Auto Club 500 Preview – 2008

Posted by Matt on February 24, 2008

California golden boys Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon start 1/2 in today’s Auto Club 500 by virtue of point totals from last season after qualifying was rained out. I don’t know that there is any other way but you would much rather qualify than line the cars up based on points from last season and I am not a big fan of the process; the rich get richer.

Along with Jimmie and Jeff, Matt Kenseth is a strong runner at Fontana and he starts 4th and will be in contention at the end as long as he can stay out of trouble, that I can almost guarantee.

The starting grid can be found here: Auto Club 500 Starting Grid

Predictions

Winner: Jeff Gordon – #24 DuPont Chevrolet – Hendrick Motorsports

Most Laps Lead: Matt Kenseth – #17 DeWalt Ford – Roush Racing

Dario Franchitti Watch: Dario starts 26th today and with the restrictor plates off, we’ll see if Franchitti fairs better than he did at the Daytona 500, a restrictor plate race.
