To quote the great poet LL Cool J "we're going back to Cali, Cali, Cali, were going back to Cali, but just once this season."
OK maybe the song didn't go exactly that why, but you get the point. NASCAR races to the beautiful edge of the left coast, Fontana, California and the Auto Club speedway. This is the only date for this track in 2011, and honestly unlike what happened in Atlanta, I think this is the right call. There's no rich history at Auto Club speedway and southern Cal does seem all that interested in having to races. One race seems about right.
California is home to 7 drivers in Sunday's race: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, AJ Allmendinger, David Gilliland, Robby Gordon and Casey Mears. But really when you go to Cali, it's all about 5-time Jimmie Johnson. The dominator, dominated at his home track, with five victories at the Fontana track and he has won three of the last five races.
