Count Kyle Busch amongst the 2015 winners in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The 30-year-old wins in a spectacular way on Sunday at the finish line.

In the first-ever 1-2 finish in the series by the Busch brothers, Kyle beat Kurt Busch to the finish line by .532 seconds to win for the first time since returning from an 11-race absence because of a broken right leg and left foot injured during a Feb. 21 accident at Daytona International Speedway.

On Lap 106  Kyle Busch muscled past Jimmie Johnson and took the lead on the way to his second victory at the 1.99-mile road course. It is the 30th win of his career. Johnson had stayed out on old tires while Busch joined a parade to pit road for new rubber after the left rear wheel assembly separated from Casey Mears’ car to cause the fifth and final caution of the race on Lap 99.

Usually every week, Kyle Busch is always a major challenger to win a race. But most fans may have forgotten but 46 races had passed since Kyle Busch last enjoyed Victory Lane in NASCAR’s premier series, including the 11 he missed because of the Daytona injuries. Busch last won at Fontana, Calif., on Mar. 23, 2014. The victory extends his streak of winning at least one race per year to 11 years.

The win gives Busch the chance he needs to qualify for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Busch also must finish in the top 30 in the series standings after 26 races in order to maintain his eligibility for NASCAR’s playoff.

With the win, Kyle is chasing Cole Whit for 30th-place with 10 races left in the regular season. Busch gained two positions in the standings to 37th, 136 points behind Whit.

Can Kyle catch Whit? Nothing is impossible for a person with the drive and determination of Kyle Busch. Don’t bet against him!

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.
