Doordash 250 Kyle Busch

First, let us blow our own horn. Though we whiffed on the Truck Series last week, we correctly picked the winners of races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (AJ Allmendinger) and NASCAR Cup Series (Joey Logano), as well as three other winning bets in the Cup Series race. So stay on the bandwagon—we’re on a roll.

Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event—the DoorDash 250—marks the return of the series to Sonoma Raceway for the first time since 1998, when road course ringer Boris Said took the checkered flag.

The race itself will be contested over 75 laps at the 1.99-mile road course, with stage breaks scheduled after 20 and 45 laps.

Take a look at our guide – how to bet on NASCAR!

Kyle Busch Is the Only Driver in the Field Who Has Tasted Victory at Sonoma

This is Kyle Busch’s last chance. The owner/driver at Kyle Busch Motorsports is making his final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start of the season under limits imposed by the sanctioning body.

In jeopardy on Saturday is Busch’s nine-year streak of winning at least one Truck Series race per season. So far this year, the driver of the No. 51 Toyota is 0-for-4.

But Busch is the only driver in the field for Saturday’s race who has been to Victory Lane at Sonoma—in any NASCAR Series. Against stiffer competition in the Cup Series, he has won twice.

That’s enough to make us believe Busch will preserve his streak by winning Saturday’s race. He’s an adept road course racer in top equipment, and that should be enough for him to get the job done.

At +175 via DraftKings Sportsbook, you won’t get rich, but that doesn’t mean a wager on Busch isn’t a solid bet.

Interlopers from the NASCAR Cup Series Cloud the Picture in Saturday’s Race

Kyle Busch isn’t the only full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver who could have an impact on Saturday’s Truck Series race.

The field also includes Ross Chastain, Alex Bowman, Austin Dillon and Harrison Burton. Of that group, Chastain is the most likely to upset Busch. After all, Chastain was victorious in the Cup race on the road course at Circuit of the Americas (Austin, Texas) earlier this season.

At +600 via DraftKings, we think Chastain is the best hedge against the heavy race favorite, but we advise betting on him before Saturday’s time trials. After that, Chastain’s odds are likely to shorten.

Talented Road Course Racer Parker Kligerman Is a Good Bet at Long Odds

After the favorites are accounted for, the odds for the DoorDash 250 drop off sharply. Parker Kligerman, for example, is tied for eighth choice, but he’s listed at +2000 via DraftKings.

Whether on ovals or road courses, Kligerman tends to overachieve in relation to the qualify of his equipment. Driving the No. 75 Henderson Motorsports Chevrolet, he has posted three finishes of sixth or better in five Truck Series starts this season.

We don’t think Kligerman is likely to win on Saturday afternoon, but we’re willing to take a shot at both a top-three and a top-five finish (at +550 and +200, respectively, via DraftKings). He has the skill to pull that off.
