This weeks race is around the Auto Club Speedway. Located in Southern California’s premier motorsports facility. Built on the site of a former Kaiser Steel mill near in Fontana in 1996-97 at a cost of $100m, the track has 84,000 permanent seats and is home to a NASCAR weekend each spring. As well, Auto Club Speedway has played host to virtually every top level professional motorsports series in North America and is home of the world’s closed course speed record (established when Gil de Ferran qualified for the pole at the 2000 California 500 IndyCar race with a one lap average speed of 241.428 mph).
