Kenseth Wins Two in a Row

Filed under: NASCAR Articles — Scott Voight @ 2:53 pm

Kenseth’s win of the Auto Club 500 Sprint Cup race, at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana California marks only the fifth time a driver has won the first two events in a row to begin a Sprint Cup season. Jeff Gordon was the last to do this in 1997.

Kenseth who went winless last season began this season in grand fashion out running Jeff Gordon who was also winless last season. On lap 216 the pit crew gave Kenseth the lead and he never looked back. Gordon burned up the right front tire trying to catch Kenseth to no avail.

Kyle Busch finished third and fell short in his bid to sweep all three races in NASCAR’s top series at the same track in the same weekend, Greg Biffle finished fourth, followed by Kurt Busch. Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and Brian Vickers completed the top 10.
