The 2019 OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series Series Auto Club 400 race at Auto Club Speedway started with Dan Berghoff capturing the pole and Jim Westerfield recording the fastest lap of the race. Bobby McCormick gained 30 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Ed Adams led 61 laps, with Charles Idell going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 1 caution with 14 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with 3 disconnects in a 39 car field ending with Charles Idell capturing his 1st win of the season with Vernon Margheim finishing 2nd, Ken Schulz 3rd and Joel Kilburn capturing 4th.

This week the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series moves to the STP 500 race at Martinsville Speedway with the current playoff leader Josh Mayeu looking for ways to maintain his lead in the Series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?

We shall see when the green flag drops at 11:40 am Eastern time.

In the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series points championship, Dwayne McArthur 2nd, Ed Adams 3rd, in Joel Kilburn 4th and Eddie Jones in 5th

The Martinsville race will be intense, and expect to see close battles all over the track.
