NASCAR Drivers to Watch at Fontana

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series travels back to the West Coast's Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California.

So far in 2012, the Sprint Cup Series has raced at the Superspeedway (2.5-mile racetrack) in Daytona, the short, flat racetrack in Phoenix (1-mile racetrack), the intermediate racetrack in Las Vegas (1.5-mile racetrack) and the short, high-banked racetrack at Bristol (.5-mile racetrack).

There are only two types of racetracks that the Sprint Cup Series has yet to compete on: the two-mile racetrack and the road course. This week NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series will check the two-mile racetrack off the list.

In order to win at Auto Club Speedway, NASCAR teams must have horsepower and the perfect setup on their cars.

There is a lot of room for cars to move around at Auto Club Speedway, so finding the perfect balance in the car will be the key to winning the race.

Chevy cars have won six of the last eight races at Auto Club Speedway. They will be fast again on Sunday, but I would not count out the three drivers from Roush Fenway Racing (Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth and Greg Biffle) competing for the win.

So, who will be the drivers to beat this Sunday in the Auto Club 400?

Here is my list of five drivers who will have success this week and five drivers who will struggle in Sunday’s race.
