Subway Fresh Fit 500 Free Picks
AVONDALDE, AZ (ATS Consultants) - Fresh off theDaytona 500, the Sprint Cup series moves to the Phoenix International Speedway for the Subway Fresh Fit 500.
Jimmie Johnson, who won the Daytona 500, won three straight fall races at this track from 2007-09 and won the spring event in 2006. Denny Hamlin won the Sprint Cup race at Phoenix last year and Kevin Harvick took the flag here in November.
Harvick won this race last year in November and was having a strong week at Dayton before getting caught up in an early accident. He ended up finishing in 42nd. Last year, he wound up finishing second at the Subway Fresh Fit 500 to Denny Hamlin. He has done well at this race track in the past and should put himself in position to win this one.
Biffle owns a 7.7 average finish on their new configuration with two top 10s. He has yet to win here but should have confidence after a strong season last year. Biffle has 18 Sprint Cup Series starts at Phoenix, earning five top-five and seven top-10 finishes while also leading for a total of 349 laps. He has an average finishing position of 13.7 from an average starting position of 14.2.
Martin has 12 top-five finishes at the track and 21 top-10 finishes. In three years, he owns a 11.7 average finish, and has two top 10s. He loves the track and it wouldn't be surprise to see him upset the young guys (and gal). According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Mark Martin is +2000.
