Busch claimed his 200th NASCAR win of his career by capturing the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday. The win did not come easily, as a untimely pit lane speeding penalty set Busch behind after the end of stage two. However, a yellow flag on lap 164 and a choice to stay on the track while the leaders pitted for tires and fuel turned out to be a good one for Busch. With new tires, Busch restarted in second on lap 166 and took the lead from Joey Logano on lap 175. Busch never looked back.

“Feels just like number one. Feels just like yesterday. To win 200, I mean, whatever it means, it means a lot to me. It means a lot to all my guys, everybody at Joe Gibbs Racing. It’s an amazing opportunity to drive for Joe Gibbs. I cherish every minute of it, love it always,” Busch stated after his win on Sunday.

Penske teammates Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski finished in second and third respectively on Sunday, while Kevin Harvick and Ryan Blaney made it four Fords in the top five behind Toyota’s Kyle Busch. The highest finishing Chevrolet was Kyle’s older brother Kurt Busch in sixth.

The Monster Energy Cup Series heads to Martinsville, VA next weekend for the STP 500. The race takes the green flag Sunday, March 24th at 2pm on Fox Sports 1.
