Kyle Busch drove the No. 18 Toyota Camry to his 200th NASCAR national series win on Sunday afternoon, visiting victory lane at California’s Auto Club Speedway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS).
“To get 200 (wins) here today at Auto Club Speedway is pretty cool,” said Busch. “I mean, to bookend number one and 200 here at the same place, it’s pretty crazy. Just being able to win, it's what it's about.”
“We live and die on our reaction times,” said Crampton. “Coming into the race today, I knew I needed to be on it. The field we have in Top Fuel now is the cream of the crop. You're winning and losing everything on the starting line and I'm focusing on that. I'm pretty proud of what we accomplished today."
While Crampton was victorious, it was his Toyota teammate, Doug Kalitta, who retook the series points lead after advancing to the Top Fuel semifinals. He now holds a 42-point advantage over second.
In IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition, the AIM VASSER SULLIVAN No. 12 Lexus RC F GT3 was the top Lexus entry, finishing ninth in the Twelve Hours of Sebring on Saturday with co-drivers Townsend Bell, Frankie Montecalvo and Aaron Telitz competing in the GTD class.
