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.

Kevin Harvick is the type of driver in NASCAR that they call the Closer.

He hangs around in the top 10 and then makes his move when the time is right late in the race.

Such was the case at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California this past weekend, when he over took Sprint Cup kingpin, Jimmy Johnson.

Kyle Busch was the dominant driver and had the dominating car leading a race-high 151 laps.

Johnson, a five-time winner at Fontana, chased down Busch for the lead with two laps to go.

Then Harvick went low, when Johnson went high on a turn to win at the finish.

Busch finished third, Matt Kenseth finished fourth and Ryan Newman took fifth.

Kyle Busch’s pit strategy late in the Nationwide race at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, allowed him to take the lead and hold off Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick to win the race.

Edwards and Harvick traded leads for most of the 150-lap race before deciding to get four tires on their final pit stop with less than 20 laps left.

Busch, however, waited until only 13 laps to go, and decided to get two tires, putting him ahead after leaving pit road.

Busch survived a final-lap bump into the wall, to win for the fifth time in his past six races at Fontana.

Busch, one of NASCAR’S controversial and volatile drivers, won at Bristol last week, has won three of five Nationwide races and has 46 wins in his career, two behind Mark Martin on the all-time list.
