Race Preview: Auto Club Speedway

In Dario's Words

Race History:  

2005 - Started 1st / Finished 1st

2004 - Started 9th / Finished 6th

Fontana, CA

"We haven't raced in Fontana in quite awhile, but I won the last time IndyCars raced there in 2005, which is cool.  We've had kind of an up and down year on the ovals this year.  We obviously won at Indy, but struggled at Texas and Milwaukee.  It's going to be a tough race as the asphalt has aged at Fontana and the track has lost grip and it's quite bumpy...all of which make it more of a challenge.  Every time I go to Fontana, I think about my friend Greg, so I kind of have mixed emotions out there.  But I think it's a cool way to end the season with a 500-miler!  Not to mention there's an In N' Out burger up the road."
