LAT PHOTOGRAPHIC – Kyle Busch has been dominant at Auto Club Speedway in current years.
In Saturday’;s NASCAR Nationwide Series TreatMyClot.com 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Elliott Sadler have the possibility to reach double digits for Joe Gibbs Racing as the staff goes for its 10th consecutive race win at Auto Club Speedway.
In February 2008, Tony Stewart, in his last season with Joe Gibbs Racing, gave group owner Joe Gibbs his first victory at the 2-mile track in Fontana.
What happened next was unprecedented and not like something else anybody had witnessed ahead of in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. JGR’;s drivers reeled off win after win at the track found about an hour east of Los Angeles. In March 2013, Busch took house the most recent trophy at Automobile Club for JGR’;s ninth straight win.
In between Stewart’;s 2008 and Busch’;s victory final season, Joey Logano captured 2 checkered flags at the track while Busch claimed the other 6. Stewart and Logano have considering that moved on to other organizations and have been replaced by NASCAR Nationwide title contender Sadler, who is at present fifth in the series standings, and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series typical Kenseth.

Even though Sadler has in no way won a NNS event at the track — his very best outcome is a pair of fifth-location finishes — he was victorious in the Sept. 2004 Sprint Cup race.
Kenseth has compiled 4 victories at the track in the NNS, most lately in February 2004. He has also visited the track’;s Victory Lane 3 times in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. All 6 of his wins came with Roush Fenway Racing – the crew he left to come to JGR prior to the 2013 season.
