39201 Johnny Sauter +180
Johnny Sauter is a former winner of this race, claiming the victory in 2013. He is on a nice run in the Truck Series right now. Dating back to the end of last season, Sauter has finished third or better in seven straight races. That includes three victories. Now he returns to a track that has been good to him, with four top-5 finishes over the last five years.
39203 Noah Gragson +600
Noah Gragson is still relatively young in the series, but he has done very well at Martinsville. He won the fall race there last year and was fourth in this very race a year ago. While he has finished outside the top 10 in two of the three races this season, he did finish second at Atlanta. Gragson has the capability to do well today at a track he is very confident at.
39208 Ben Rhodes +1400
Ben Rhodes has surprisingly long odds given how well he has done this year. He is one of few drivers in the series that has finished in the top 10 in all three races this year and in the top 5 in two of them. Martinsville hasn’t been his best track, but I think you are seeing improvement from him at all tracks this season. He is a former winner in the series, so its definitely within reason for Rhodes to make a run at the win today for a nice payout.
