California is not one of my favorite tracks, but should be a decent enough race.

Agreed, i normally think of California as a very boring race.

•At Auto Club Speedway::
Groundbreaking for California Speedway, as Auto Club Speedway was originally known, took place in November 1995.
The first race at Auto Club Speedway was a NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West race won by Ken Schrader on June 21, 1997.
The first NASCAR Sprint Cup race was held on June 22, 1997 and won by Jeff Gordon.
September 2004 was the first night race at Auto Club Speedway and that also was the first year both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR Nationwide Series ran two races in a season there.
The track name was changed to Auto Club Speedway in February 2008.
There have been 21 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Auto Club Speedway since the track opened in 1997.
Four drivers have competed in all 21 races: Jeff Burton, Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte and Joe Nemechek.
Joe Nemechek won the pole for the inaugural race in 1997.
There have been 14 different pole winners, led by Kurt Busch (three). Brian Vickers, Jamie McMurray and Jeff Gordon each have two poles.
Thirteen different drivers have posted victories. Jimmie Johnson leads all drivers with five wins. Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth each have won three races.
Hendrick Motorsports has won nine races, more than any other team.
Ten of the 21 races were won from starting positions outside the top 10; only one has been won from the pole (Jimmie Johnson in 2008). The most prolific starting position is third, with three victories.
Matt Kenseth won the 2006 spring race from the 31st starting position, the deepest in the field that a race winner has started.
Two active drivers have averaged a top-10 finish: Jimmie Johnson (5.3) and Carl Edwards (9.2).
Kyle Busch won his first NASCAR Sprint Cup pole (2/05) and first race (9/05) at Auto Club Speedway.
Jimmie Johnson won his first NASCAR Sprint Cup race at ASC on April 28, 2002.(NASCAR)(3-22-2011)

So those 18 wins were just a fluke?

warrior63
03-27-2011, 02:28 PM
Not a fluke, but tell me what he has done since he was "the man" at DEI. Right now he's in the best organization in NASCAR, and he's done squat. I understand that he's an Earnhardt (the crowned prince of NASCAR basically), but he gets way to much love and credit for stuff, and hasn't really done anything for a while. Because of said name.
In the last 5 yrs his line looks like this......
Races: 148
Poles: 4
Wins: 1
Top 5: 22
Top 10: 43
DNF: 17
Avg start: 16
Avg finish: 18

I say that any driver that has that stat line over a 5 year period, and gets as much hype and build around them because of something other then what they've done, is overrated.....every time.

Bingo, Not a fluke, but the majority of those wins came more than 6 years ago. Hes got 1 win in his past 174 Starts. There was a point in time where he was a good driver. Now he is mediocre at best and gets way more hype and publicity than he should. Are we going to use all of the drivers pasts to base how good they are now? If so Bill Elliott, and Bobby Labonte are def. among NASCAR's elite right now.

It is early, but Jr. relies way too much on staying out of trouble to get an OK finish. If his car was any good he would have moved up more than the lower teens.

It's the same thing every race for Jr.

It is early, but Jr. relies way too much on staying out of trouble to get an OK finish. If his car was any good he would have moved up more than the lower teens.

It is still better than it use to be.

Kyle Busch is going to be tough to beat.

Kyle Busch is going to be tough to beat.
Truex was the only legit challenger, and he's fallen back.

Maybe a guy like Vickers or Bowyer can make a run. Stewart's car is pretty good.

Dang it, he was 14th last I saw but I'm flipping back and forth between basketball.

He's in 14th. Crom must have looked when they were doing pit stops.

I hate these NAPA commercials.

Pretty awesome move by Busch there to get debris off front grill.

They got Labonte's car out of there earlier than I thought. 2 tires for most maybe.

Top 7 stay out. Everyone else seems to come in.

This might be nuts if those two tire cars can get up there.

Well Jr finished 12th not bad considering he runs poorly at Auto club but he runs well at Martinsville usually.
