The Pit Stop

Auto Club Speedway weekend thoughts....

I do not think I have ever seen such a weekend where one Nationwide Series car and one Sprint Cup just fully dominated.   Made it a bit boring.

No one could keep up with Kyle Busch on Saturday, and no one could even hang with Jimmie Johnson on Sunday.

It was interesting to see so many cars on the apron trying to go as fast as possible.  I also thought the cars were going to tighten up as it got darker, but they did not.

It was nice to see both Red Bull cars in the five for a while in the race.  A.J. Allmendinger has been some good rides as of late.

It is great to see that with one more race left we have Clint Bowyer, David Ragan, and Kasey Kahne all batteling for the final chase spot.
