The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will return to Nashville Superspeedway for the first time in a decade on Friday for the 2021 Rackley Roofing 200. John Hunter Nemechek is coming off his fourth win of the season last week in Texas and he and Ben Rhodes are the only two full-time truck drivers with multiple wins this season. However, the 2021 Rackley Roofing 200 field will also include drivers from NASCAR's higher levels who haven't seen the 1.333-mile tri-oval like William Byron and Ross Chastain.
Nemechek is the 2-1 favorite in the latest 2021 Rackley Roofing 200 odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Other NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville contenders include Sheldon Creed (11-2), Austin Hill (15-2), Rhodes (10-1), Byron (10-1 and Chastain (12-1). Before making any 2021 NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville predictions, be sure to see the latest 2021 Rackley Roofing 200 picks from SportsLine's proven projection model.
Developed by daily Fantasy pro and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, this proprietary NASCAR prediction computer model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account factors such as track history and recent results.
The model began the 2020 season paying out big by picking Denny Hamlin to win his second consecutive Daytona 500 at 10-1. The model also called Kevin Harvick's win at Atlanta and nailed a whopping nine top-10 finishers in that race. McClure then used the model to lock in a 10-1 bet on Hamlin for his win at Miami.
At The Brickyard, the model called Harvick's fourth victory of the season. Then during the 2020 NASCAR Playoffs, the model nailed its picks in back-to-back races, calling Denny Hamlin to win at 17-2 at Talladega and Chase Elliott to win at 7-2 at the Charlotte Roval.
In the 2021 season, the model has correctly predicted at least seven top-10 finishers in seven of the last 13 Cup Series races. It also called Kyle Busch's Truck series win in Atlanta and his Truck series win last month in Kansas. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, his model simulated the 2021 NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville race 10,000 times. Head to SportsLine to see the complete projected leaderboard for the 2021 Rackley Roofing 200.
Top 2021 Rackley Roofing 200 picks
One surprise: the model is high on Todd Gilliland, even though he's a massive 25-1 long shot in the latest NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville odds. He's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The 21-year-old is already in his fourth full-time season in the Truck Series and he's made the postseason in each of the last three seasons.
However, 2021 has already been his best season, as he enters Friday sitting fourth in the NASCAR Truck Series standings with seven top-10 finishes in 11 starts. Gilliland captured his second career truck win at Circuit of the Americas and has finished seventh or better in six of his last seven starts.
And a massive shocker: Ben Rhodes, one of the Vegas favorites at 10-1, stumbles big time and barely finishes inside the top 10. There are far better values in the field. The 24-year-old will enter Friday second in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standings and he's the only full-time truck driver with multiple wins this season besides Nemechek.
However, those two wins came in the first two races of the season and he's finished 10th or worse in six of his nine starts since. Rhodes is coming off a very disappointing 26th-place finish at Fort Worth last week and the inclusion of a few Cup and Xfinity drivers looking to get some additional track time at Nashville Superspeedway doesn't bode well given his current form.
How to make 2021 NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville predictions
The model is also targeting three other drivers with NASCAR Truck Series at Nashville odds of 12-1 or longer to make a serious run at winning it all. Anyone who backs these drivers could hit it big. You can see all the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series picks over at SportsLine.
