Can Harvick Make It 4 In-A-Row? Why Sunday’s Race May Come Down to SHR vs. JGR and Penske

Kevin Harvick is on the verge of NASCAR history and could do so this weekend in Fontana. If Harvick wins Sunday’s Auto Club 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) it would be his fourth consecutive win. Only a small handful of drivers have ever won four straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races. Also, he would have reached victory lane in four of the first five races to start the season too. Again, only a few drivers have ever done that too. Harvick, led 181 of the 325 laps in…

Obviously, the talk of the NASCAR garage and favorite for Sunday’s Auto Club 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) has to be Kevin Harvick. He’s going for four straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victories this weekend in Fontana, a feat he can honestly pull off too. But, if anyone is going to derail Harvick’s dominance, look no further than the Joe Gibbs Racing camp. JGR heads to Fontana with some momentum. In fact, the 2-mile California track suits their drivers very well. Kyle Busch has finished second in each…

Can Larson Keep Winning Streak Going On 2 Mile Tracks This Weekend In Fontana

Just call him two-mile Kyle if you want. There’s been nobody better on both two-mile D-Shaped NASCAR tracks over the last two years than Kyle Larson. In fact, if you go back to August of 2016, no one has won a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series nor NASCAR XFINITY Series race that Larson had entered at both the Auto Club Speedway or Michigan International Speedway, other than Larson himself. In 2016, Larson earned his first career Cup victory at Michigan. There was no XFINITY Series race at Michigan in August.…
