FONTANA BY THE NUMBERS: Kenseth is ranked second of active drivers in the Sprint Cup Series for number of wins (three) and top-ten finishes (13) at Auto Club Speedway. Kenseth also ranks second of all active drivers for top-five finishes with a total of eight. Kenseth has completed 4,782 of 4,784 laps at Auto Club Speedway in 20 Cup Series starts and has led for a total of 497 laps at the two-mile track. TOYOTA MOTORSPORTS DAY: On Thursday, March 21st, Kenseth along with fellow Toyota Racing drivers in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will visit Toyota’s corporate offices in Torrance, CA for Toyota Motorsports Day. This will mark Kenseth’s first visit to the facility where drivers will meet with employees prior to the weekend’s race events at Auto Club Speedway. THIS WEEK ON THE NO. 20 DOLLAR GENERAL TOYOTA: Dollar General vendor partners Sparkle, Clorox, Betty Crocker, Downy and Hefty will be featured on Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 20 Toyota Camry this weekend at Auto Club Speedway. RACE INFO: The Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway (2.0-mile) begins at 3:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 24. The race will be broadcast live on FOX, Sirius XM Channel 90 and MRN Radio. From the Cockpit: Matt Kenseth: “I think that Fontana has really changed a lot over the last three or four years. The grooves have moved around and everyone always talks about the seams in the pavement. Those seams can get a little tricky since you can’t really run across them and have to pick a lane in between them. I think one of the biggest challenges at Fontana is to try different lines constantly in order to find the most grip throughout the race. I’m looking forward to going to Toyota headquarters on Thursday to meet the employees and to see the engine facility so I’m really excited to see all that later this week.” From the Pit Box: Jason Ratcliff: “The track at Fontana is a down-force track where aerodynamics really come into play in getting your car to run well there. It’s a really wide track so there’s plenty of room to try out various lines and to pass, but it’s really a place where you need a great-handling race car as well as one that can give drivers the horsepower they need. Matt’s had a lot of success at Auto Club Speedway in the past, and I really feel like we’ve had some strong cars this season already, so I’m looking ahead to this weekend to see what our Dollar General Toyota can do at our first two-mile track of the season.”
