Kyle Busch has it rolling right now. With four wins in his last five races counting NASCAR, Xfinity and the Truck Series, there is little the 33-year-old can do wrong at the moment.

All that being said he is absolutely the man to beat at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, Calif. Aside from the fact he has two wins in his last five races there, he has finished top 10 in 70 percent of his attempts on the track and has five top 5s in his last seven runs.

The two-mile intermediate track in California provides a new challenge for drivers this season as Daytona features restrictor plates and the other tracks have been on the 1.5-mile side.

This track presents a distinct challenge with tire wear, which played a direct role in the finish at Atlanta earlier this season when Kyle Larson lost the second stage almost purely because of this.

Busch found his way to the front of that race as well, but he'll have stiff competition as Martin Truex Jr.'s car has been extremely fast of late and he is the defending champion. Ryan Blaney and Aric Almirola have both been good as well so this won't be a cake walk for Busch.

What time does the Auto Club 400 start?

The Auto Club 400 will take place Sunday, March 17. Live coverage begins on FOX at 3:30 p.m. EST.

What channel is the Auto Club 400 on?

The Auto Club 400 will be broadcast nationally on FOX. The race can also be livestreamed on the Fox Sports Go app or by subscribing to fuboTV, which offers a seven-day free trial.
