FONTANA, Calif. (AP) Kyle Busch is trying to tie Richard Petty's NASCAR record of 200 victories when he hits the track at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday.
Busch earned his 199th career victory across NASCAR's three major series last week at Phoenix, and the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driver is in position to match Petty's hallowed mark at Fontana.
Busch missed his first chance Saturday when he finished second to Cole Custer in the Xfinity Series race, falling victim to a bad pit stop in a race he had dominated.
Stewart-Haas Racing and Hendrick Motorsports are still looking for their first wins of the season under NASCAR's new racing rules package. Jimmie Johnson has won six times at Fontana, but hasn't won anywhere since mid-2017.
