Truex wins 1st stage at Fontana; Harvick wrecks

Kraus Goes Back-To-Back With K&N West Win At Kern Truex wins 1st stage at Fontana; Harvick wrecks

All that stands in his way from completing the sweep is to capture the checkered flag at the end of the Auto Club 400.

Although Johnson has six career victories at Auto Club Speedway, the Cup Series track closest to his hometown, the Californian might not have the vehicle to prevent Harvick from becoming the first driver to sweep all three races in NASCAR's West Coast swing. Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch, both of whom start in Row 1, will try to get out in front and keep the 4 in the rear view mirror.

Truex won back-to-back poles for the first time in his career Friday, following up his pole in Phoenix with another speedy performance.

Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, Brad Keselowski and last year's victor Kyle Larson have each taken one checkered flag at Fontana.

"I crashed going into the green flag past year", Harvick said, referring to damage on the nose of his auto in the opening moments of the race. Jimmie Johnson was the last to accomplish the feat back in 2007, and the only driver to do it in the 21st century.

Greipel to miss Classics with broken collarbone - Milan-San Remo injury report
Vincenzo Nibali carried off a daring solo attack to win the Milan-San Remo classic on Saturday and add to his long list of major cycling achievements.

Stage 1 victor: Martin Truex Jr. Truex, the defending series champion had an 11.6 second margin of victory over runner-up Kyle Larson.

The NASCAR Cup Series drivers hope California dreamin' turns into Fontana winnin' today.

Kyle Larson, who had won the past four races on 2-mile tracks, finished second.

The reigning series champion scored his first Cup triumph of the season and the 16th of his career. Harvick and Larson were racing for the third position when Larson unbeknownst to Harvick pulled to his inside, and when Harvick tried to go low himself he banged into Larson's vehicle turning him into the outside backstretch wall.

Harvick's flapping bumper was the most obvious problem, but he made a nice save down the track to avoid an interior wall.
