Share on Pinterest

Last Sunday, on March 23rd, the NASCAR 2014 California Speedway race was held in Fontana, California, at the Auto Club 400 Speedway track. Although there were a lot of problems, especially with the tires, the race is over and the winner is Kyle Busch, driver of the Toyota Camry.

This was his first victory in this season, after many poor results. While this is also a victory for Toyota, this time Chevrolet scored the most points. Second place went to Kyle Larson, driver of the Chevrolet SS (this is hist best result in his career), and the third place was won by the Busch’s brother, Kurt, also driver of the Chevrolet SS.

NASCAR 2014 California Speedway Scandal

As I mentioned above, the race has gone through a lot of problems. Most issues were with the tires, which go down after several laps. What’s worse, these problems did not occur only during the race, but on Saturday during qualifying. Six teams reported issues with the tires and their dissatisfaction.

Matt Kenseth had remarkable results and qualified in the first position, but his lead was short lived. At the NASCAR 2014 California Speedway race, Jimmie Johnson, the current champion and fan favorite, proved to be the champion for a reason. He led 104 of 200 laps. Brad Keselowski led 38 laps, while Jeff Gordon led 23 laps.

Everything was okay until the very end of the race. The tires went down on a large number of vehicles. Brad Keselowski was first to gave up because his tire went down and he finished 26th. Next, the champ, Jimmie Johnson, had the same problem while he was the first, six laps until the end of the race, so he also had to gave up and ended up 24th. Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart also had some issues with the tires, and some of them had to finish the race earlier.

While these drivers had their problems, Kyle Busch managed to reach the first position and to keep it. He is the winner of the NASCAR 2014 California Speedway race in Fontana.

Next NASCAR race will be held in Martinsville.
