    Would be nice to see Chase finally seal the deal at this place this week. Gustafson puts together some really good Phoenix cars.

    We on the "pick the winner of every race" Elliott train, @Pat too. Chase needs a robust turnaround from the lackluster results, maybe getting into this short track package will help.

    Maybe they dont want you to see the Quaker State logo, but yeah, that is odd that its blurred out.

    I like Phoenix! I has character/personality. Plus, it reminds me a bit of the now defunct Nazareth....

    There still is one, just less air restricted. They would be around 900 horsepower without it.

    With the added downforce I’m wondering if they’ll be able to easily run two wide with speed

    Harvick won the spring race, but not the fall race. He didn't look as dominant in the fall race and I don't think he's going to run away with it like that this year.

    I actually like how Denny is looking so far, if he can string together consistent top 10s. I think he will be a problem this year. Denny has always been a fantastic driver, its just his mouth gets in the way of his talent.

    That and he can be wildly inconsistent at times. He'll have a string of top 5s or 10s, then fall off for about three races. Wash, rinse, and repeat the same issue all season.

    If Harvick wins the TicketGuardian 500, he will become just the sixth driver with 10 or more NASCAR Cup Series victories at a single track.:booya:
    The Stewart-Haas Racing driver sits at nine wins in 32 starts in Phoenix and has been nearly unstoppable at the track since he joined SHR in 2014, winning five of the last 10 races there. That includes a three-race winning streak through the 2014 season and the spring ’15 race.
    The five other drivers with 10 or more wins at a track are Richard Petty (15 at Martinsville and North Wilkesboro, 13 at Richmond, 11 at Rockingham, and 10 at Daytona), Darrell Waltrip (12 at Bristol, 11 at Martinsville, 10 at North Wilkesboro), Jimmie Johnson (11 at Dover), David Pearson (10 at Darlington), and Dale Earnhardt (10 at Talladega).
