FONTANA, Calif. -- With tires and tempers blowing up all over the track for 400 crazy miles, Kyle Busch stayed calm and relied on his remarkable knack for big finishes at Fontana. Busch won on this 2-mile oval for the second straight year Sunday, holding off Kyle Larson, Tony Stewart and his older brother Kurt on a frantic two-lap sprint to the finish. Kyle Busch capably blocked Larson and outlasted a crowded field to win a race featuring a track-record 35 lead changes and numerous tire problems. Busch stayed out of trouble and roared up late for his second straight stunner in Southern California, following up the Las Vegas natives final-lap surge to victory a year ago. "Holy cow, what do you expect when youve got a green-white-checkered finish and everybody has to come down pit road and put four tires on?" Busch asked after his third career win at Fontana. "That was Days of Thunder right there. Unbelievable day." With his 29th career Sprint Cup victory in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, Kyle Busch is NASCARs fifth winner in five races already this season. He led just five laps -- the fewest of his career in a win. Jimmie Johnson was comfortably in front when he blew a tire with seven laps left, precipitating the wild finish. Jeff Gordon moved in front until Clint Bowyer spun with two laps to go, setting up an overtime finish. Gordon was hoping to finish on old tires when Bowyer spun, but then elected to pit along with most of the leaders. Kurt Busch gambled with just two tires, allowing him to restart in second, but his younger brother came up from fifth in the final two laps to win. "I came off the fourth turn in disbelief that we won this thing, because we were mediocre all day," Kyle Busch said. "It was really weird for us, not a race that were typically used to. But now theres a load off your shoulders that you can go out the rest of the season and race the way you want to." He also got a thrill from outlasting Larson, the 21-year-old rookie who held him off Saturday to win the Nationwide Series race. "I guess you couldnt ask for more, but I was surprised to get up there late in the race," Larson said. "We were probably a 12th-place car for most of the day." He had to settle for the best finish of his Sprint Cup career in the No. 42 Chevrolet for Chip Ganassi Racing. Kyle Busch, who went to Larsons car Saturday to congratulate him on his Nationwide win, pointed out his window at Larson after Sundays finish, pumping his fist in approval. "What a shoe that boy is," Kyle Busch said of Larson. Kurt Busch finished third, with Matt Kenseth in fourth and 2012 champion Stewart in fifth. Several teams had serious tire problems on this weathered track, with multiple flats and cautions for various problems throughout the hot afternoon. The problems likely were the latest effect of NASCARs new aero rules, which are producing higher speeds that lead to extra stress on the tires -- particularly on the bumpy asphalt on Fontanas back straightaway, which already wears out tires aggressively. Those problems might frustrate pit crews, but they can also lead to phenomenal racing, as the sellout crowd on its feet for the finish could attest. "By no means is this a problem for Goodyear," Kurt Busch said, referring to NASCARs tire manufacturer. "Its just a thumbs-up for NASCAR for allowing teams to get aggressive in all areas." The intrigue and weirdness started early on at Fontana -- which somehow seemed appropriate for a race in which the Muppets Gonzo told the drivers to start their engines. Several drivers complained during an early pit stop that the red light was on, indicating pit road was closed. Gordon, Bowyer and Brad Keselowski did not pit because of the red light, and all were adamant NASCAR needed to correct their position in the running order. Robin Pemberton, NASCARs vice-president of competition, was told that the official in charge of displaying the flag got his uniform caught in a hole in a fence and couldnt move, preventing him from flipping off the red light. Its the second consecutive week an issue with the caution light affected the race: At Bristol last Sunday, someone in the flagstand leaned on the button that turned the caution lights on right before Carl Edwards took the white flag. Rain then began to fall heavily, and the race could not be resumed, so Edwards won under caution. Edwards finished 10th at Fontana and stayed one point ahead of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who finished 12th, for the overall points lead. Fontana didnt get a repeat of last years exciting duel between Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano, the unfriendly rivals who crashed into each other on the final lap while racing for the win. Hamlin was a last-minute scratch with a sinus infection, depriving him of the self-described chance for redemption after getting airlifted away from the track last year with a broken vertebra. Sam Hornish Jr. took his place in the No. 11 JGR Toyota and finished 17th. Logano, in a backup car after a crash earlier in the week, had to go to the garage after 114 laps, knocking him out of contention. He finished 39th. Tyler Flowers Braves Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. David Justice Jersey . Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., were third with 210.84 points. Teammates Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont., and Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto were fourth. Duhamel and Radford, who were seventh at the Sochi Olympics, also won bronze at last years world championships in London, Ont. -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has a broken bone below his right eye after being struck by a bad-hop grounder, sidelining the star slugger for at least a week with opening day on deck. David Justice Braves Jersey .Bacca took advantage of Cristian Alvarezs hesitation to head a lobbed pass over the goalkeeper and then used his feet to roll the ball into an empty net in the eighth minute. The Colombia strikers 10th goal pulled him level with Lionel Messi as the leagues third-leading scorers, far behind Cristiano Ronaldos runaway tally of 23 goals. Kurt Suzuki Jersey . Jones, from Winnipeg, built a 3-0 advantage after three ends by scoring two in the second and one in the third. Chinas skip Bingyu Wang cut that lead to 3-1 in the fourth before Canada added another three in the fifth for a 6-1 lead.VANCOUVER - After spending years to complete his primary mission in life, Adam Hadwin is embarking on a new one. Having secured his PGA Tour card for the first time in his career, the 26-year-old Abbotsford, B.C., golfer aims to keep it for as long as possible. "(Earning the card) has been a goal of mine for a long time, ever since I really picked up the game seriously and started playing junior and other events," he said. "My whole goal going to school (at University of Louisville) was not necessarily to further my education or to get a good job. It was to play competitive golf against the best players in college and go to a good golf program and then turn pro. "Since Ive been a professional for the last five years, Ive wanted to be at the top level, and I think everybody dreams of the PGA Tour and wants their PGA Tour card, because thats where the best players play week in and week out. To think that Ive got my opportunity starting next (season) to play against the best players in the world week in and week out and hopefully go up and play well and be a mainstay on Tour for years to come, its a really exciting feeling." Hadwins new quest began Thursday at the Hotel Fitness Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind., the first of four Tour playoff tournaments. He hopes a strong playoff showing will kick-start his effort to play in as many PGA events as possible under a complicated reshuffle system that determines entry eligibility, based on money winnings. He secured his PGA Tour card Sunday by finishing in a tie for second place at the Portland Open with a 13-under-par 271 total. The showing in Oregon left him fourth on the Tour money list, from which the top 25 advanced to the PGA Tour. As for PGA-related goals, Hadwin said he has yet to make them. He wants to finish well in the playoffs first and then set targets. Hadwins expectations got "out of control" in 2013, when he struggled on the Tour and never came close to earning his long-coveted PGA Tour card. In 2012, he missed out on a regular PGA Tour berth by one stroke as he placed outside of the Tours top 25. But instead of providing more motivation, the near-miss led to misery as Hadwin wondered what might have been and finished a "terrible" 74th on the money list. This season, he adopted a different approach, lowering his expectations. "Lets say I tried to be too perfect," he said. "Ive taken on a much more realistic goal. Coming into this year, I just tried to have a little bit more fun with it and enjoy myself on the golf course. The one thing I really wanted to do was to play more (by making the cut at each tournament.) I was trying to do a little bit too much on Thursday and Friday last year. This year, I just wanted to go out to get to the weekend — and play on the weekend." The attitude adjustment helped him earn his first Tour victory, in Santiago, Chile in March. The win is among his six top-10 finishes and a trio of top-three results this season. However, he hopes the chance to earn millions on the PGA Tour will not change him. "Im very happy with the way things have been going here," he said. "Im a pretty simple kid. Honestly. I was born on the Prairies (in Moose Jaw, Sask.,) and I didnt grow up with much. My parennts did the best they could.dddddddddddd They gave us everything that we ever wanted, but I dont really need much, and Im not looking for much. "Obviously, my lifes going to get a little bit crazier playing on the PGA Tour. The more you play, the more people want to talk to you, and the more people want to see you and stuff like that. But I just want to worry about going on the course and taking care of my business." The golf business has been part of Hadwins life since the day he was born. His father Gerry Hadwin, a longtime CPGA professional, has had considerable input in his sons career. "Ive always hit balls and Ive always been around the game," said Hadwin. "So its great to have (my father) as a support system and somebody to help my game and talk with." Meanwhile, two other key support crew members, B.C.-based coach Brett Saunders and caddie Joe Cruz, are moving to the PGA with him. "Ive worked with (Saunders) for 11 or 12 years now," said Hadwin. "Hes the only (coach) Ive worked with. … Hes gotten me to the next level of every step. Every time that I ever need to improve, we sit down and we figure out what we need to do, and we get it done. Hes the only one that Ive trusted with my game thus far." Hadwin is also expected to continue working with Vancouver-based golf strength and conditioning specialist Jason Glass, whom he credits for improving his balance, stability and mobility under a training program that has seen him add about 20 pounds of muscle. Off the course, Hadwin, who still lives in Abbotsford when he is not away competing or training, does not plan to change his way of life drastically, either. Although several Canadian pro golfers have adopted year-round U.S. bases, he plans to continue living in the Vancouver area in summer and Phoenix in winter. "Ive always loved (Vancouver)," he said. "I find it really hard to leave every time I come back. Its always one of my favourite cities just to be in. The weather over the summer is perfect. It doesnt get as hot as it does down south. Its usually perfect golfing weather, and theres lots of great golf courses." He will make his debut as a full-fledged PGA Tour member at the Silverado Resort in Napa, Calif., site of the upcoming season opener, the tournament, in early October. Hadwin finished tied for seventh in the 2011 event, but said success at this years tourney will be more difficult, because he is beginning the battle to retain his PGA Tour card. Scott Simmons, Golf Canadas CEO, is also excited about Hadwins new status. Simmons believes that Hadwin and 27-year-old Merritt, B.C., native Roger Sloan, who also earned full-fledged PGA Tour membership for the first time in his career Sunday in Portland by placing 24th on the Tour money list, can have a "huge" impact on young Canadian golfers. Golf Canada strives to to ensure that young players do not fall through the development "cracks." But, Simmons added, when homegrown "heroes" like Hadwin and Sloan excel on golfs top stage, they can spark the same kind of participation boom that young Canadian stars like Milos Raonic, Vasek Pospisil and Eugenie Bouchard have in tennis. "It means a lot for Canadian golf over and above our program," said Simmons.
