Odds to win the Bashas Supermarkets 200 at Phoenix International Raceway

Kyle Busch will be looking for another dominant Nationwide performance at Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday afternoon as the circuit takes the track at the Bashas' Supermarkets 200. With 7/1 odds, he's among the top-three in NASCAR betting futures to win the event this weekend.
Busch has won this event three times in the past four seasons, and in 2011 he started from the pole and led every lap en route to the checkered flag and first-place prize money.
Carl Edwards finished second to Busch at the Bashas' Supermarkets 200 last season, with Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman and Reed Sorenson rounding out the day's Top 5. Joey Logano, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Justin Allgaier, Brian Scott and Kenny Wallace made up the rest of the Top 10 at last year's Nationwide event at Phoenix International Raceway.
Danica Patrick ended up in 17th place at the Bashas' Supermarkets 200 in 2011, and she'll be looking to make up for a disappointing result at last weekend's Drive4COPD 300 at Daytona when she takes the track on Saturday.
Patrick took the pole for last Saturday's Nationwide race at Daytona, but teammate Cole Whitt knocked her into the wall on Lap 49 and she was forced to exit the race. Patrick ended up in 38th place at that event.
And Patrick wasn't the only driver to run into some tough luck at the Drive4COPD 300, with a series of wrecks conspiring to give James Buescher his first-ever Nationwide victory.
Brad Keselowski took second place in the Drive4COPD 300 at Daytona last Saturday, and he was followed across the finish line by Elliott Sadler, and rookies Whitt and Austin Dillon. Tony Stewart was eighth, Kasey Kahne was ninth, Kurt Busch 10th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 15th and an accident pushed Busch back to 18th place.
