    The SRD Cup Series makes its first trip to California this year to battle it out at Auto Club Speedway. This track has statistically seen a high attrition rate, so a mixture of speed and luck will end up deciding the victor this weekend.

    Last week, JJ Jordan scored the second victory of his 5 year career, holding off Keith Batson and Jerry Towns to win at Daytona. He will need some more of that speed this weekend as the teams contest this two mile track.

    Race info:
    125 laps/250 miles

    2014 Pole Sitter: J Braun (38.339sec)
    2014 Winner: J Hooper, Sr (16 laps led)

    We're hoping for a repeat performance this weekend out here. This is one of my favorite tracks. Nice, big, wide, and fast. We'll hold her wide open all day long. We hope to unload fast and run strong.

    Got my first career win in one of the old leagues at this track, hopefully we can duplicate that and make a case for the chase.

    We are coming into Cali looking for a better finish this week and to show that V2E is here and competitive and capable of fighting for a title this season.

    We've got a fast Asher Racing Chevy this week. Excited about the pole, hope we can keep the 79 out front all day.

    JG#29: "Qualified 6th, which is by far the best I've started here at Auto Club. Matt starts 22nd, and Joey 24th. Hopefully all three SRD, Inc. cars can stay out of trouble and come home in one piece."

    Zoom - "Had a great run last weekend in Daytona and we follow it up with a solid effort in qualifying. Can't wait for the race. This is one of the best tracks for running the rim so we'll see if we can get our car tuned up right for some high side hustling during the race."

    @zweb95: We've got @WJGRacing hooked up! Daytona Champ JJ Jordan leads the way at P4, myself at P5, and Mike Grube P7. Let's see of we can't bring them home in close to the same way!

    Heck if we pick off drivers one at a time, we could definitely win this thing. Lot of laps to be ran, and a lot can happen.

    After the disaster at Daytona, I'm ready to take on the field, kicking it off in P7 with my teammates just ahead. Going to be a good race!

    wow not the best qualifying by our V2E cars, but we are certain our race set ups are golden for Sunday.

    Brendan Gorman: Clearly we hit on something our teammates didn't. I should be ecstatic about starting on the front row but as a team owner I'm concerned about Carl and Chandler. We've gotta find the handling for those guys, they've got the same engine as me so I know they're not underpowered.
