Three weeks into the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, three different drivers, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Kyle Busch and William Byron, have earned checkered flags?

Considering the series is traveling to “Harvick’s House,” will Kevin Harvick, who has nine wins at Phoenix Raceway, make it four race winners in four events and continue his dominance at the one-mile oval? 

Below, we’ll preview the top storylines heading into Sunday’s United Rentals Work United 500, go over the odds, and give our best bets for the most prestigious race on the NASCAR calendar. 

2023 United Rentals Work United 500 Storylines

  • Joey Logano started on the pole at Las Vegas Motor Speedway but ended up placing last after he crashed out on Lap 182. With an average finish of 13.3 in three races this season, the 2022 Cup point champion has yet to earn a playoff point.

United Rentals Work United 500 Predictions and Picks 

Here are our best NASCAR bets for the United Rentals Work United 500 at Phoenix Raceway: 

Martin Truex Jr. (+1000) 

After going winless last season and crapping out on his overtime gamble at Las Vegas last Sunday, Truex has not won a points race since the 2021 fall race at Richmond Raceway. He’s overdue. 

William Byron (+1200) 

After two sub-par finishes in the opening two races this season, Byron broke through at Las Vegas, leading 176 laps. Will he go back-to-back? 


Bubba Wallace (+3500) 

Go for a long shot. Wallace ran in the top 10 for much of last Sunday’s race at Las Vegas, finishing first among Toyota drivers. In his sixth Cup season, Wallace seeks consistency.
