final win with Joe Gibbs Racing.
NAPA Auto Parts driver Chase Elliott finished second. He rebounded following a horrible showing in the Daytona 500, as he finished 38th due to a crash.
Elliott made it through lap 118 when he was caught up in a crash with Legacy Motor Club Guns N’ Roses driver Erik Jones.
Kubota driver Ross Chastain finished third. He led a race-high 91 laps before rounding out the Top 3 for the Trackhouse Racing car.
Fellow Trackhouse Racing driver Daniel Suarez finished fourth in his Freeway Insurance entry. Stewart Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick rounded out the Top 5 with his fifth-place finish in his Gearwrench entry.
