· California Native

o Engineer, Julian Pena, grew up in Aliso Viejo which is approximately 50 miles from the Auto Club Speedway. Pena is a graduate of Stanford University.

Stenhouse on Auto Club
“I really enjoy racing at Auto Club. The tires wear quickly so you slide around and can run anywhere on the track. Mike (Kelley) and I had some solid runs at Fontana in Nationwide. We are coming off our career best finish so we will carry that momentum into this weekend and hopefully get another strong finish in our No. 17 Ford Ecoboost Ford.”

Kelley on Auto Club:
“This is one of the tracks that we marked at the beginning of the season that we felt like we could have a good run at. Bristol was a great weekend for our No. 17 team and gives us extra confidence going into Fontana. We felt like we learned some things at Vegas that will transfer to Fontana. I feel strongly that we will have another strong run this weekend.”
