5 Favorites For Sunday’s Auto Club 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

FONTANA, Calif – Can Kevin Harvick win his unprecedented fourth straight Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday at the Auto Club Speedway? He’s dominated the 2018 season thus far and is going for a clean sweep of the NASCAR west coast swing. If he’s going to do so though, he’s going to have to win from the 10th starting position.

Common Theme Among NASCAR Teams Caught Cheating In Qualifying

FONTANA, Calif – I already wrote about the embarrassment that was formerly known as qualifying for Sunday’s Auto Club 400 (3:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). It was a bad look for the sport. But, when I took a deeper look at the teams that didn’t make it even to pit road from the technical inspection area in the Auto Club Speedway, a few themes were apparent. First off, from what I heard, most if not all the teams failed in one common area – the back of the car. That was…

NASCAR Gets Blamed, But The Teams Caused Chaos In Fontana Qualifying

FONTANA, Calif – NASCAR should be ashamed at how qualifying at the Auto Club Speedway went on Friday. Their top teams in the overall sport gave them a black eye. While I don’t necessarily mean the top teams in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, there were some, but not all, I mean that any team on the Cup level is considered a top team when you factor in every division of NASCAR. Those teams, well they’re the reason this sport is seeing drops in attendance, TV ratings and all around…

Truex and Busch Earn Front Row Starting Spots After a Wild Qualifying Session in Fontana

FONTANA, Calif – NASCAR is going to have to eventually do something about their cars missing out of qualifying. While it’s not their fault for what’s happening, it’s something that’s going to have to be rectified. With technical inspection going to new depths over the last few years, that mixed with teams pushing the limits on setups, have seen several races where cars didn’t even make a qualifying attempt. Counter that with only 37 cars showing up on most race weekends now, and it’s a crime to charge fans the price…

Harvick/SHR Lead Cup Practice on Friday, Suarez Goes To a Backup Car After Crashing

FONTANA, Calif – Kevin Harvick is picking up each week from where he left off at the previous track the previous race weekend. It’s becoming a common trend. Harvick, wins the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race one week, then he comes out of the gates the following weekend strong. By the end of the weekend, he’s back in victory lane. Rinse. Wash. Repeat. Well, here we are again. Last weekend at Phoenix, Harvick won his third consecutive Cup race in the TicketGuardian 500. On Friday, the first time the cars…

5 Favorites For Saturday’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio)

With Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch both not being on the NASCAR XFINITY Series entry-list for this weekend’s NXS 300 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) it opens up the door for someone else to contend this weekend in Fontana. Since 2008, Busch and Larson have combined to win eight of the 12 races on the D-Shaped, 2-mile California oval. Throw in Kevin Harvick’s win in 2015, and that’s three stars off the list. Last weeks winner Brad Keselowski isn’t entered either. That means we could be treated to a first…
