FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - Kyle Busch took advantage of two poor pit stops by Kevin Harvick's crew and rallied from a speeding penalty for his record-extending 12th Nationwide Series victory of the year Saturday at Auto Club Speedway.
Busch, the polesitter, had the best car on the restarts, but Harvick was better on the long runs in the 300-mile race.
Harvick's crew negated any long-run success he was having, bumbling two pit stops to knock him out of the lead twice.
Busch had a pit-road problem of his own and dropped to 15th after being penalized for speeding, but quickly worked his way back to the front and pulled way in a final five-lap dash after a wreck took out Danica Patrick.
Points leader Brad Keselowski was second, and Harvick finished third.
