Ryan Preece: “I am really excited to be racing the No. 18 Rheem Camry in Fontana this weekend. Auto Club Speedway is a worn out two-mile track that replicates a short-track. There will be a lot of moving around on the track and it will lead to some great racing. This is a big deal for me, having a sponsor like Rheem team up with me for my first start of 2018. I am looking forward to getting on track and hopefully ending the race in victory lane.”
