Any interesting story isn’t complete without a good surprise or two.

Auto Club Speedway hasn’t exactly gained the reputation of a fan-favorite track during its tenure on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit. And it’s certainly produced some clunkers, with margins of victory sometimes in double-digit seconds. But the finishes have not been all bad.

NASCAR’s Gander Outdoor Truck Series often provides the best racing of any given weekend’s slate. But if you go by the ratings and attendance at the truck events, the series seems to be teetering on the precipice of obscurity few envisioned when the series made its bombastic debut back in 1995. After all, the three …
