The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, March 13th with the Ruoff Mortgage 500 at the Phoenix Raceway. The race starts at 3:30 p.m. ET and will air on FOX. You can watch a live stream on FOX.com/live. The race is 312 laps and usually lasts just at or under three hours. Kyle Busch won the race in 2019 in 3:04:05, Joey Logano won the race in 2020 with a time of 3:20:50 and Martin Truex Jr. is the reigning champ winning the race in 3:00:20 last year.

Kyle Larson is the favorite heading into Sunday’s race with +400 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. Truex Jr. has the second-best odds at +750 as he looks for wins at this event in back-to-back years. They are followed by Kyle Busch (+750), Chase Elliott (+800) and Denny Hamlin (+800) to round out the drivers with the top-five best odds to come away with the checkered flag. Larson is the only driver among the favorites who has snagged a Cup Series victory this early on in the NASCAR season, having won the Wise Power 400 on to close out February.
