There aren’t too many places we’d rather be on a Sunday than trackside at a NASCAR race watching our favorite drivers compete.
Thank goodness we have Fontana pulling the rear end to round out the February racing slate on FOX.
While it’s true that last weekend’s Daytona 500 was the Super Bowl of the season, Auto Club Speedway in Southern California’s Inland Empire is unique in its own right.
“It’s so wide and you can see cars three or four wide,” explains FOX Sports NASCAR pundit Bob Pockrass. “And there aren’t many tracks where drivers have that many options on how to go fast.”
There are some tracks, Pockrass continued, where you have to be good at a particular lane. Fontana is not one of them.
“When drivers have options, it allows them to tailor the car more to their own style,” he noted.
Speaking of style, when it comes to our experts’ race day routine, Bob’s is booked and busy.
“My race days consist of a lot of walking, talking to different people and trying to get information. I give that information to the producers, to the pit reporters and to the stand.
Oh, and I will be filling my Twitter feed with all the exciting things going on.”
Even if you can’t be in the middle of Sunday’s race like Bob, you can still participate by playing our FOX Bet Super 6 contest.
FOX Bet Super 6 is a free contest where you can choose six different results in the NASCAR Stage 2 contest to win Clint Bowyer’s $10,000. You just have to download the FOX Bet Super 6 App on your phone or mobile device, make your picks and submit your selections before the race starts this Sunday.
And this Super 6 NASCAR Stage 2 challenge is extra special because Sunday’s race at Fontana is the last before the track’s anticipated redesign.
Imagine how you can brag to your friends if you take advantage of this one!
remember – Bet FOX Super 6 is free to play, easy, fun and people actually win. So before you head to the app to make your picks, find out who Bob is riding with this weekend!
What position will the Pole Sitter finish at the end of Stage 2?
1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-11, 12+
“Well, I mean, it looks like it’s going to rain on Saturday, so whoever’s on the pole probably isn’t going to be the best car. And just because you’re the fastest car doesn’t mean you’re going to run. the best.”
Which of these drivers will have the fastest lap at the end of stage 2?
Bubba Wallace, Tyler Reddick, Daniel Suarez, Corey LaJoie, Ross Chastain, Christopher Bell
“Tyler Reddick was the fastest last year and I expect him to be fast again.”
Prediction: Tyler Reddick
Which of these drivers will have the best finish at the end of the race?
Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Larson, Martin Truex Jr., Alex Bowman
“I think the Hendrick cars will be fast. I’m sitting here trying to decide between Larson and Chase and Bowman, but I’ll go with Alex. He likes this track.”
Prediction: Alex Bowman
Which team will have the most laps led — Joe Gibbs Racing or Stewart-Haas Racing — at the end of Stage 2 and how many laps will they lead?
1-13, 14-20, 21-26, 27-33, 34-40, 41-47, 48-54, 55-61, 62-66, 67+
“I’d say Joe Gibbs Racing is the strongest team right now, so they’ll lead 35 laps.”
Prediction: Joe Gibbs Racing, 34-40
Which manufacturer, Chevrolet or Ford, will have the most cars in the top 15 at the end of Stage 2 and how many will they have?
1-3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 or more
“I think Chevrolet will be good at this track. They were last year.”
Prediction: Chevrolet, 8
Which driver, Joey Logano or Kyle Busch, will have the best finish at the end of Stage 2 and by how many positions?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8-9, 10-12, 13+
“I’ll go with Kyle Busch because he’s been really strong the last two weeks, but he’s not done. And I think he’s going to be running hard the whole time and he’s going to be ahead of Logano.”
Prediction: Kyle Busch, 2
Finally, Bob’s big tip for fans watching from home? Listen to your drivers.
“Fans should listen to their favorite drivers’ car radios as they talk to their crew chiefs during the race. And make sure you have your social media of choice and streaming to keep up with the discussions”.
There you have it guys. That extra $10,000 could really be yours if you play your game cars right!
