The 2018 Auto Club 400 winner and 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) Champion Martin Truex Jr. will make his mark at Auto Club Speedway’s Walk of Fame on Friday, March 15 at 9:00 a.m. outside Gate B at the east end of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone.
As part of the Walk of Fame tradition, Truex Jr. will put on his race shoes and place his footprints into the cement next to his plaque. Like past Walk of Fame recipients, he will also be presented a surfboard from the Speedway’s Official Sub Sandwich – Jersey Mike’s.
Truex Jr. won his first Auto Club 400 in his 18th start at the two-mile oval, and his 16th career MENCS race in 446 starts. Truex Jr. became the first driver to win the pole position and all three stages in a MENCS race. The Auto Club 400 accounted for Truex Jr.’s first MENCS victory and stage wins of the 2018 season.
Auto Club Speedway began the Walk of Fame tradition in 1998 after Jeff Gordon took the checkered flag at the inaugural 1997 NASCAR Cup event at Auto Club Speedway.
Friday, March 15, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. PT. Open to ticket holders only.
