Tracking Key Camping World Truck Series Drivers
When it comes to Truck Series picks, most people center their picks on a certain key group of drivers who are known as the best of the series. Here are some of those drivers and their past stats for Nashville:
Ron Hornaday – Hornaday has five starts at Nashville and in that time, he has won a race, has three top fives, three top 10s and an average finish of 10.6. Bringing that average down, however, is a crash that happened in 2006, which resulted in Hornaday finishing 33rd.
Timothy Peters – Peters has four starts at Nashville and in that time, he has only one top 10 finish (fourth last year) and an average finish of 17.8.
Matt Crafton – Crafton has nine starts at Nashville and in that time, he has one top five, four top 10s and an average finish of 12.1.
Johnny Sauter – Sauter only has one start in the Truck Series at Nashville, which came last year with a sixth place finish. However, Sauter has 11 Nationwide starts at Nashville that saw two top fives, three top 10s and an average finish of 16.2
Todd Bodine – Bodine has five starts at Nashville and has yet to win a race there. However, he has completed all of the laps there with three top five, four top 10s and an average finish of 6.4.
Mike Skinner – Skinner has six starts at Nashville and in those six starts, he has two top fives, 3 top 10s and an average finish of 10.8.
Keep in Mind: NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch will be making their first ever Nashville Truck starts this weekend.
Harvick has won the last four truck races he’s entered and in his three Nationwide starts at Nashville, he has finished first, seventh and third.
In every race that Busch enters, he’s bound to be near the front of your picks as in 71 Camping World Truck Series starts, he has 16 wins, 36 top fives and 52 top 10s. In eight Nationwide starts, however, he has a win, two top fives, three top 10s and an average finish of 15.4
