BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Saturday afternoon Kyle Busch finished first in the 4th Annual Winter Showdown at Kern Raceway.
"This one ranks right up there, it's pretty high on the list..." said Busch after the race on Saturday. "Here out at Kern County, this is a big race. I mean it's one of the crown jewels I think of our sport."
"There's probably four or five big late-model races and it's nice to be able to check this one off the list," the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion said.
Buddy Shepard, a senior at Centennial High School, took second place in the race.
