Trucks – Kentucky- Buckle Up In Your Truck 225

In Nascar by Chris BeschLeave a Comment

The Truck series is finall back. This week we head to Kentucky for the Buck up In your Truck 225. It is a 150 lap race around the 1.5 mile track. We have seen in the Xfinity Races, it is hard to pass the leader here. But i do think this will be more of a 2 dominator race. So lets dive in: 


Brett Moffitt – Moffitt is the pole sitter, and should lead early in the race. The debate today in cash games is Moffitt or Austin Hill. Moffitt has 2 teammates starting up front with him, so im fairly confident that he gets out ahead early.

Austin Hill – Hill has been the fastest truck regular on the year. He doesnt have a win, but he hasnt finished outside the top 10 all year long. This track fits him great, and i think he will be up there in the end contending for the win.

Johnny Sauter – Sauter is the highest priced driver on the slate and is starting 11th. He has been up and down this year but does have a good record at 1.5 mile tracks. He is boarder line cash for me, but with Moffitt and Hill cheaper, im looking there more for cash. Great GPP play

Todd Gilliland – Starting 9th and has shown speed all season long. He is a good pivot off Hill or Moffitt lineups in GPPs.

Chandler Smith – This is an up and coming driver in Nascar. He has not raced this year but last year he finished 8th, 4th , 2nd and 3rd in 4 races. Oh and he is driving the #51 Truck for Kyle Busch, the fastest truck in the truck series. I really like him and i wish we were getting lower ownership on him. Great play in cash and GPPs.

Christian Eckes- Eckes has been very good so far in the trucks this year. He is starting 4th and i think he can lead some laps in this one. He is a riskier play but one that i do like in GPPs.

Best of the Rest:
Stewart Frisen
Zane Smith
Ben Rhodes
Sheldon Creed

Place Differential

Parker Kligerman – This one is easy, Parker is starting 37th and should be around top 10 when all is said and done. Play him in cash and move on. Might be worth a fade in a GPP or 2.

Brennan Poole- Here we are again with Poole. He always seems to screw up his chalk, but he is always starting in a good spot. He rolls off 32nd and as long as he can avoid any trouble, then he will hit value.

Ty Majeski – Not the best starting spots for him, but he has been good all year long. I like him to get top 12 here and be in line for a good day. Boarder line cash (as in if you land on him here, im okay with it, but not someone i am forcing in cash).

Tanner Gray – Gray has been good all year, he has 3 top 12 finishes in his last 3 races. Starting 21st gives him a nice floor for tonight. Great cheap cash play.

Trey Hutchens III – Trey is starting dead last, so he cannot get you negative points. This is his 1st start of the truck season, but he is in a good truck over all. He definitely isnt safe as he is a bit of an unknown in the truck series, but i do like his upside.

Chase Purdy – Purdy is starting 19th and driving a GMS Racing truck. I like him at his salary and he should finish around 15th.

Best of the Rest:

Austin Self
Corey Roper
Derek Kraus
Tyler Hill
