NASCAR fans will see Michael Fishman, who plays D.J.in the series, serve as Honorary Grand Marshal and give the command "Drivers, start your engines".

Roseanne is coming back to ABC, and the network is doing the most logical thing possible to advertise the sitcom's reboot: it's naming a NASCAR race after the show.

"I knew we had a really good race vehicle, honestly, after the first adjustment we made on the auto".

Located 50 miles east of Los Angeles in Fontana, Auto Club Speedway is California's premier motorsports facility, hosting over 320 days of track activity each year including the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Auto Club 400 weekend, March 16-18, 2018.

"People kept asking 'When are you going to win again?"

His first career victory at Fontana even moved Truex into the overall points lead, thanks to Harvick's woes. Busch beat Truex back out onto the track and when the pitting cycled through with 36 laps to go, he had the lead and the clean air that means so much in Fontana. "We left pit road, and I drove away from him".

Kevin Harvick, who won the previous three races and was favourite to claim a fourth straight victory in the Auto Club 400, crashed early in the first stage after running into Kyle Larson's vehicle.

"We were just tight as we went through every round", Harvick said. "I don't know that that was his fault. Trying to get a little too much right there". Austin Dillon earned the fifth position on the grid, followed by Joey Logano, Kurt Busch and Ryan Blaney. "You know you're going to hit hard, and I feel like I should be hurting right now as hard as that was, so that's a testament to what NASCAR has done with safety because I feel like I should be looking at you amusing right now and I feel great". Harvick had won in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix before arriving in his home state for an attempt to become the second driver in this century to win four consecutive.

Busch led until he was passed by Truex with 39 laps to go.

During time trials that saw only 24 of the 37 cars entered pass inspection and make qualifying attempts, Truex won the first Busch Pole Award of the season under sponsorship announced this week.

Jimmie Johnson, who had not finished inside the top 10 all season, got back on track a bit with a ninth-place finish. Johnson's winless streak reached 28 races, also his longest in a career that began in 2001.
