PSN NASCAR Handicapping Report: Phoenix Picks

CJ Radune will attempt to make it 4 for 4 to start the season in this week’s Camping World 500 from Phoenix Raceway. Both analysts will use two identical drivers from their list including 6-1 shot Joey Logano who won here in November and will start on the pole.

TRACK TRENDS

– Four of the last five race winners have started inside the top-4.

– Toyota drivers have not won in the last nine races.

– Only two drivers have won starting outside the top-20 since the first race in 1988.

– The farthest back a race winner has started to win at Phoenix Raceway is 29th (R Rudd/1995).

Here are the drivers that make up this week’s race day picks report. Complete driver analysis and odds are available every week on The Sports Section.

Points Formula (Monster Energy Cup Series)

Each analyst receives a weekly allowance of 200 points to spend on races (100 x 36) and futures (100 x 32).

100 futures points will be invested before practice begins each week, while 100 race points will be invested on race day.

The weekly totals take into account both the 100 futures investment and the 100 in race picks.

After race 32 in Kansas, each analyst will no longer be obligated to invest the 100 in futures points if he chooses, although he must continue to invest the 100 in race points through Homestead.
