If you are a fan of the Truck Series in NASCAR, then you are in for a double treat this weekend, as we have a doubleheader set to go at Kansas Speedway. The Kansas 200 is set for Friday night, while the Kansas Speedway 200 will go on Saturday afternoon. While we are focusing on the second of those two races, the favorites that we discuss here are likely to be very similar in both races, so keep that in mind when you are wagering. The driver standings are about as tight as it gets right now, but with two races this weekend, there are a ton of points up for grabs, so expect to see some changes at the top when all is said and done. For now, let’s take a closer look at some of the favorites for the Kansas Speedway 200 on Saturday so you can set down your bets against their NASCAR odds.
NASCAR Gander RV – Kansas Speedway 200 Odds
Christian Eckes (+350)
Christian Eckes in down in 5th in the Gander RV driver standings, but he is the perfect example of just how tight the standings are at the moment, as he is just 9 points out of first. Eckes does not have any wins in the 8 races this season, but he has finished in the top 10 in half of those events. When you consider that this is his first full season in the Truck Series, you get an idea of just how high the ceiling is for this young man. This will be his first run at Kansas in this series, but it is worth noting that he finished first there last season in the ARCA Menards Series.
Austin Hill (+400)
Austin Hill will be looking to have a bit of a bounce back weekend after posting his worst result of the season last week in Texas. Hill finished way back in 30th in that race, which was the first time that he had finished outside of the top 10 this season. Hill has yet to pick up a win on the season, but he has come close a couple of times, finishing second in a pair of different races. It seems like only a matter of time before he takes his first checkered flag. Hill finished 4th when he raced at Kansas Speedway last season.
Brett Moffitt (+900)
Through the first 7 races of the season, Brett Moffit has been mostly consistent, cracking the top 10 on 4 different occasions. His best finish of the year was 4th at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, but he came close to matching that last weekend with a 5th place finish. He does seem like a bit of a longshot to get the win here, but with 2 top 10 finishes in his last 3 runs at the Kansas Speedway, he could well be in the hunt towards the end.
Ross Chastain (+1000)
Chastain is a driver who has his fingers in a lot of different racing pies, as he competes in the Cup Series and Xfinity Series, as well as the Truck Series. He has certainly been consistent behind the wheel of the trucks this season, landing in the top 10 in 5 of his 7 races to this point. He actually won at Kansas last season in the Truck Series, so he is definitely worth a shot at a very attractive price.
