Austin Dillon Wins In Hollywood Fashion!

Austin Dillon won the 2016 TreatMyClot.com 300 at Auto Club Speedway today in a race dominated by Kyle Busch. In a frantic last lap pass coming to the flag Austin Dillon stole win #4 of the season from Kyle Busch after Busch blew a tire. Busch still managed to pull a 2nd place in the race but ended the streak Kyle Busch had in the Xfinity Series. In the final few laps contenders began to fall faster than bags of wet cement. Erik Jones was the first driver to run out of fuel surrendering 2nd place to Daniel Suarez. Kyle Busch began to John Wes Townley it around the track at half throttle or he was running on fumes. As Suarez took the lead He too ran out of fuel leaving the win in the hands of Kyle Busch. It's unaware on if Kyle Busch hit debris but he then blew a left front tire with Austin Dillon coming at him full speed. Dillon passed Busch coming to the checker but Busch let out one last desperate move to maybe slow Austin's run but it wasn't enough. Darrell Wallace Jr., Daniel Suarez, and Elliott Sadler rounded out the Top 5 in this wild Hollywood Ending.
