NASCAR has seen three different winners in the first three races with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. snapping a 199-race winless streak to win Daytona 500. The following week at Fontana, Kyle Busch won in just his second start as a Richard Childress Racing driver. And then it was William Byron winning at Las Vegas, leading a Hendrick Motorsports 1-2-3.
Ross Chastain tops the championship standings entering Phoenix.
Fords swept both races at Phoenix last year with Chase Briscoe earning his first career Cup win in the March race and Joey Logano taking the checkered flag and the championship in the November finale.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series and ARCA Menards Series will also be racing this weekend at Phoenix.
