|John Hunter Nemechek
Take a look at our guide how to bet on NASCAR, here!
On Lap 55, he passed team owner Kyle Busch to grab the victory at the 2.5-mile tricky triangle. Nemechek also picked up a Playoff point by winning the race’s second stage.
Though Nemechek has but one win to his credit this season, he’s also fighting for his second straight regular-season championship, and his slim hopes to achieve that goal depend on winning the race, provided series leader Zane Smith experiences an absolute disaster.
Though we think the regular-season championship is realistically out of reach for Nemechek, we like him to regain his form at Pocono and go back-to-back there. The +450 price via DraftKings Sportsbook isn’t unreasonable.
After all, he’s the only former winner of a Truck race at Pocono in the field for Saturday’s event.
Though John Hunter Nemechek is the only driver in the field who has won a Truck Series event at Pocono Raceway, there are four others who have experienced victory in an ARCA Menards Series races at the Tricky Triangle.
Zane Smith, Ty Majeski, Christian Eckes and Corey Heim all are former winners of ARCA features at the 2.5-mile facility.
Of those, Majeski is listed at the most favorable price (+1500 to win). Majeski has shown strength throughout the year, and we think a top-three finish in Saturday’s CRC Brakleen 150 is a reasonable proposition at +400.
Twenty-year-old Corey Heim has been the pleasant surprise of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.
Driving the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in eight of the 16 races so far this season, Heim already has two victories to his credit. In addition, he has started from the top six (including two poles) in seven of his eight races.
As noted above, Heim also has an ARCA victory at the Tricky Triangle, but oddsmakers have caught on to his talent and have listed him at +600 to win.
