Kyle Larson managed to keep pole sitter Joey Logano behind in the final restart of the race, winning Service King 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Auto Club Speedway last Saturday.

Larson, who only led  21 laps out of 150 fought back to the lead recovering from a speeding penalty claiming his first victory of the season, the sixth of his career, after a remarkable battle side by side with Joey Logano in the final four laps.

Both drivers swapeed the lead several times, with Logano surrending the lead just two laps before the checkered flag contiunuing the winless streak for Roger Penske in the Xfinity Series at Fontana.

Joey Logano although his unbelievable performance in which led six times for a race-high 70 laps, also fell back due to a speeding penalty occurred early in the race but struggled like a lion returning to the lead in the meantime conquered by Kyle Busch.

The Las Vegas native, led a total of 55 laps and finished third after touching the wall pursuing Logano for the lead at lap 122, but did not have enough to continue the momentum he had in the previous laps. Behind him, Erik Jones  finished fourth, his second best performance at this track, while William Byron completed the top five being the first full time Xfinity Series driver eligible for the championship.
