Auto Club Speedway is known for having one of the most abrasive track surfaces of any NASCAR circuit. It causes massive amount of tire wear, but this year's Auto Club 400 was just too much. Tire after tire completely burst, leaving the winner to be really the guy with four pieces of rubber left.
And it just happened to be Kyle Busch.
The leader of the race changed countless times as one person would grab the lead, then be forced back to the pits or watch the rubber bags of air beneath them explode.
Jimmie Johnson held the lead with only five laps to go before his race was completely destroyed. Parker Kligerman (who can't catch a break), Kevin Harvick, Justin Allgaier, Greg Biffle, Danica Patrick, Tony Stewart, and Dale Earnhardt, Jr., lost tires, too.
