Find out how to watch the NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers battle it out in California in the race whose name has everyone talking.
There’s one stop left in the NASCAR Goes West Tour, and the NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers will take the first stab at taming Fontana in the Roseanne 300. The uniquely named race came about since there was no title sponsor up until pretty much the last minute, which led to some creative thinking on the part of ABC, which is pulling out all the stops trying to promote its sitcom as it returns to TV after 20 years.
Since FOX is broadcasting the race on FS1, it will be interesting to hear what their announcers call it since they likely will not have to refer to the name of a show on a competing network. Get ready to hear a lot of California 300 or XFINITY 300 this evening.
Whatever it’s called, it should be an interesting affair just because of the lack of Cup Series intruders. Austin Dliion and Joey Logano are entered, and have been among the fastest drivers in practice, but no other drivers from the top series are involved.
That’s significant because at the moment, Tyler Reddick is the only driver running for the XFINITY Series championship who already has a victory in 2018. A win at Fontana would give someone else a chance to have the security of knowing they will almost certainly be in the playoffs, which is just about invaluable at this time of year.
