The newly reconfigured Phoenix that is…
1. Jimmie Johnson He likes these sorts of tracks and does well at these sorts of places
2. Jeff Gordon Now that he’s finally figured out how to win at the old Phoenix they changed the track on him…but he does well here
3. Denny Hamlin He’ll be looking to contend for the win after such disappointment the last few times here.
Guys To Watch
1. Mark Martin Can he stay up front and get Michael Waltrip racing their first win. He’s on the Pole by the way
2. Kurt Busch Can he bounce back from his unfortunate turn of events at Daytona or was that the beginning of a trend.
3. Ryan Newman He won the spring race here in the past…can he do it again?
