Sunday was fun, fun, fun on the race tracks at the Auto Club 400 NASCAR races in Fontana. NASCAR, founded by William France, Sr. in 1948 and with the help of several other noted drivers, included three distinct car divisions of: Modified, roadster, and strictly stock at the time.

Yesterday, however, Kyle Busch, Toyota, made history winning the Nationwide race for the second straight year, holding off a team of astonishing racers over the 206 laps.

Kyle Larson, Chevrolet, coming in at second place with only a fraction of 0.214 behind, followed by Kyle’s older brother Kurt Busch, Toyota, Matt Kenseth, Toyota, and Tony Stewart, Chevrolet. The atmosphere was exhilarating and the noise level nearly bearable, but the all-day event was well worth attending, which was confirmed by a sold-out house.

Unfortunately for many racers, the track was filled with flat tires and tire blow out’s, starting early after 18 lapses, when Kevin Harvick had a left-rear tire go down. But even though many drivers had tire issues, and most of the talk was about shredded tires, Kyle Busch and crew were blessed with none of this and ultimately could celebrate his second consecutive last-lap victory at Auto Club Speedway.
