NASCAR’s western road trip has been great to Harvick, who will be going for a sweep of the three Cup Series races in Sunday’s Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. Harvick will be looking for his fourth consecutive win overall after triumphs at Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix and he's posted at 3/1 odds to capture his first four-race winning streak.

While oddsmakers love Harvick, they are disrespecting seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson to win Sunday (25/1). Johnson has had a poor start to the season in the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 but he leads drivers in almost every category at Auto Club Speedway. In 23 starts at the track, Johnson is the leader in wins (six), runner-up results (five), top-five finishes (12), top 10s (16), laps led (980), average finish (7.13) and lead-lap finishes (23).

With the forecast of cooler temperatures in Fontana this weekend at the two-mile track, Martin Truex Jr. feels that could even the playing field. That's bad news for Ford and good news for Truex and our pick to win Sunday, Chase Elliott.

Elliott has to win sometime, right? NASCAR's new most popular driver might have his best shot Sunday on a track similar to one of his best in Michigan. Over the last six races at Michigan and Fontana, Elliott leads all drivers in average finish and driver rating with 71 laps led.

In Elliott’s Cup and Xfinity Series career (10 combined starts), he has never finished outside the top 10 on a two-mile speedway. In his two previous Cup starts at Auto Club, Elliott has finished sixth (2016) and 10th (2017) from an average starting position of 10.5.

Matt DiBenedetto, David Ragan, and Trevor Bayne are low-salary options that have solid place-differentials at Fontana the past two races.

Opinion: Not so fast on NASCAR's changing of the guard .
<p>Before this NASCAR season kicked off in February, all the talk was about one thing: the new guys. Young drivers this, young drivers that. The way most media pundits made it seem, we were going to have a championship four all under the age of 25 this season. Not so fast.</p>CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Boy, was eeeeeveryone wrong.
