NASCAR Race Weekend Central

Entry List: Auto Club 400

The Sprint Cup Series will again race with a less-than-full field on Sunday in the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway in California.

Thirty-nine cars are entered for the race, the final race in the West Coast Swing and final race before the Cup drivers take a week off for Easter. There are nine previous winners in the field: Brad Keselowski, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, Greg Biffle and Kurt Busch.

Brian Vickers will return to the No. 14 after taking Phoenix off. He will be sponsored by Janssen’s  Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. Vickers will be racing in place of Tony Stewart – his best finish at ACS is third in 2005.

Three Open teams are entered: Ryan Blaney in the No. 21, Josh Wise in the No. 30 and Cole Whitt in the No. 98. All three will make the race due to the short field.

    Seating capacity is the only thing falling faster than ratings and driver entries. NA$CAR will look like American open wheel racing soon. Isn’t technology great.

    The only thing falling faster than TV ratings and entries are grandstand seats! NA$CAR will soon resemble Indy Car for popularity. Spec cars, boring races, Isn’t technology great?
