How to Watch the NASCAR Cup Series Race in Phoenix

The one-mile dogleg oval in Avondale, Arizona (a suburb of Phoenix) is the home of one of the most important races of the season for Cup Series drivers. Like many tracks throughout the season, the Phoenix Raceway comes with unique challenges for competitors.

The track’s sweeping turns and flat banking have proven difficult to master, but doing so is a must for anyone hoping to capture a top placement. Any driver able to conquer the Phoenix Raceway has a good shot at landing a coveted spot in the Championship 4 at the end of the season.

Now, the race might be tough for the drivers, but watching the Ruoff Mortgage 500 is easy! You have two options. The broadcast begins at 3:30 PM ET on the Fox Network.

The Pick to Win the Ruoff Mortgage 500

The driver favored to win in Phoenix this weekend is none other than Kevin Harvick, who ended the 2021 Season with an impressive statistical record despite having a zero in the win column. He snagged an impressive fifth place ranking in the final Cup Series standings. Also, keep in mind that it was Harvick’s first winless season in 12 years.

This weekend’s Ruoff Mortgage 500 presents the perfect opportunity for Harvick to shatter his losing streak, as the driver shines brightest in the Phoenix Raceway. Out of 58 career wins, Kevin Harvick has crossed the checkered line first nine times in Phoenix. That’s about 16% of his total wins for you statistics junkies out there. That said, only time will tell if Kevin Harvick is able to capture the title of Cactus King.
