The green flag drops for the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway in suburban Phoenix on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET. After an electric start to the season at Daytona and two fast 1.5-mile paths in Atlanta and Las Vegas, Phoenix is the Monster Energy NASCAR cup series’ first race in 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 favorite to accumulate another win in the most current 2019 TicketGuardian 500 chances. Fellow veteran and Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin is getting 16-1, while Kurt Busch is at 30-1 NASCAR at Phoenix odds after a strong start to his period that has him eighth in the NASCAR standings. Prior to making your own 2019 TicketGuardian 500 picks, be sure to look at the NASCAR in Phoenix projected leaderboard in the SportsLine Projection Model.
Developed by DFS expert and SportsLine predictive information engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 occasions, taking factors such as track record and current results into account.
It made some enormous calls in NASCAR this past year, including correctly casting wins for Kyle Busch at Chicago and Martin Truex Jr. in Sonoma. Plus it is off to a strong start in NASCAR this year, calling Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin a top-four contender and nailing eight of the top 10 drivers at a week’s Pennzoil 400, which included putting winner Joey Logano in its projected top five. Anybody who has followed its picks is far up.
McClure, with a mechanical engineering degree, grew up around race tracks. Big events at iconic places like ISM Raceway have been in his bloodstream. His model has now simulated Sunday’s 2019 NASCAR at Phoenix race 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
For the 2019 TicketGuardian 500, we could inform you the version is high on Clint Bowyer, who makes a strong run in the checkered flag despite heading off as a long shot 25-1 NASCAR chances. He is a goal for anybody looking for a huge payday.
Bowyer broke a five-season drought without a win last year and proceeded to grab a pair of victories at Martinsville and Michigan on the way to a 12th-place end in the NASCAR Playoffs. This season, he has added a top-five finish at Atlanta and has shown impressive speed at times. 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 among the year’s Daytona Duels and shut out a year’s NASCAR schedule using an eight-place ending at Homestead. He will also come equipped to the 2019 TicketGuardian 500 using a similar car set up to teammates Harvick and Aric Almirola.
One of the shocking 2019 NASCAR in Phoenix chooses from the version: Kevin Harvick, a nine-time winner in ISM Raceway along with the very best Vegas favourite, makes a solid run but falls short of winning everything.
Harvick has made a career from getting to the front of the pack consistently at this particular track. In Reality, He’s finished in the top 10 in 11 consecutive starts at ISM Raceway
