By Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service FONTANA, Calif. – Thanks to Cole Custer, Kyle Busch will have to wait at least one more day. With a determined run to the finish in Saturday’s Production Alliance Group 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Auto Club Speedway, Custer kept Busch at bay after a restart with 20 laps left and thwarted Busch’s march toward 200 victories across NASCAR’s top three national series. In winning for the third time in his career and the first time at his home track, the Ladera Ranch, Calif.,Read More

It fit their bill as being one of the most chaotic weekends in NASCAR history. It didn’t matter how experienced a driver was on road racing because the Roval was a game of survival.

Even the best road racersRead More
