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.

COST TO GO THE RACE: Prices are reduced on all grandstand seats, now $25 and up. Expanded general admission section with children younger than 12 getting in for free. Ages 12-17 get half-priced reserved seats.
