Denny Hamlin will aim to win the Subway Fresh Fit 500 for the second year in a row.

With the pageantry of the Daytona 500 out of the way, it's back to a normal race schedule for NASCAR.

NASCAR returns to Phoenix this weekend for the Subway Fresh Fit 500. Last season, Mark Martin won the pole at this race but Denny Hamlin went home with the checkered flag. Hamlin is coming off of a 35th-place finish in the Daytona 500.
