PALA, CA – Pala Casino Spa Resort will be representing the final NASCAR Cup Series race on Auto Club Speedway’s two-mile oval on Feb. 26, 2023.
Auto Club Speedway announced in November that the final race on its two-mile track will be named the Pala Casino 400. The event is the second race of the NASCAR Cup Series regular season and the highly anticipated follow-up to the DAYTONA 500. It is also part of a partnership that makes Pala Casino Spa Resort the Official Casino of Auto Club Speedway. In addition, Chris Buescher’s No. 17 RFK Ford will carry Pala Casino colors when the field takes the green flag for the historic event.
“Our fans will notice right away the enthusiasm Pala Casino brings to the table,” said Auto Club Speedway President Dave Allen. “They are determined to create an unforgettable experience for our fans, and we look forward to working with them to make this final race on the two-mile oval an event for the ages.”
Located 50 miles east of Los Angeles in Fontana, Auto Club Speedway is California’s premier motorsports facility, hosting over 320 days of track activity each year including a NASCAR Cup Series weekend. The two-mile D-shaped oval is one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit.
“As a casino that greatly appreciated competitive racing, Pala is thrilled to be the title sponsor of the Pala Casino 400 race in Fontana, and this historic final race at the Auto Club Speedway,” said Coley McAvoy, Pala Casino spokesperson. “We value our new partnership with Chris Buescher and RFK Racing, as well as our continued partnership with NASCAR as we look forward to a very exciting event in February.”
