The second race of the new NASCAR season takes place this afternoon at 2:30 pm in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Avondale for the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Speedway.

Mark Martin will be at the pole, followed by Tony Stewart and Regan Smith.

Martin, who won the April race in 2009 at age 50, became the oldest driver to win a Cup event since 1993 when Morgan Shepherd, then 51, won at Phoenix.

The speedway is a mile in length and the 500-mile race is 375 laps.

The oval was reconfigured before the 2011 November race. More rubber and a second groove were worked into the track, for more side-by-side racing.

Reviewing the first race at Phoenix International Speedway, Jeff Gordon was the winner, in his second race with crew chief Alan Gustafson, ended a 66-race drought as Chevrolets finished in five of the top seven places.

Seating capacity at the desert racetrack is 56,000.

Two wins in a row for National League; Fielder, pitching stars

The National League, the past two All-Star Games, have show the same formula it displayed in the 1970′s and 80′s, pitching, speed, defense and power-hitting.

Prince Fielder supplied the power with a three-run homer, Roy Halladay and the relief corp shut the AL on a six-hitter to lead the National League to a 5-1 win at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.

This is the first two-game winning streak by the National League since the mid-1990′s. The National League’s best run since taking three in a row from 1994-96. They had lost 12 straight games before winning 3-1 at Anaheim in 2010.

The senior circuit claimed home-field advantage in the World Series.

Adrian Gonzalez supplied the only A.L. run with a homer off of Cliff Lee to give the American League a 1-0 lead that didn’t last long.

The home runs by Fielder and Gonzalez were the first in the All-Star Game since 2008 when J.D. Drew belted one at Yankee Stadium.

Tyler Clippard earned the win despite giving up a single to the only batter he faced, Adrian Beltre, which got Jose Bautista thrown out at the plate. He was followed by Clayton Kershaw, Jair Jurrgens, Craig Kimbrall, Jonny Venters, Heath Bell, Joel Hanrahan and Brian Wilson who turned out the lights on the junior circuit.

Texas’ lefty C.J. Wilson, who gave up the home run to Fielder, which bounced off the yellow line in left-center field and out of the park, was the loser.

Fielder, who always seems to have a frown on his face, was all smiles during the game. He won the MVP award after becoming the first Brewers player to hit a home run in an All-Star Game.

With players on both sides dropping out due to various injuries, the total was 16.
