Kyle Busch Rallies To Win At California

Kyle Busch celebrates his win at California (Getty Images)

Five Sprint Cup races so far this season and five different winners.  Kyle Busch came from the back of the pack during a green-white-checkered finish to win at Auto Club Speedway in California, just holding off Kyle Larson who came in second. It was a reverse of what happened the day before in the Nationwide race when Larson stayed in front of both Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick over the final 12 laps for his first career Nationwide win.

Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart completed the Top 5.

Tire problems plagued drivers all day and it ended the hopes of Jimmy Johnson who had a two second lead with seven laps to go when his left front tire blew up.  He had led 104 of the 200 laps, but finished 24th.

Jeff Gordon inherited the lead when Johnson was forced to pit, but a spin by Clint Bowyer brought out the yellow flag setting up the two lap finish.  Just two laps away from a win, Gordon ended up finishing 14th.

Carl Edwards takes over the points lead, one up on Dale Earnhardt, Jr.  Martinsville Speedway is up next.
