The TreatMyClot.com 300 by Janssen is a 300-mile (480 km) NASCAR Xfinity Series stock car race held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. The inaugural event occurred in 1997. The race is usually scheduled in late March as the fifth event of the schedule, and as a support event for the Sprint Cup Series' Auto Club 400 (although in 2008 it was held after the Cup Series race because of a rain delay). It has previously been held in October and late April or early May. Austin Dillon is the defending winner of the event, after winning it in 2016.
