The Auto Club 400 is just around the corner, and NASCAR fans are eager to see who will take home the checkered flag this year. With a new season comes new challenges and opportunities for drivers, and the Auto Club Speedway is no exception. As we gear up for the race, let’s take a look at the projected winner and race results.

The projected winner of this year’s Auto Club 400 is none other than Kyle Larson. The 28-year-old driver had an impressive 2020 season, finishing in the top 10 in 20 races, including six wins. Larson is known for his speed and precision on the track, and he has consistently performed well at Auto Club Speedway, finishing in the top 10 in his last six starts.

Larson’s strong performance at the recent Las Vegas race, where he led for 103 laps and finished in second place, only adds to his momentum heading into the Auto Club 400. With a new team and a renewed focus, Larson is poised to add another win to his impressive record.

As for the race results, Larson will face stiff competition from other top drivers in the NASCAR Cup Series. Defending Cup Series champion Chase Elliott will be looking to improve on his 2021 season, which has seen mixed results so far. Elliott has one win under his belt this year, and his experience and talent make him a formidable opponent on any track.

Martin Truex Jr., who won the 2018 Auto Club 400, will also be in the running for the checkered flag. Truex has been consistent this season, finishing in the top 10 in four out of five races, including two second-place finishes.

Another driver to watch is Denny Hamlin, who won the Daytona 500 earlier this year. Hamlin has been a dominant force in the Cup Series in recent years, finishing in the top five in the championship standings for the past seven seasons. He has yet to win at Auto Club Speedway, but his talent and experience make him a strong contender.

Ultimately, anything can happen in NASCAR racing, and the Auto Club 400 is no exception. But with his recent success and past performance at the track, Kyle Larson is the top pick for the projected winner. Whether he takes home the checkered flag or not, the Auto Club 400 is sure to be an exciting and action-packed race.
