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

Harvick has two career wins at the one-mile track and ends in the top 10 in 65.6 percent of the races there. He’s definitely the favorite.

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

This race will probably be a duel between the two and whoever gets out ahead at the start of the phase will likely be the favorite to win. This time we are going to select Busch to come out the victor, as he might have picked up the win last week 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.
