FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Busch earned his first victory at Fontana on Sunday after rivals Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano wrecked on the final lap in a thrilling NASCAR finish.

Hamlin and Logano made contact while they raced side-by-side in the final lap of their first race since the drivers confronted each other last week at Bristol. Logano hit the outside wall and Hamlin hit the inside wall, with Hamlin leaving the course in an ambulance.

Tony Stewart then confronted Logano after the race and shoved the younger driver before teammates pulled them apart. Logano blocked Stewart out of a late restart.

Busch led the most laps and took advantage of his remarkable stroke of luck to pick up Joe Gibbs Racing’s first victory at Fontana, the only track where the team had never won.
