NASCAR weekend schedule for Phoenix Raceway

Kim Coon, Nate Ryan and Kyle Petty preview the final stop on NASCAR's West Coast Tour at Phoenix Raceway, including which drivers are facing pressure to perform following two poor starts to the season.

Although Kevin Harvick has been the top dog at Phoenix Raceway for much of his career, Joey Logano has made a lot of noise at the Arizona track recently.

Logano won last November’s Phoenix race to claim the Cup championship. He also owns wins at the track in 2016 and 2020 and is the only repeat Phoenix winner in the past eight races.

Logano is 0-for-3 to open the Cup season but will be among the favorites in Sunday’s race.

Speaking of Harvick, to appreciate the level of success he has enjoyed at Phoenix, some statistics are in order.

A nine-time winner at Phoenix, Harvick has finished in the top 10 at the track in 19 consecutive races. His second longest top-10 streak -- 13 races -- is at Darlington Raceway. He holds the Cup Series all-time record for most consecutive top-10 finishes at a single track. Dale Earnhardt and Richard Petty are second on that list at 18, and both Earnhardt and Petty posted those streaks at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

Who’s second to Harvick in top-10 streaks at Phoenix? That would be Ryan Blaney, who’s 14 behind Harvick at five straight.
