Fans looking at NASCAR odds know that last year’s race was dominated by Kevin Harvick. He was able to keep Jimmie Johnson at bay and win the race for fans betting NASCAR. The end of the race was filled with cautions, (four in the last 30 laps) and a red flag made the finish for fans looking at NASCAR odds quite exciting.
Fans of NASCAR odds remember that Denny Hamlin passed four-time champion Jeff Gordon on the final lap for third place last year. Carl Edwards was fifth while Mark Martin finished sixth, Kasey Kahne seventh, Kurt Busch 8th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. ninth and Jeff Burton 10th. Harvick started the race from the number two position alongside pole winner Jeff Gordon but got out front quickly and led more than half of the first 200 laps. Fans of NASCAR odds remember that late in the race Harvick was battling alternator problems and needed a push from a safety truck to restart his car after the red flag with four laps to go. He held off Johnson in the three lap finish to give him a season sweep of both events for fans of NASCAR odds at Phoenix last year.
