Before taking to the track in last year’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Nashville Superspeedway, Ryan Preece had never raced in the series.
That didn’t prevent him from winning in his debut at the 1.33-mile track, where he beat Todd Gilliland to the finish line by .950 seconds.
Preece will be driving the same truck he raced last year, the No. 17 Ford fielded by David Gilliland Racing, the team co-owned by Todd Gilliland’s father.
The No. 17 is on a roll, having just visited Victory Lane at Knoxville Raceway, with Todd Gilliland behind the wheel.
We think Preece will accomplish two doubles on Friday—his second straight Truck Series win at Nashville and the second straight victory for the No. 17 Ford. At +700 via DraftKings Sportsbook, he’s an excellent value bet.
In five Truck races as a utility player in the Ford camp this year, Preece has finished third, fourth, seventh twice and 11th—and has finished on the lead lap in every race.
When Ryan Preece won last year’s return to Nashville Superspeedway after a 10-year hiatus, Zane Smith was close behind in second place.
Smith was driving the No. 21 Chevrolet for GMS Racing at the time, and he went on to finish second in the final NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings.
After a switch to the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford between seasons, Smith’s success has continued unabated. He leads the Truck Series in races won with three and is second in the regular-season standings with three races left before the cutoff for the Playoff.
An uncommonly versatile driver, Smith has scored top-10 finishes in 11 of 13 races—seven of them top fives. If you’re inclined to bet favorites, we like Smith at +500 (DraftKings) over John Hunter Nemechek at +400.
Don’t be fooled by Ben Rhodes’ 10th-place finish Last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. The driver of the No. 99 ThorSport Racing Toyota started third and ran competitively until an overheating issue ruined his winning chances.
And ignore the fact that Rhodes hasn’t had a top-five finish since he won on the Bristol Dirt Track in the sixth race of the season.
Rhodes is laser-focused on winning the regular-season championship and the 15 Playoff points that go with the title. He dropped from first to third in the standings after Knoxville and trails series leader John Hunter Nemechek by 10 points.
Because of his recent issues, Rhodes is listed at +1000 via DraftKings Sportsbook, but we expect a strong showing at Nashville. We also like him to beat Chandler Smith at +100 in head-to-head action.
