Five Predictions for Phoenix

Carl+Edwards+Subway+Fresh+Fit+500+md4esiLXOEOlIn sharp contrast to the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR heads to the one-mile Phoenix International Raceway this weekend.

Ever since the track was reconfigured in 2011, action has been at a premium. The new configuration can produce some unexpected and wild moments, which aid this week’s five predictions.

The Nationwide Series opener at Daytona put series regular Regan Smith in victory lane for the first time since last June at Michigan, when he was the last regular to be victorious. Smith held off Brad Keselowski last Saturday, a major feat for a NNS driver. The Sprint Cup drivers’ dominance in the lower tier series is no secret.

This is why you can’t expect any Cup drivers to be beat again this weekend as a Cup regular will win the Blue Jeans Go Green 200. There are numerous NSCS stars in the field including Keselowski, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Larson, Kyle Busch, and Kevin Harvick. Look for one of them to score their first NNS win of the season on Saturday.
