Cup - Fontana - Race results

Tony Stewart was out in front at the Auto Club Speedway in California when the weather closed in and brought this week's Cup race to a premature end.
Tony Stewart had an eye on the weather on lap 85 when he decided to take into the lead of the Auto Club 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Race from longtime leader Kyle Busch. Sure enough the forecast rain arrived on lap 123 to bring out the first and only caution of the day, which soon became a red.

With no prospect of the rain abating for the rest of the day, and with more than half the 200 lap race distance complete, NASCAR called the race and declared Stewart the winner. It's his second victory in 21 races at Auto Club Speedway, the most recent in October 10, 2010. It's Stewart's 46th victory in 469 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in total.
