NASCAR picks are our specialty here at Cappers Info, and we’re set to bring you the best on the track this week for the Subway Fresh Fit 500!
NASCAR Preview: Subway Fresh Fit 500
Date: Sunday, March 4th, 3:00 (ET)
Location: Phoenix International Speedway, Phoenix, AZ
Television Coverage: FOX
Mark Martin (18 to 1 Odds To Win Subway Fresh Fit 500 at 5Dimes): It seems as though every single year, Martin finds a way to win one token race, and this very well could be the race in which he gets the job done. He has qualified well, taking the pole. He has won here twice before in his 30 races, and he has an average finishing position of 9.0. There are only two other tracks in which he has finished in the Top 10 on average in his career, and only here and Watkins Glen are the two tracks in which he has finished in Top 10 in more than 60 percent of his races.
Jimmie Johnson (6 to 1 Odds To Win Subway Fresh Fit 500 at 5Dimes): Just think about this for a second. Johnson is coming off of a performance in which he finished dead last at the Daytona 500, and he is going to be coming into this race without his crew chief, who has been suspended. Yet, with all of that being said, JJ is still the favorite when push comes to shove. It is definitely an interesting proposition, but when you dig deeper, you can see why this is the case. Johnson has four wins on this track, the most of any driver on the Sprint Cup circuit, and he also has 11 Top 5 finishes to boot. We just can’t ignore the No. 48 in this one.
Kevin Harvick (8 to 1 Odds To Win Subway Fresh Fit 500 at 5Dimes): Harvick has watched his NASCAR odds quite a bit over the course of the week, and he is now one of the favorites to get the job done. He didn’t have the best week at Daytona, but he did avoid all of the problems that others had on the track. Harvick still has a lot of work to get done to be a real contender for the Sprint Cup this year, but here at Phoenix, he has a good history. The No. 29 has a pair of wins on this course in his 18 starts, and he also has eight Top 10 finishes.
Juan Pablo Montoya (20 to 1 Odds To Win Subway Fresh Fit 500 at 5Dimes): The former IRL star was on fire at Daytona last week… literally… He was the man that caused the red flag to come out for almost two hours in the Sunshine State. Montoya does have a Top 5 finish here in Phoenix in the past, and though he only has finished an average of 17th in his 10 races in this circuit, he could be one of the up and coming drivers to take a checkered flag. Don’t be shocked if Montoya does a heck of a lot better this time around.
