Favorites to Win the 2019 JEGS 200
Johnny Sauter is the early favorite for the race.
The 2016 champion won the past two races at the Monster Mile.
Sauter has an impressive record at the track.
The ThorSport driver has six consecutive top 10 finishes, with four top 5 results during that span.
His career average finish at the track is a solid 8, which also helps his cause.
It’s worth noticing, however, that Johnny Sauter moved from GMS Racing back to ThorSport this season.
In 2019, Sauter has two top 5 and four top 10 finishes through five races.
Reigning series champion Brett Moffitt won at Dover twice back in his K&N East days.
Moffitt finished 12th at the Monster Mile last season, his only Truck Series start at the track.
However, has replaced Johnny Sauter at GMS Racing, which won the previous two races at Dover.
With a decent previous record at the track and driving the best car, Moffitt should be in contention.
Matt Crafton has only missed one Truck Series race at Dover.
The two-time champion has an impressive eight top 10 finishes in the last 10 races at the track.
Crafton won at the Monster Mile back in 2016.
This season, the ThorSport driver has three top 5 finishes, with one additional top 10 result.
Outsider Picks for the 2019 JEGS 200
Daytona winner Austin Hill hasn’t performed well at Dover in the Truck Series.
Hill has a career-best result of 16th at the Monster Mile in the trucks.
On the other hand, he was a two-time winner at Dover in the K&N East Series.
Hill moved to championship-winning operation Hattori Racing for this season, scoring his first win.
His recent form hasn’t been great, with two retirements and one16th place finish in the last three races.
Ben Rhodes has two consecutive top 10 finishes at Dover.
The ThorSport driver led the most laps in 2017 on the way to a fourth-place finish.
Rhodes sits third in points with two top 5 and three top 10 results through five races.
Grant Enfinger’s consistency could get him in the mix for the win.
Also driving for ThorSport, the former ARCA champion has four top 10 and three top 5 in five races this season.
Enfinger’s worst result in 2019 was the 11th place at Las Vegas.
The driver of the #98 car has two career starts at Dover.
He scored an impressive third place on his debut but finished down in 14th last season.
