Nascar Auto Club 400 Gambling Picks/Preview

2011 Auto Club 400 – Fontana Predictions – Betting Preview + Picks + Odds

Preview: NASCAR has been coming to Fontana since 1997 – once a year at first, then twice a year starting in 2004, for a total of 21 races now in the books. This year, however, NASCAR turned the track back to one seasonal outing, so this will be the circuit’s only visit to Fontana in 2011.

Race: The Auto Club 400
Date: Sunday, March 27, 2011
Time: 3:16 PM EST (scheduled Green Flag)
TV: 3:00 PM EST on FOX
Track: Auto Club Speedway (Fontana)

Auto Club Speedway is a 2.0-mile D-shaped oval with 14 degrees of banking in the corners, requiring a combination of horsepower, downforce and handling to turn a fast lap and a well-built engine to handle the RPMs. Jimmie Johnson has won 5 of the last 7 races here, including this race last year; Tony Stewart won here in the fall.

Safe Bets:

1. Jimmie Johnson (5:2) – As noted above, California native Jimmie Johnson has dominated this track in recent years with 5 wins in his last 7 starts (both spring and fall dates) and an average finish of 5.3, the best among active drivers. Johnson qualified 16th for the race and was 13th in Happy Hour.

2. Carl Edwards (3:1): Edwards has the second-best average finish at Fontana at a 9.2 with one win and 10 top-10 finishes. Off to a strong start in 2011, Edwards won at Las Vegas a few weeks ago and is currently 2nd in Cup points. He qualified 18th, but was up to 3rd on the speed chart in final practice and very happy with his race car.

Dark Horse:

1. Jeff Burton (30:1): Burton has shown some nice speed in the car so far this weekend, qualifying 7th and running 10th in Happy Hour. Though he’s never won a race at Fontana, Burton finished 3rd in this race last year.


The forecast calls for about a half an inch of rain Saturday night, so teams will be contending with a green race track on Sunday. Look for a competition caution early on for crews to adjust the cars accordingly. The forecast for Sunday is cool and overcast with a 20% chance of rain.
