ROSS CHASTAIN EXCITED FOR THE CALIFORNIA 300
Gaffney, S.C. (March 15, 2018) – Ross Chastain has finished in the top-20 or better in every race so far in the 2018 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, and his JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team is feeling very confident about this Saturday’s California 300 at Auto Club Speedway.
Three southern California-based companies – Future Media Sales, RM Parks, and Daley Technology Systems – will be on board Chastain’s No. 4 Chevrolet Camaro for this weekend’s race.
“I’m very proud of how my No. 4 JD Motorsports team has run so far this season,” said Chastain. “The West Coast Swing is always tough for a team our size, but these guys have done a great job bringing fast cars to every race. We have run really well before at Auto Club Speedway, but I’m hoping for my best career finish there this weekend. We got some great new sponsors on board this weekend with Future Media Sales, RM Parks, and Daley Technology Systems, so it’s going to be a great race.”
GARRETT SMITHLEY HAS THE KEYS TO SUCCESS AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY
Gaffney, S.C. (March 15, 2018) – Garrett Smithley and new sponsor, VehicleKEYS.com, are looking forward a great weekend at Auto Club Speedway. Smithley will be piloting the No. 0 VehicleKEYS.com Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series California 300.
This will be Smithley’s third time racing at Auto Club Speedway. Previously, Smithley has finished 23rd and 26th at the Fontana, C.A., track.
“Any race with a brand new sponsor on board is always a good race,” said Smithley. “I’m very thankful to VehicleKEYS.com for coming on board for our last stop on the West Coast Swing. Hopefully my JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team and I will give them a great finish there this weekend.”
VINNIE MILLER FINISHING UP HIS FIRST WEST COAST SWING AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY
Gaffney, S.C. (March 15, 2018) – Sunoco Rookie of Year candidate, Vinnie Miller, will be making his first career start at Auto Club Speedway (ACS) in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series California 300.
Miller, driver of the No. 01 JAS Expedited Trucking Chevrolet Camaro for team JD Motorsports with Gary Keller, is hoping that his past experience at the similar Michigan International Speedway, where he led his first laps in the ARCA racing series, will help him have a successful weekend at ACS.
“I’m really excited to go to Auto Club Speedway this weekend,” said Miller. “I’ve heard the track is really rough and bumpy, but it drives like Michigan (International Speedway). I had a really good run last year at Michigan, so I am hoping I will be able to pick up the lines of the track quickly. I’ll once again lean on my teammates on getting up to speed, and I’ve been watching races from the past few years to help me before we get there. I can’t thank the guys on this No. 01 JAS Expedited Trucking, Johnny Davis team enough for all the hard work they have put in during the West Coast Swing. I would really like to give them a good finish this weekend in California.”
MATT MILLS RACING AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY FOR THE FIRST TIME

“Auto Club Speedway will definitely be a challenge, but I’m confident that my teammates will give me good advice,” said Mills. “The car I’ll be racing this weekend is the same one I had in Vegas, and that was the best race I’ve had so far. All in all, I’m very excited to make my first laps around ACS this weekend.”
