Custer wins Xfin­ity race, deny­ing Busch

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

Cole Custer held off Kyle Busch to win the NASCAR Xfin­ity Se­ries race at Auto Club Speed­way on Satur­day, pre­vent­ing Busch from ty­ing Richard Petty’s record with his 200th ca­reer vic­tory across NASCAR’s three ma­jor se­ries.

The 21-year-old Custer cap­i­tal­ized when a dis­as­trous pit stop dropped Busch to 14th place with 33 laps to go in a race Busch had dom­i­nated up to that point.

Busch missed his first chance to match Petty’s hal­lowed mark, but he’ll get an­other when he com­petes in the Cup Se­ries race at Fon­tana on Sun­day.
