As the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) heads west for round three of the 2016 NASCAR Goes West campaign, the No.32 Go Fas Racing team will be heading to sunny Southern California and the Auto Club Speedway with Jeffrey Earnhardt for the 20th annual Auto Club 400 in Fontana, CA.
Sunday’s event will mark Earnhardt’s first career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at the fast 2.0-mile track, and his fifth career NSCS start. The Mooresville, NC native made his two starts this season at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
When it comes to racing in the “Golden State”; Earnhardt has two previous starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS), where he earned a best finish of 23rd in the 2014 event driving for Johnny Davis Motorsports.
Jeffrey Earnhardt on Fontana:
“I’m looking forward to this Sunday’s Auto Club 400 in Fontana. Being out of the car last week was tough, so I’m pretty eager to get back in the seat. We want to keep building on our progress and get the No.32 Can-Am/Kappa Ford up in the field.”
Crew Chief Wally Rogers will be bringing chassis GFR-803 to serve as the primary car. This chassis was last ran in Atlanta two weeks ago with Jeffrey. Chassis GFR-802 will serve as the backup car.
