Though Kyle Busch dominated the greater part of the AdvoCare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway it was Kevin Harvick who got the better of a late race restart, and then rode out a wild end to the race.
Given that he was the leader on the last lap, it looked very unlikely that Brad Keselowski would be able to repeat his famous Talladega victory from 2009, achieved by wrecking Carl Edwards on the run to the flag. But on this occasion, conventional wisdom didnâ€™t prevail and Kyle Busch was unable to make the decisive pass which would have given him his second win in succession.
After Kurt Buschâ€™s dramatic victory for Kyle Busch Motorsports on Friday in the Nationwide Series, his younger brother, the eponymous team-owner Kyle Busch, wrapped up a perfect weekend at Richmond by defeating Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the premier Sprint Cup. It was Kyleâ€™s fourth consecutive victory in the spring event at Richmond, and lifted him back into Chase contention after a trying season so far with only two top-10 finishes.
Tony Stewart battled past Kyle Busch to take his second win in three races at a rain-hit Auto Club Speedway. For Stewart, who has won 7 of the last 15 races, including at Las Vegas two weeks previously, his latest visit to victory lane owed a great deal to new-crew chief Steve Addington, who outfoxed Stewartâ€™s former crew chief Darian Grubb, now with Denny Hamlinâ€™s no.11 Joe Gibbs Racing team.
Brad Keselowski took his first win of the season with a dominant performance at the Bristol Motor Speedway, his first since winning the night race at the Tennessee speed-bowl last summer. â€˜Special Kâ€™ led more laps than anyone else on his way to victory lane, but was made to work hard for it with the Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth and a gaggle of Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas on his tail throughout the closing stages.
After beating fire and rain, Matt Kenseth was able to hold off his Roush-Fenway Ford team-mate Greg Biffle and a charging Dale Earnhardt Jr. to win the delayed Daytona 500 on Monday night.
