We are counting down the days to the season-opening Daytona 500 and for the amount of days left to the 2011 Sprint Cup’s opening race we’ll reveal a magic number in NASCAR stats and what it means. 21 days left, so today’s number is: 21

21 Sprint Cup races that have been run at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. Jeff Gordon won the inaugural Cup race at the 2-mile track in June 1997. Jimmie Johnson has the most wins with five, followed by Gordon and Matt Kenseth with three each. No other driver has more than one win. The lone Sprint Cup race at Fontana in 2011 is scheduled for March 27, the fifth race of the season.
