The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will get back to action this weekend as the drivers take to the high banked Monster Mile in Delaware. After having over a month off, you can tell the drivers will be anxious to get back to racing in Friday’s Jegs 200 (5 p.m. ET/FS1/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
Here are five drivers to watch.
Its been a tough start to the season for the seasoned veteran. Crafton, has three finishes of 15th or worse in four starts during the 2018 season. But, that could change on Friday. The ThorSport driver has nine top 11 finishes in his last 13 starts at Dover and has led in five straight races. He won this race in 2016 and should have his No. 88 Ford up front this weekend.
Since 2013, Sauter hasn’t finished worse than ninth at Dover. He won this very race last season. Also, in his first three starts of 2018, Sauter came away with three top three finishes, including a season opening win at Daytona. He was second and third respectively in his No. 21 Chevrolet in the two practices this weekend. Need I say more?
He’s been having a time of his life lately. Gragson, will make his third career XFINITY Series start on Saturday, as his first two races of his career there he finished in the top five in each. First things first though, his full time ride in the Truck Series. The Kyle Busch Motorsports driver finished ninth in his lone Dover start last year and has two top five finishes in his last three Truck starts on the season.
In the two practices on Thursday, Gragson was sixth and second respectively.
Watch out for his No. 18 Toyota this weekend too.
He’s inching closer and closer to a victory in the Truck Series. He hasn’t finished worse than ninth all season long and was third in this race last June. His No. 98 Ford will be strong too, maybe even see three ThorSport drivers come away with top five finishes this weekend.
He’s made four Cup starts at Dover, so while he’s a rookie in Truck Series competition at the Monster Mile, he’s not a rookie to the track itself. Plus, Moffitt is doing very well to start 2018 off with, as he has three straight top three finishes on the season heading into this weekend’s race. He was quickest in final practice on Thursday and eighth in session No. 1.
