Kyle Busch Avoids Wreck, Wins in Fontana


FONTANA, Calif. Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano raced side by side into the final lap, two bitter rivals unwilling to give even an inch right up until they made contact with less than a mile to go.

Almost forgotten in the post-race frenzy was Busch, who led 125 of 200 laps in his Toyota and earned his first victory of the season when he sped past Hamlin and Logano on the final turn. Dale Earnhardt Jr. also ceded the spotlight, even though he moved into the Sprint Cup Series points lead with his second-place finish. …
