The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series continues its west coast swing, this time heading to Auto Club Speedway for the Auto Club 400.

However, that may not be the case with rain in the forecast for Sunday's Auto Club 400 from Auto Club Speedway.

"Drivers, start your engines!"

 

I don't know about you, but I've been waiting to hear those words. There's nothing like the 2020 Daytona 500 at The World Center of Racing.
