By Jerry Bonkowski and Bob Moore

2 BRAD KESELOWSKI, Ford

Team: Penske Racing

WHERE HE STANDS: Brad Keselowski moved into first place atop the Sprint Cup standings after Sunday's race at Bristol Motor Speedway. He leads points leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. by 10 points and the third-ranked tie of Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards by 11 points.

FONTANA RECORD: 5 career starts, 0 wins, 0 top-5s, 0 top-10s, 0 poles. Best career finish: 18th in 2012. Finished 23rd in this race last year and was 23rd in the 2012 race there.

LOOKING AHEAD: Keselowski has been very consistent in the first four races, finishing third in the first two races, winning at Las Vegas and finishing 14th at Bristol. He's off to the best start of his Sprint Cup career. Here's his thoughts about Sunday's race in Fontana: "The win (at Las Vegas) is a feather in our cap without a doubt. The new Chase format dictates that we have to win and we feel better having checked that box early in the season. The points lead shows that we have been consistent and it is always enjoyable to be on top."

LOOKING BACK: Keselowski finished 14th at Bristol, but because Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished 24th, Keselowski was able to take over the Sprint Cup points lead.

ETC.: Keselowski has completed 99.8 percent (977) of the 979 total laps contested in five career starts at Fontana. His average start there is 17.4 and his average finish is 22.8. He has zero DNFs there.

88 DALE EARNHARDT JR., Chevrolet

Team: Hendrick Motorsports

WHERE HE STANDS: After leading the Sprint Cup standings for the first three weeks, Dale Earnhardt Jr. fell to second place after Bristol. He trails new points leader Brad Keselowski by 10 points and leads the third-ranked tie between Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards by one point.

FONTANA RECORD: 21 career starts, 0 wins, 5 top-5s, 6 top-10s, 0 poles. Best career finish: Second in fall 2006 and last year's race. Finished second in this race last year and was third in the 2012 race there.

LOOKING AHEAD: Even with his 24th-place showing at Bristol, Earnhardt is still off to the best start of his 15-year Sprint Cup career. Prior to his win in this season's Daytona 500, his last two wins were at Michigan, a two-mile track virtually identical to this Sunday's race at Auto Club Speedway. Here's his thoughts on Fontana: "The last couple of times we've been to California, we've had some good race cars. It's a track where we can move around and change our line. The driver can have a little input on how the car is driving. You can find speed out there. If we are tuning on the car and studying hard during practice, I think we'll have a good weekend."

LOOKING BACK: After remaining in the top 10 for much of the first part of Sunday's race at Bristol, the handling went away on Earnhardt's car and he finished 24th, one lap off the lead lap.

ETC.: Earnhardt has completed 92.3 percent (4,601) of the 4,984 total laps contested in 21 career starts at Fontana. His average start there is 19.7 and his average finish is 19.9. He has five DNFs there.

24 JEFF GORDON, Chevrolet

Team: Hendrick Motorsports

WHERE HE STANDS: After losing two spots following the Las Vegas race, Jeff Gordon regained those two spots and moved back into third after Bristol (tied with Carl Edwards). Gordon and Edwards both trail new points leader Brad Keselowski by 11 points, second-ranked Dale Earnhardt Jr. by one point and lead fifth-ranked Jimmie Johnson by nine points.

FONTANA RECORD: 24 career starts, 3 wins, 10 top-5s, 11 top-10s, 2 poles. Best career finish: First in spring 1997, spring 1999 and spring 2004. Finished 11th in this race last year and was 26th in the 2012 race there.

LOOKING AHEAD: Gordon continues to fly under the radar, which is a good thing, thus keeping pressure off him as he bids to win a fifth Sprint Cup championship this year (and if he does so, he's already said he'll retire then). Here's Gordon's thoughts on Sunday's race at Fontana: "I think a lot of drivers like racing at Fontana because the racetrack is so wide and there are so many lines and grooves you can race through the corner. And I think the fans like it because the drivers will race two, three and sometimes four wide."

LOOKING BACK: Gordon had a good car all day at Bristol and came home with a strong seventh-place finish.

ETC.: Gordon has completed 99.2 percent (5,686) of the 5,734 total laps contested in 24 career starts at Fontana. His average start there is 13.2 and his average finish is 11.8. He has two DNFs there.

99 CARL EDWARDS, Ford

Team: Roush Fenway Racing

WHERE HE STANDS: Carl Edwards climbed three positions in the standings after his win at Bristol, from a tie for sixth-place to a tie for third-place with Jeff Gordon. The pair trail new points leader Brad Keselowski by 11 points, second-ranked Dale Earnhardt Jr. by one point and lead fifth-ranked Jimmie Johnson by nine points.

FONTANA RECORD: 16 career starts, 1 wins, 8 top-5s, 13 top-10s, 1 poles. Best career finish: First in spring 2008. Finished fourth in this race last year and was fifth in the 2012 race there.

LOOKING AHEAD: Edwards has become quite proficient at Fontana, with eight top-fives and 13 top-10s in 16 overall starts. He's riding momentum from Sunday's win in Bristol and could make it back-to-back wins this Sunday. Here's his thoughts: "(With not having a win prior to Bristol), concerned is not really a strong enough word, but it definitely got my attention. ... Now we get an opportunity to prove that we deserve to win (he won Bristol under caution) and honestly, it might have been a lot more exciting. With everything like that there's always an opportunity, but I did not want to see that caution, I did not at all, so I'm glad the rain came. There was some higher powers at work there and it worked out great."

LOOKING BACK: Edwards powered to a strong win at Bristol. He was in the right place at the right time when caution fell on the final lap.

ETC.: Edwards has completed 99.6 percent (3,718) of the 3,734 total laps contested in 16 career starts at Fontana. His average start there is 18.8 and his average finish is 8.4. He has zero DNFs there.

48 JIMMIE JOHNSON, Chevrolet

Team: Hendrick Motorsports

WHERE HE STANDS: After climbing two places in the standings after Las Vegas, Jimmie Johnson gave back what he gained by dropping back two spots after Bristol He trails points leader Brad Keselowski by 20 points, is nine points behind the third-ranked tie between Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards, and leads sixth-ranked Joey Logano by two points.

FONTANA RECORD: 19 career starts, 5 wins, 12 top-5s, 14 top-10s, 1 poles. Best career finish: First in spring 2002, summer 2005, summer 2008, fall 2009 and spring 2010. Finished 12th in this race last year and was 10th in the 2012 race there.

LOOKING AHEAD: Johnson is still in search of his first win of 2014. Fontana could very well be the place: it's one of his most successful tracks. It's hard to pick against him. Here's his thoughts on Sunday's race: "I love going back to California to race. If I had a home track, Fontana is definitely mine. It was the site of my first win in '02 so it's very special to me. I have some local favorite restaurants I like to hit up and get to see a lot of friends. We have a full day of media on Thursday - which is great to be able to stop in Los Angeles on the way out there and hit that market from a media standpoint. We are doing some cool mainstream media hits it's good for me, good for Lowe's and good for the sport."

LOOKING BACK: Johnson struggled with tire issues and handling at Bristol, ending up with a disappointing 19th-place finish.

ETC.: Johnson has completed an outstanding 100 percent (4,484) of the 4,484 total laps contested in 19 career starts at Fontana. His average start there is 9.6 and his average finish is an excellent 5.7. He has zero DNFs there.

22 JOEY LOGANO, Ford

Team: Penske Racing

WHERE HE STANDS: After climbing four spots following Phoenix and two spots after Las Vegas and into fourth place, Joey Logano gave back two positions in the standings, dropping to sixth after Bristol. He trails points leader Brad Keselowski by 22 points, is two points behind fifth-ranked Jimmie Johnson and leads seventh-ranked Denny Hamlin by one point.
