Speedycash Com 220 Truck Series

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series completed the first half of its regular season last weekend at Kansas Speedway. Now it’s on to another 1.5-mile venue for one of the support events on NASCAR All-Star Race weekend.

Friday night’s Speedycash.com 220 will be contested over 147 laps (220.5 miles), with stage breaks scheduled after 35 and 70 laps. John Hunter Nemechek is the defending winner of this race.

SpeedyCash.com 220 Predictions

It’s Hard to Bet Against John Hunter Nemechek at Texas Motor Speedway

There are obvious reasons why oddsmakers have installed John Hunter Nemechek as the favorite to win Friday night’s SpeedyCash.com 220 at Texas.

First and foremost, Nemechek is the defending winner of the race. Last year he beat Chase Elliott to the finish line by 3.361 seconds.

After a slow start to the 2022 season, Nemechek has finished no worse than sixth in his last five races. That stretch includes a victory at Darlington.

Historically, eight of Nemechek’s 12 career victories have come on so-called downforce tracks, and his Kyle Busch Motorsports equipment is arguably the best in the Truck Series garage.

For all those reasons, we like Nemechek to park his No. 4 Toyota in Victory Lane on Friday, even if the odds are stingy (+350 via DraftKings Sportsbook).

It’s High Time for Matt DiBenedetto to Get His Act Together in the Trucks Series

Understandably, Matt DiBenedetto was disappointed when he had to take a ride in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series after seven straight seasons in NASCAR’s premier Cup Series.

For a driver of DiBenedetto’s ability, the 2022 season has been lackluster, to say the least, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

In last week’s race at Kansas Speedway, DiBenedetto made a late-race charge into seventh place. His best two finishes of the season have come at 1.5-mile speedways (sixth at Las Vegas and seventh at Kansas).

We think the driver of the No. 25 Rackley W.A.R. Chevrolet is on the verge of an even better performance. We especially like his odds to finish in the top three (+1500 via DraftKings) and top five (+650).

Is Truck Series Veteran Todd Bodine Worth a Look at Colossal Odds?

Todd Bodine is making his third start of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season—and his third since 2013.

A two-time series champion, Bodine came out of retirement to run six more races—to bring his total number of starts across all three of NASCAR’s national series to 800.

After a mistake-plagued debut with Halmar Friesen Racing at Las Vegas, Bodine managed a respectable 10th-place run at Darlington in his most recent outing.

What’s particularly attractive about Bodine is the price. He’s available at +10000 to win (DraftKings), +2500 to run top-three and +1000 to run top-five.

If you’re up for a real flier, bet on The Onion (so nicknamed for his bald head) across the board. After all, he holds the series record for most wins at Texas with six.

And he just might be able to recapture some of the old magic.
