Kevin Harvick is off to a slower start than a year ago, but it doesn’t in any manner harm how dangerous he’ll be at ISM Raceway in Phoenix on Sunday for the TicketGuardian 500.

Harvick has nine career wins at the one-mile track and ends in the top 10 in 65.6 percent of the races there. He is definitely the favorite to win.

However, as good as he’s, Kyle Busch cannot be underestimated with just two career wins in Phoenix and seven 7s in his last seven races. He’s finished in the top 4 in six of the past seven efforts there.

This race will be a duel between the two and whoever gets out in front at the onset of the third phase will likely be the absolute favorite to win. This time we’re going to choose Busch to come out the victor, as he may have picked up the win had it not been for a speeding penalty on pit road.

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