John Hunter Nemechek Leads Toyota Charge in Perfect Season—So Far
Kyle Busch Motorsports has won the last five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races, with owner/driver Kyle Busch and John Hunter Nemechek accounting for two victories each.
Ben Rhodes picked up wins in the first two events of the season. Added to the KBM victory total, Toyota drivers have won all seven races thus far in 2021.
With Busch sitting out the Darlington race, Nemechek is the clear favorite at +225, according to the sportsbook at BetMGM
But you can’t ignore Rhodes, who is the fifth choice at BetMGM at +850, despite his win at Darlington last year. This is a value bet you can’t ignore.
Where You Start at Darlington Has a Lot to Do with Where You Finish
It’s a small sample, and most of the data is at least a decade old, but historically, starting position in Truck Series races at Darlington is an excellent predictor of the finish.
Only once in eight Truck races at The Lady in Black has the eventual winner started outside the top 10—and that was a victory from 14th by Bobby Hamilton back in 2003.
Since then, Darlington winners have started fourth, eighth, second, and fifth—the spot from which Ben Rhodes won last year.
John Hunter Nemechek starts from the pole on Friday night, and that argues for a bet on the driver of the No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.
But Rhodes starts fourth, well within the potential winning zone, and a bet on the ThorSport driver makes a lot more sense, given the disparity in price.
Hailie Deegan Has Shown Steady Improvement Throughout Truck Season
Hailie Deegan is not just a novelty, a rare female driver in the male-dominated world of auto racing.
No, Deegan is a bona fide talent who posted three victories in 28 starts in the developmental NASCAR K&N Pro Series West.
After starting her rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with finishes of 24th, 28th, and 28th, the 19-year-old from Temecula, California, has improved her results each week.
If you’d like to make a wager on Deegan, however, you’ll have to place a field bet, ranging from +5000 at most outlets to +6000 on bet365.
Unquestionably, you’re better off waiting for Deegan to be offered individually at much longer odds.
