Matt Kenseth Wins at California Speedway [David Stefanini]

Matt Kenseth won the Auto Club 500 for the second consecutive year Sunday at California Speedway.

Pole-winner Jeff Gordon finished second and teammate Jimmie Johnson was third.

Kenseth also won the Stater Bros. 300 Busch race on Saturday.


Kenseth is obviously the dominating driver at this track. Last year he won this race, Saturday he won the Busch race, and now he completed the tri-fecta by winning on Sunday. Kenseth, who started the race 40th in the points, is going to get a huge lift in the point standings. With the new rules with the top 12 drivers going into a 10 race shoot-out, it does not matter who is leading the points now, but Kenseth is going to feel better when he looks at the standings tomorrow mourning and sees himself amoung the leaders.
