On Sunday, the 1st official NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Subway Fresh Fit 500, will run at the Phoenix International Raceway at 3PM ET. This 1 mile pavel oval was carved in the foothills of the Estrella Mountains. The place is suitable for race drivers and fans who want to watch the race and witness the beauty of its natural surroundings.
Youngest Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne decided not to switch from Nationwide Series to the Sprint Cup Series. The rookie decided to go with their early season plan to race full season at the Nationwide series and run 18 races in the Sprint Cup Series.
In Daytona, he showed that he is mature enough to race against the big boys.
The top 10 riders after the Daytona 500 are: Carl Edwards, David Gilliland, Bobby Labonte, Kurt Bush, Juan Montoya, Regan Smith, Kyle Busch, Paul Menard, Mark Martin and AJ Allmendinger.
Defending champions Jimmie Johson as well as Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick started slowly this season. But as the season progresses expect these drivers to run their way back in the competition.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed both Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin as the favorite to win the Subway Fresh Fit 500 this Sunday. Realistically, only one would emerge as the winner.
