NASCAR Truck Series Betting: 200 Analysis

NASCAR Truck Series Betting: 200 Analysis

Written by on May 6, 2021

It’s been quite the stretch for the Kyle Busch Motorsports team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. After Busch himself claimed the checkered flag last weekend at Kansas, the Busch Motorsports Team has won the last five events in the Truck Series. They’ll be looking to make it six in a row this weekend, as the NASCAR Series invades Darlington for the 200.

This Friday night, the field of 40 will take to the track for the 147 laps, 200 mile event. The Darlington Raceway is known for its abrasive track surface, so how drivers use their tires will be a key factor in this race. Drivers that do a better job of managing their tires early in the race will have an advantage towards the latter stages of the event. 

Let’s take a look at some of the favorites to hoist the checkered flag at this Friday’s 200 at the Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina so you can bet against their NASCAR odds.

NASCAR World Truck Series Race at Darlington Betting Preview

Joe Hunter Nemechek

The Kyle Busch Motorsports racer is currently leading the NASCAR Truck Series standings. With two wins on the season, along with five top-fives, and six top-10 finishes, Nemecheck is the driver to beat this Friday. This will be his first career start as a truck series driver at Darlington, so he’ll need to get the track figured out rather quickly. He has made three starts as a NASCAR Cup Series driver, with his best finish being a ninth place finish. Nemecheck has proven that he knows how to win, so until someone shows that they can stop him consistently, he’ll more than likely be the favorite to win most races. 

Ben Rhodes

Rhodes and his Toyota are currently sitting in the second spot in the driver point standings, 33 points behind Nemecheck. Rhodes also has two wins on the season, along with three top-five, and six top-10 finishes. He finished in 10th place last weekend at Kansas. Rhodes would love to end KBM’s winning streak this weekend. 

Austin Hill

Austin Hill is currently in the third position in the driver point standings. Hill didn’t start the season out well, but he has since rebounded and has finished inside the top 10 in his last five races. He finished third at Las Vegas, second at Bristol, and is coming off of a third place finish last weekend at Kansas. Hill has yet to win a race this season, so he’s love nothing more than to take his first checkered flag of the season on Friday night at Darlington.

Sheldon Creed

Coming off of a 32nd place finish last weekend at Kansas, Creed would like to right the ship this weekend at Darlington. After winning last year’s points title, Creed is looking to jump back to the top of this year’s point standings. He has yet to win a race this season, and he only has three top-10 finishes thus far on the season. If he doesn’t want to fall further in the point standings, he needs to have a good showing here on Friday night.
