Larson gets 1st Nationwide win, holds off Harvick
Question of the Day
The 21-year-old Larson became the first California native to win a Nationwide race at the 2-mile oval, surviving a three-man derby in the final laps that had the fans on their feet.
“Those last 11, 12 laps were the longest laps of my life,” Larson said. “I’ve been so close to winning so many times, but the fashion we did it in was extra special.”
One of NASCAR’s most promising young drivers, Larson is from Elk Grove, Calif., near Sacramento. After being named Nationwide’s top rookie last season, he’s driving the No. 42 car for Chip Ganassi Racing in the Sprint Cup series.
“We had a lot of fun there at the end, obviously,” Harvick said. “You’d rather win the race, but any time you can put on a show like that for the fans, you’re excited about that.”
Busch, the defending champion at Fontana after last year’s weekend sweep, started 39th after missing qualifying with car problems. He roared through the field to take the lead before coming up just short in the big finish.
Joey Logano was fourth after leading 96 laps early on, and Elliott Sadler finished fifth.
Busch nudged back in front by a bumper with five laps to go, but Larson cut in front moments later to push Busch back. Harvick repeatedly drove down hard into the turns in an effort to get in front, but Larson barely held him off.
