Phoenix Chassis Selections

LAS VEGAS -- Here's a look at some of the top statistical performers at Phoenix International Raceway using NASCAR's Loop ratings, along with odds for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 posted by the LVH SuperBook and chassis information from team press releases.

In years past, a driver's chassis history has been one of the key components in handicapping Sprint Cup races. However, with the new Gen-6 template, we'll have to wait and see if past chassis success is still a useful handicapping tool.

The most interesting driver to watch this week will be Kevin Harvick at 12-to-1 odds because he's using the same chassis that won at Phoenix last fall.


Greg Biffle (No. 16 3M / NOVEC Ford)
Odds: 20/1
· Five top fives, seven top 10s
· Average finish of 13.7
· Average Running Position of 14.9, 11th-best
· Driver Rating of 92.4, 10th-best
· 276 Fastest Laps Run, fourth-most
· 687 Green Flag Passes, sixth-most
· Average Green-Flag Speed of 124.664 mph, 10th-fastest

Biffle's chassis choice: The No. 16 3M Novec Ford Fusion team will bring Primary Chassis RK-844, which will make its debut this weekend at Phoenix. The backup Chassis RK-807 first hit the track in 2012 at Martinsville, earning a 13th-place finish.
