Fans can watch the Sprint Cup Series at California Auto Club Speedway live online and see if NASCAR will gets its fifth different winner in five weeks.
So far this season four different drivers have taken the checkered flag, but Sunday’s Auto Club 400 could bring the first repeat winner after Matt Kenseth took pole position.
Kenseth was given a shiny white surfboard for his accomplishment, though he said it’s not of much use to him.
“I’m certainly not going to stand on it in the water, if that’s what you’re wondering,” Kenseth said. “Wasn’t a lot of surfing in Wisconsin where I grew up.”
The race starts Sunday at 3 pm. Coverage is available on Fox, and also streaming live online.
Fans who watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Auto Club 400 live online will see if this year’s race lives up to the drama seen last year. Denny Hamlin suffered a season-threatening back injury in the last lap of the 2013 race in California, but he said that’s all in the past now.
“It was a bad weekend for sure and obviously affected the rest of our season and beyond,” Hamlin told reporters Friday. “It’s just you have to move on and you have to deal with the adversity and be stronger from it. That’s what I’m trying to do…
“Coming in here, I think the only time I thought about the wreck was the first corner going off in Turn 3 the first lap of practice where you kind of think about what happened and things like that. But literally you’re running such speeds here and you’re on edge so much that the next time I came around it was an afterthought and I haven’t thought of it since.”
