The green flag drops for the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 in ISM Raceway in suburban Phoenix on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET. Following an electric start to the season at Daytona and 2 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 this one-mile loop in ISM Raceway. Kevin Harvick has won four of the last five March races in this track and will be the 9-4 preferred to collect another win in the latest 2019 TicketGuardian 500 chances. Fellow veteran and Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin is becoming 16-1, while Kurt Busch is at 30-1 NASCAR in Phoenix chances after a solid start to his period that has him eighth in the NASCAR standings. Prior to making your own 2019 TicketGuardian 500 selections, make sure you look at the NASCAR at Phoenix projected leaderboard from the SportsLine Projection Model.
Produced by DFS pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors like track history and current results into consideration.
It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, such as correctly casting wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. at Sonoma. Plus it is off to a powerful start in NASCAR this season, calling Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin that a top-four competition and nailing eight of the top 10 drivers at last week’s Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano in its own projected top . Is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Events in venues like ISM Raceway are in his blood. His version has now simulated Sunday’s 2019 NASCAR at Phoenix race 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For your 2019 TicketGuardian 500, we can tell you that the version is high on Clint Bowyer, who makes a strong run at the checkered flag despite going off as a long shot at 25-1 NASCAR odds. He’s a goal for anyone searching for a payday.
Bowyer struck a five-season drought without a win last year and proceeded to catch a pair of victories at Martinsville and Michigan on the way to some 12th-place end in the NASCAR Playoffs. This season, he’s added a top-five complete at Atlanta and has shown remarkable speed at times. Bowyer has seven career top-10s in Phoenix and won a truck series race at this track in 2010.
Bowyer, who drives for Stewart-Haas Racing, was second in among the year’s Daytona Duels and shut out last year’s NASCAR schedule with an eight-place finish at Homestead. He will also come equipped into the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 with a similar car set up to teammates Harvick and Aric Almirola.
Among the shocking 2019 NASCAR in Phoenix chooses from the version: Kevin Harvick, a nine-time winner at ISM Raceway and the very best Vegas favourite, makes a solid run but falls short of winning everything.
Harvick has made a career out of getting to the front of the pack consistently at this track. In Reality, He’s finished in the top 10 in 11 consecutive starts at ISM Raceway
