NASCAR at Phoenix: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for TicketGuardian 500

Kevin Harvick is off to a slower start than last year, but that doesn’t in any manner harm how dangerous he will probably be at ISM Raceway at Phoenix on Sunday for the TicketGuardian 500.

Harvick has nine career wins at the one-mile track and finishes in the top 10 in 65.6 percent of his races there. He’s undoubtedly the favorite to win.

As great as he is, Kyle Busch cannot be underestimated with just two career wins in Phoenix and seven 7s in his past seven races. He has finished in six of his seven attempts there in the top 4.

This race will probably be a duel between the two and whoever gets out ahead at the onset of the third stage will be the absolute favorite to win. This time we’re likely to select Busch to come out the victor, as he may have picked up the win last week had it not been for a speeding penalty on pit road.

The TicketGuardian 500 can be viewed Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.

Aric Almirola was quietly good this year with two top 10s in his last two races and just a pole to his title. He’ll likely have a fantastic week again as he has finishes of seventh, fourth and ninth at Phoenix in his past three runs at the track.
