|Kyle Busch is 6/1 to win at Fontana Sunday.|
This week at Auto Club Speedway, we get to see the low downforce package let loose on the wide 2-mile layout. While there was plenty of excitement for the package in two races last season, the jury is still out how its performed this year.
The NASCAR west coast swing comes to end after three straight west races that began with Las Vegas two weeks ago and continued last week at Phoenix. Lets just say results from the first two weren't as sexy as we may have hoped with the new package. Sure Vegas had some wind, but Phoenix was beautiful and despite the fantastic finish, the racing wasn't the best I've seen on the track.
Last season when the package was introduced which shortened the rear spoiler and front splitter, we saw lots of passing. There was outstanding competition with several teams showing they could contend with the power organizations. Drivers absolutely love the package. But I have to call it as I see it, and as much as I have a west coast bias for its NASCAR races, the last two races left feeling me kind of empty.
There were only seven lead changes among four drivers Sunday at Phoenix, where Kevin Harvick again led the most laps (139 of 313) while winning for his track record eighth time. New package, same results, and there appeared to be even a bigger edge for the top guys, which has kind of a reverse effect as was intended by NASCAR with the package.
Will that again be the case at Fontana's 2-mile wide layout this weekend?
