The local boy held Kyle Busch effort off for win #200 for another day. Cole Custer from nearby Ladera Ranch, Calif. grabbed the lead with 18 laps remaining in the NASCAR Xfinity Production Alliance Group 300 at Auto Club Speedway. Kyle Busch would finish 1.927 seconds behind Custer.

“It means a ton,” said the 21-year-old Custer. “As great a driver as Kyle Busch is, he’s going to be one of the legends of our sport. To keep him one race more from getting 200 means a lot. I’m sure he’s a little bit frustrated, but we have a great time racing him.”
