NASCAR at Phoenix live results, updates, highlights from United Rentals Work United 500

Things can get testy when the NASCAR Cup Series comes to Phoenix Raceway.

The bright sunlight, the rising track temperatures, the dirty air — all can make the one-mile track difficult to traverse. Although not known for its wrecks like Daytona or Talladega, “The Desert Oddball” has had its fair share of dustups.

Whether it was Jeff Gordon’s wreck that knocked Clint Bowyer out of the 2012 Chase or Denny Hamlin’s spill that devoured contenders Kurt Busch and Chase Elliott in 2019, Phoenix has had moments of madness.

Perhaps Sunday will provide more chaos when racers take part in the United Rentals Work United 500. It’s a big race for more reasons than one: it also gives drivers a preview of what is to come in the Cup Series championship race in November.

Kevin Harvick has achieved unprecedented success at Phoenix, and although the veteran hasn’t gotten off to the hottest of starts in 2023, he has to be considered among the favorites simply for that history.
