Kyle Busch made history on St. Patrick’s Day at the Auto Club Speedway earning his 200th win in NASCAR's top three national series (Monster Energy Cup Series, Xfinity Series, Gander Outdoors Truck Series).  He joined NASCAR Hall-of Famer, Richard Petty, as the only two drivers with 200 wins.  However, all of Petty’s victories were in the Cup Series.
"Feels just like No. 1 — feels just like yesterday," Busch said after the race.  "To win 200, it means a lot to me. It means a lot to Joe Gibbs Racing."
Busch dominated the first two stages before receiving a speeding penalty.  This put him at the end of the lead lap cars heading into the third segment, but he was able to take the lead with more than 25 laps left to go.
Busch has won three of his Cup victories in the past seven years at Fontana.  His victories are a combination of 53 Cup Series wins, 53 Truck Series wins, and 94 Xfinity wins to reach the 200 milestone.  This was his best Fontana finish in his 11-year career.
"That was such an awesome race car," said Busch of his green No. 18 Toyota Camry. "I'm glad we put on a heck of a show for all these fans out here in California. You know, it takes green to get in victory lane today” -- St. Patrick's Day.
Joey Logano finished second – just 2.534 seconds behind Busch, and Brad Keselowski third.  Busch now has a 15-point overall lead over Logano. Team Penske had three drivers in the top five at Fontana.
