Picks For The Win: SUBWAY FRESH FIT 500 @ Phoenix

The Jewel of the Desert Sun gets to host the second race of the season this year.  Here are my picks for the win for tomorrow’s race at Phoenix.

No Brainers
1.  #11 Denny Hamlin  Hamlin is good on flat tracks and looking to rebound from last week’s disappointment.
2.  #5 Mark Martin  Martin knows how to win here, and is looking to make some more noise this season being his last with Hendrick Motorsports.
3.  #48 Jimmie Johnson  Johnson wants to put Daytona behind him and get back to winning at a place where he can more or less control his own destiny.
Guys To Watch
1.  #17 Matt Kenseth Kenseth knows how to win here, but has recently been quiet.  Look for him to be around when it counts.
2.  #22 Kurt Busch Busch knows how to win at Phoenix, when he got his win in 2005 he dominated that race.  It could happen again.
3.  #6 David Ragan Ragan was good at Daytona, could he be having a break out year?  If he can pull off a similar effort at Phoenix, that could be the case.

One Comment:

  1. I'd put Carl Edwards in there too:-He's on the pole. Set a new track record, in fact.-He finished 2nd today in Nationwide.-He finished 2nd at Daytona-He won there last fall, second last race, before winning at Homestead. He's got momentum.
