After not racing at Auto Club Speedway in 2021, the NASCAR Cup Series is heading back to Fontana, California this Sunday.

The WISE Power 400 will be the first NASCAR race at the track since March of 2020. It will be fun to watch what happens on the wide track this year. A rookie won the Daytona 500 to start the 2022 last season. The seventh version of the Next Gen Car appeared to level the playing field between large teams and small teams. This could all lead to high-speed action for fans to enjoy.

Here is the data for the track and race that the drivers and teams will be facing.
