Busch wins NNS race at Auto Club Speedway

-

Kyle Busch rallied back from a speeding penalty on Saturday in the NASCAR Nationwide Series CampingWorld.com 300 and won his fourth career race at Auto Club Speedway.

Busch started from the pole and led four times for 38 of the 150 laps run and extended his series record setting 12th NNS victory of the season.

His crew got him out front on the final pit stop of the day.

“These guys did an awesome job for me today.  Pit road probably won this race, so I can’ t thank these guys enough.” Busch said.

Kevin Harvick led a race-high 86 laps, but his pit crew set him back twice and in the final pit stop he lost four positions.  Harvick finished third.

“Obviously, we’ve got to take that next step on pit road because they’re just doing a terrible job. That’s not what our operation is all about. If they can’t stand the pressure, they better find something else to do.” Harvick said.

Brad Keselowski finished second and extended his lead in the series point standings to 384 points.

Danica Patrick qualified 14th and was heading to a top-15 finish when she was spun out late in the race.  Clearly frustrated, Patrick finished in 30th place.

“The frustrating part is that I feel like we had a really good car on those last two restarts.  I got into the car that spun on the lap before, but I didn’t mean to. Next time, I got pretty close, but I came off and gave him room. Looking at the replay, it looks like it could have been avoidable.” Patrick said.

Next week the NASCAR Nationwide Series moves to Charlotte Motor Speedway on ESPN2 Friday, October 15.
