FONTANA, Calif. - Kyle Busch earned his first victory of the season 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 getting attention in an ambulance and eventually getting airlifted to a hospital due to traffic around the track.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - The situation was perfect for Carl Edwards to issue some payback on Kyle Busch. Instead, Edwards passed on a chance to knock Busch out of the lead over the closing laps at Bristol Motor Speedway. As Busch pulled away for yesterday's win - his fifth-straight dating back to last August at the Tennessee track - Edwards regretted not racing harder to potentially steal the victory. The two have a history at Bristol, and Edwards is still smarting from contact last month at Phoenix that he believed wrecked a car capable of winning the race.

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Kyle Busch won his fourth Sprint Cup race of the year, outlasting Jimmie Johnson in a green-white-checkered finish at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. Busch, the series points leader coming into the race, passed Johnson with about a dozen laps remaining and was opening up a comfortable margin when brother Kurt Busch scraped a wall, forcing a caution from laps 198 to 201. The yellow flag erased much of Kyle Busch's lead, but he was able to fight off a quick move from Johnson after the restart and pull away.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - The pack is back. And so is the Big One. Kyle Busch edged Tony Stewart in a thrilling finish to the first race of 2012, using a sling-shot pass Saturday night on the last lap of the exhibition Budweiser Shootout to beat the defending NASCAR champion to the checkered flag. It gave Busch a victory in a wild race that included two incredible saves by the eventual winner to stay in contention in the 75-lap sprint around Daytona International Speedway.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick were fined $25,000 apiece and put on probation yesterday by NASCAR for their actions on pit road at Darlington Raceway. The probation for all NASCAR-sanctioned events runs through June 15, a span that includes four Sprint Cup Series championship races and the non-points $1 million All-Star event. Busch and Harvick's on-and-off feuding resumed Saturday night after contact Busch had with Harvick led to Harvick's wreck with Clint Bowyer.

Rookie Kyle Busch outdrove NASCAR's top contenders to win yesterday. All but one, that is. "I just want to say I'm behind my brother 100 percent," Kyle said of defending Nextel Cup champion Kurt Busch, who was suspended earlier in the day by Roush Racing for the final two races after police cited him for reckless driving Friday night. Standing on top of his car and waving to the crowd at Phoenix International Raceway, Busch called his older brother, "a true champion. " He later said, "Usually, things in the media are false and that's just what it comes down to sometimes.

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. - Qualifying last, Kyle Busch did what he had never done before: He won a pole on a road course, shattering the track record at Watkins Glen International on Saturday. "This feels very good," Busch said after posting a lap of 126.421 m.p.h. around the 11-turn, 2.45-mile circuit. Busch, who qualified last after posting the best time in practice Friday, was nearly 2 m.p.h. faster than the mark Jeff Gordon set eight years ago. That knocked A.J. Allmendinger off the pole and deprived Richard Petty Motorsports of a front-row sweep for Sunday's Sprint Cup race.

THE "DOVER Dominator" is back. Jimmie Johnson, winner of a record 10 Dover Cup races, will attempt to add to his collection Sunday at Dover International Speedway. Johnson has won three of the last five Dover races. In his spring 2015 win at the Delaware 1-mile oval, Johnson led only the last 23 laps. "There is just something about Dover that fits my driving style," the six-time Cup champion said. "There is some weird pressure that comes with that - we aren't too happy when we aren't running up to our expectations.

HAMPTON, Ga. - Check another one off the list for Kyle Busch. Less than 24 hours after losing the Sprint Cup pole, Busch claimed his first Xfinity Series victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday. Busch and Kyle Larson pulled away from the field after the final yellow flag. Larson closed the gap to about a half-second in the closing laps, but the rally ended when he got caught up briefly behind the lapped car of Ryan Preece. Busch crossed the line 0.466 seconds ahead of Larson, then did his customary burnout and bow in front of the main grandstand, holding the checkered flag.

WHAT DO Greg Biffle, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick have in common? With the retirement of Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart's latest injury, the forty-ish five are the senior statesmen as the NASCAR Sprint Cup series glides into a year of transition. Gordon, 44, is now a Fox Sports racing analyst. Stewart, also 44, is recuperating from a fractured vertebra suffered in an all-terrain vehicle accident Jan. 31 in California. "Seniors" Biffle (46)

JOEY LOGANO vs. Matt Kenseth - the first major conflict in this year's Chase. With only five more Chase races remaining, there's bound to be more heavyweight heat generated among drivers and crews. The major question I have about Sunday's Kansas race is: Did Logano have to spin out Kenseth to pick up his fifth win of the season, or could Logano have passed Kenseth cleanly? Entering the Kansas race, Kenseth had collected the most wins this season (five). Logano had won four. Logano knew that if he could prevent Kenseth from winning the race, he would force Kenseth into a must-win situation Sunday in the CampingWorld.com 500 at Talladega.

ANOTHER SEPTEMBER, another Chase. The 10-race format is designed to maintain interest in NASCAR while the NFL and college football seasons and baseball playoffs are heating up. For openers, the first Chase race dives into the Chicago market Sunday, where it will compete for attention with the revived Cubs and the always popular Bears. Then the Chase caravan moves on to New Hampshire and Dover, Del. The final Chase race again will be in Homestead, Fla., on Nov. 22. As usual, there are strong contenders from the heavyweight-class teams: Joe Gibbs Racing has four teams in the Chase, Hendrick Motorsports qualified three, and Penske Racing has two. There are also first-time Chasers Jamie McMurray and Paul Menard.

WE SUSPECT several Sprint Cup series drivers are not sleeping well this week, since Saturday night's race at Richmond will determine the 16-driver field for the Chase, which begins Sept. 20 at Chicagoland Speedway. Drivers facing days and nights of stress include Aric Almirola, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle, Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon. They are 16th through 20th and all are winless this season. If any of them win at Richmond, they'll be in the Chase. If a driver who already has a victory this year wins again Saturday, Clint Bowyer - in 15th place and also winless - needs only to finish 28th or better to hold a Chase spot.

WHEN A RACER has achieved the prominence Jeff Gordon has in NASCAR, he wants his career to end on a high note. With 92 career Sprint Cup Series victories (third all-time), Gordon fervently wants to be part of this year's Chase in his final racing season. Gordon is relatively safe at 11th in points, but needs a victory in the next six races before the Chase begins to guarantee his inclusion in the 10-race elimination tournament. The good news for Gordon is, Pocono and the five other pre-Chase race tracks have been productive places for him. He has won the most Cup races at Pocono (six)

KYLE BUSCH has won three consecutive Sprint Cup races. In four of the last five races, Busch has parked his No. 18 Toyota in victory lane. This is an astounding streak under normal conditions. It's even more amazing, given that Busch missed the season's first 11 events, while recuperating from injuries suffered in a crash at Daytona in February. Busch is tied with Jimmie Johnson for most wins this season (four each). Johnson has run all 20 Cup races, while Busch has been in only nine.

SOMETIMES a week off from Sprint Cup racing gives us too much time to think. At least thinking keeps me from involvement in Mrs. F's "honey-do" list. "Not now, dear, I'm focusing on, um, NASCAR. " Then I duck as a restrictor plate soars across the room. Anyway, with 11 races remaining before the 16-driver Chase field is formed, let's check who's in the Chase and who's hoping to get in. Ten drivers have at least one victory this season and are in the Chase (see list of winners in This Week's Race box)
