The green flag drops for the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway in suburban Phoenix on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET. Following an electric start to the season at Daytona and two quick 1.5-mile tracks in Atlanta and Las Vegas, Phoenix is the Monster Energy NASCAR cup series’ first race at the tighter quarters of the one-mile loop in ISM Raceway. Kevin Harvick has won four of the last five March races at this track and is the 9-4 preferred to accumulate another win in the latest 2019 TicketGuardian 500 chances. Fellow veteran and Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin is getting 16-1, while Kurt Busch reaches 30-1 NASCAR in Phoenix odds after a strong start to his period that has him eighth in the NASCAR standings. Before you make your 2019 TicketGuardian 500 selections, be sure to look at the NASCAR at Phoenix projected leaderboard from the SportsLine Projection Model.
Produced by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information scientist Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors like track record and recent results into consideration.
It made some huge calls in NASCAR this past year, such as correctly casting wins for Kyle Busch in Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. in Sonoma. Plus it is off to a powerful start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin a top-four competition and nailing eight of the top 10 drivers at last week’s Pennzoil 400, which included placing winner Joey Logano in its own projected top five. Is way up.
Grew up around race tracks. Big events at places like ISM Raceway have been in his blood. His version has now simulated Sunday’s 2019 NASCAR in Phoenix race 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For the 2019 TicketGuardian 500, we could tell you the version is high on Clint Bowyer, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite heading off as a very long shot 25-1 NASCAR chances. He is a goal for anyone searching for a huge payday.
Bowyer broke a five-season drought without a win and proceeded to catch a pair of victories at Martinsville and Michigan on the way to some 12th-place finish in the NASCAR Playoffs. This season, he’s added a top-five complete at Atlanta and has shown impressive speed occasionally. Bowyer has seven career top-10s at Phoenix and won a truck series race at this track in 2010.
Bowyer, who pushes for Stewart-Haas Racing, was also second in one of the year’s Daytona Duels and closed out a year’s NASCAR schedule using an eight-place ending at Homestead. He will also come equipped into the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 using a similar car setup to teammates Harvick and Aric Almirola.
Among those shocking 2019 NASCAR in Phoenix picks from the version: Kevin Harvick, a nine-time winner at ISM Raceway along with the very best Vegas favourite, makes a strong run but falls short of winning it all.
Harvick has made a career from getting to the front of the pack consistently at this track. In fact, he has finished in the top 10 at 11 consecutive starts at ISM Raceway
