Hooked on Phoenix

Winning in the Valley of the Sun

Roush Fenway has won at Phoenix in all three of NASCAR’s major divisions, with the organization’s first win coming in the fall of 1993 with driver Mark Martin. Roush Fenway won the second-ever NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) race at PIR in 2000, and Greg Biffle claimed their 100th overall XFINITY Series win at Phoenix in 2009. Carl Edwards also won there that fall to give Roush Fenway the season sweep. All in all, six drivers have won NASCAR races for Roush Fenway at Phoenix (Martin, Biffle, Edwards, Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth and Joe Ruttman). In addition, Edwards swept Phoenix in the fall of 2010, winning both the NXS and NSCS events. 

 

Tale of the Tape

Roush Fenway has started 145 NSCS races at Phoenix, recording a total of seven victories, 34 top five finishes, 57 top-10 finishes, four poles and has led 2,290 laps. Edwards earned Roush Fenway’s most recent victory at Phoenix in the March 2013 event.

 

Short Track Prowess

In 628 NSCS starts on short tracks, Roush Fenway has earned 22 victories, 119 top-fives, 231 top-10s, 25 pole positions and has led 7,582 laps. Roush Fenway’s most recent victory on a short track came in the spring of 2014 at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in the spring event with Edwards.

 

XFINITY Success

Phoenix is one of the strongest tracks for Roush Fenway’s XFINITY program. In 83 starts, the organization has won eight times, earned 26 top-fives, 50 top-10s and has led 1,406 laps. Roush Fenway most recently went to victory lane with Edwards in Nov. 2010. 

 

Chasing the Championship

This weekend’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Phoenix marks the final race in the second round of the Chase. Roush Fenway teammates Ryan Reed and Bubba Wallace currently rank sixth and seventh, respectively, in the Chase Grid. At the completion of Saturday’s race, four drivers will be eliminated. Reed currently trails the fourth and final position in the Chase grid by five points, while Wallace sits 20 points back.
