Kyle Busch, Mr. Consistent as he is known by fans and media of NASCAR, won on Sunday for the second year in a row at Fontana, California’s Auto Club Speedway.

Always a threat to win any race, Busch had a wild two-lap sprint to the finish to hold off his older brother, Kurt, Kyle Larson and Tony Stewart.

He is the fifth different winner in five races in the Sprint Cup circuit this year.

Before the frantic finish, Jimmie Johnson was leading the race by a comfortable margin until he blew a tire with seven laps remaining. Then, Jeff Gordon took control until Clint Bowyer spun out causing a caution with two laps to go leading to an overtime finish.

Kyle Busch won his 29th career Sprint Cup race by using his veteran driving skills to block the 21-year-old rookie Larson to win an up-and-down race which saw 35 lead changes and several tire problems at the Auto Club 400.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads west on this Sunday to the San Francisco area for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, California.

Formerly known as Sears Point, Infineon Raceway is located just 35 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge and is surrounded by 100 wineries.

The elevation drops from 160 feet from Turn 4 on the track to Turn 10.

The asphalt track is 1.99-miles long.

The race is 219 miles which equals 110 laps. This is one of the smaller venues for a NASCAR event, with a crowd of only 47,000.

Jeff Gordon has won five times in 19 starts and leads the way as no other driver has won more than twice at the track in Cup events.

Infineon is a unique place. Almost 3,000 sheep call the place home. The raceway is home to a vineyard of Pinot noir vines. The vineyard, on a hillside near the track’s main office, opened in 2005. Since the 2006 race, the winning driver has sipped from the champion’s goblet in the Wine Country’s Winner’s Circle.

RECAPPING THE 2011 TOYOTA/SAVE MART 350 RACE: Kurt Busch’s first Sprint Cup victory on a road course came in a dominant way. He led the race in his Penske Dodge for 76 of the 110 laps. Gordon finished second ahead of Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer and Marcos Ambrose.
