Twitter reacts to Austin Dillon’s amazing XFINITY win at Auto Club Speedway

In one of the most remarkable endings of any in NASCAR race history, Austin Dillon passed Kyle Busch on the last lap to win the TreatMyClot.com 300 XFINITY Series race, denying Busch a spot in history.

Busch led 133 of 150 laps but blew a tire in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and got passed by teammate Daniel Suarez. Amazingly, Suarez ran out of fuel and Busch regained the lead on the last lap, only to have Dillon come around on the high side in Turn 4 and make the race-winning pass at the end of the last lap.

In the process, Dillon denied Busch’s chance to become the first driver in history to win four consecutive XFINITY races.

"He tried to screw us there at the end," Dillon said of Busch’s attempt to crowd him in Turn 4. "Didn’t work out for him, didn’t it?"

Here’s what some others in the NASCAR community had to say about the wild finish.
