Kyle Larson gets first NASCAR Cup win of season at Auto Club 400 in Fontana – Los Angeles Times
Kyle Larson won the Auto Club 400 in overtime Sunday to give him a sweep for the NASCAR weekend at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
The 24-year-old Californian also won Saturday’s race in NASCAR’s second-tier Xfinity Series.
Sunday’s two-lap overtime finish in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race was set up when Ricky Stenhouse spun out with only four laps left in the 200-lap race, the latest in a spree of late-race accidents and caution periods.
On the final restart, Larson — who started on the pole — shot in front and never relinquished the lead in his No. 42 Chevrolet.
It was Larson’s first win of the season after three runner-up finishes in a row and his second career Cup victory.
