The NASCAR west coast swing concludes on Sunday afternoon with the 2018 Auto Club 400 from Fontana, Calif. (3:30 p.m. ET, Fox), and will start just like the previous two races out west have ended.
Kevin Harvick is on a rampage through the west with wins in Las Vegas and Phoenix. That followed his win in Atlanta, giving him three straight wins coming into Fontana.
“Three wins in a row happens so seldomly in this sport that whether you’re a fan of Kevin Harvick and Rodney Childers or not, you have to celebrate what they have accomplished,” said Mike Joy, who will call the race for Fox.
Harvick will start in the pole position on Sunday thanks to a top qualifying speed of 186.567 mph.
Starting just behind Harvick on Sunday is Kyle Busch in second position, just like he ended the last two weeks behind Harvick. Busch won in Fontana in 2013 and 2014, the last driver to win this race in back-to-back years.
Kyle Larson will try to join Busch in that regard, having won the 2017 race in California. Larson starts in third position on Sunday.
Joy is on play-by-play for Fox on Sunday beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET, joined by analysts Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip and Larry McReynolds. Online streaming is available through Fox Sports Go.

NASCAR news & notes
After news that longtime sponsor Lowes won’t return after this season, seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson said he has no plans to retire anytime soon:
“Retirement hasn’t been on my mind,” Johnson said Friday at Auto Club Speedway, site of Sunday’s Auto Club 400. “I want to win. I want to win an eighth championship.
“It’s really my desire to compete and to compete at a high level. I’m not done yet.”
Harvick and his three straight wins this season have been helped with the addition of driver Aric Almirola to the Stewart-Haas Racing team:
“That progression as a race team, when everybody ups the ante on the car, you learn something from each car and each person,” Harvick said. “The confidence in the company goes up. The evolution of things starts to happen more rapidly. Now that (Almirola’s) 10 car is in that evolution, it is good for our company.”
