As the summer sets on Labor Day weekend, NASCAR roars back into Southern California for the SONY HD 500 at Auto Club Speedway. This is the second to last race before the "Chase to the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup" gets under way and if action is what you crave, you will not want to miss it! Johnson will race to solidify his place in front of the field and will be gunning for another win at his home track. The El Cajon, Calif., native took his very first checkers in 2002 at Auto Club Speedway and has an impressive average finish of 7.6 in the NEXTEL Cup races here.
The SONY HD 500 ticket is a reserved grandstand seat in rows 1-10 and a pre-race pit pass will allow fans a chance to cruise pit road and sign the start/finish line. Both are valid only on Sunday, September 3, 2006.
