Favorites to Win the 2020 Vet Tix Camping World 200
If Kyle Busch is in the Truck Series field, that automatically makes him the favorite to win.
While there will be some additional motivation to beat the reigning Cup Series champion following Kevin Harvick’s challenge, it’s still a tough task.
Busch won seven of his last eight starts in the series and is currently on a six-race winning streak.
He is also the defending Atlanta winner.
Busch has nine Truck Series starts at the track, scoring five wins and one-second place.
Sauter’s season is off to a much better start following his disappointing 2019.
The 2016 champion scored a seventh place at the Daytona opener and followed it up with a pole position and a second-place finish at Las Vegas behind Kyle Busch.
The ThorSport driver has three consecutive top 3 finishes at Atlanta and was the runner-up last year – again trailing Busch.
Sauter is currently second in the standings following a penalty that cost him the points lead.
Carrying plenty of momentum into this weekend, the veteran could score his first win since last May.
Moffitt has a good chance to recover from his less than ideal start to 2020.
The 2018 champion has a best finish of 13th in two races this season.
Atlanta comes at the perfect time for the GSM Racing driver.
Moffitt won this race in his championship-winning season and finished a solid fourth last year.
While Kyle Busch’s presence makes it difficult for any of the regulars to win, Moffitt is one of the few with a genuine shot at accomplishing the feat.

Atlanta 250 FAQ
How long is Atlanta Motor Speedway?
Length: 1.54 mile
Banking: 24° corners, 5° straights
Atlanta is one of the oldest tracks in NASCAR.
The speedway opened in July 1960, and it has been part of the Cup Series schedule every year since then.
The 1.5-mile oval had been last repaved back in 1987.
The old and worn out surface posed an additional challenge and earned plenty of praise from the drivers.
Despite its popularity, however, the number of bumps and cracks led to a resurfacing project.
This year’s race will be run on the new surface, as the track finally underwent the repaving originally planned for 2017.
Is Vet Tix Camping World 200 still on?
