Kyle Busch took the win in Saturday’s Nationwide series race, edging Greg Biffle by less than a car length. Brad Keselowski took the last podium spot, finishing third. Joey Logano dominated the race, leading 130 of 152 laps but ultimately finishing in fifth spot.

Danica Patrick , who started in the 35th position, was never a factor in Saturday’s race. She finished three laps down, in 31st position and was the first driver lapped by the field. Two penalties for pit lane speed violations did nothing to help her effort.

In Sprint Cup racing, Jimmie Johnson took the win in Sunday’s Auto Club 500 in Fontana, California. Kevin Harvick took second, with Jeff Burton finishing third. The race was delayed by rain at around lap 200, and there were six cautions for a total of thirty laps. Juan Pablo Montoya looked to be a serious contender for the win in the early stages, but was sidelined with an engine failure after leading the first 29 laps.
