NASCAR Drivers Greg Biffle, David Reutimann, Sam Hornish Jr., Landon Cassill Give Auto Club Speedway Hard Card Members “The Scoop” During Exclusive Q&A Session
SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2011) – Auto Club Speedway Hard Card members were not only treated to an exclusive Q & A session with NASCAR drivers Greg Biffle, David Reutimann, Sam Hornish, Jr. and Landon Cassill following Tuesday’s one-day Goodyear Tire test at the track, but they were also given the inside “scoop” on what to expect when the Auto Club 400 rolls around in March.
“It’s important to get the right tire for the right track and I am so thankful that I came out here (Auto Club Speedway) to do the tire test,” said Biffle. “I don’t want to make any promises, but the racing is going to be so much better here. We’re going to be able to race side-by-side and up and down the race track.”
Biffle, driver of the No.16 Roush Fenway Racing Ford, Reutimann, driver of the No. 00 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota, Hornish Jr., driver of the No. 12 Penske Racing Dodge and Cassill, driver of the No. 51 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, entertained a roomful of Hard Card members for a Q&A session at Auto Club Speedway.
Members learned everything from Hornish’s biggest thrill in racing, to who Cassill follows on Twitter. They also learned that NASCAR team owner Michael Waltrip is just as fun at the office as he is while filming the Aaron’s TV commercials.
“Mike’s a funny guy,” says Reutimann. “The joking Michael just likes to have a good time.”
Tuesday’s event was just one of many enjoyed by Hard Card members for renewing their season tickets by the deadline.
In March, hundreds of Hard Card members enjoyed a Q&A with Juan Pablo Montoya, driver of the No. 42 Target Chevrolet prior to the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway. Past Hard Card events have included breakfast with Jimmie Johnson, driver of the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet, exclusive Q&A’s with Mark Martin, driver of the No. 5 GoDaddy.com Chevrolet, and Kasey Kahne, driver of the No. 4 Red Bull Toyota, along with a special event at Dave and Buster’s featuring Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota.
