Kevin Harvick is off to a slower start than last year, but that doesn’t in any way damage how dangerous he will probably be at ISM Raceway at Phoenix on Sunday for the TicketGuardian 500.

Harvick has nine career wins in the one-mile monitor and finishes in the top 10 at 65.6 percent of the races there. He is undoubtedly the favorite.

As good as he is, Kyle Busch cannot be underestimated with seven 7s in his last seven races and two career wins in Phoenix. He’s finished in six of his last seven efforts there.

This race will be a duel between the two and whoever gets out ahead at the start of the third stage will likely be the favorite to win. This time we are going to choose Busch to come out the victor, as he might have picked up the win last week had it not been for a speeding penalty on pit road.

The TicketGuardian 500 could be viewed Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.

Which drivers should you watch in the TicketGuardian 500?
Aric Almirola has been quietly good this year with two top 10s in his last two races and just a stick to his name. He will likely have a fantastic week as he has finishes of fourth, seventh and ninth at Phoenix in his last few runs at the track.
