In the winner-take-all finale at Phoenix Raceway, John Hunter Nemechek will hope to close out a very successful season with a final victory.
After a four-week break, the Truck series is back, and John Hunter Nemechek leads the series in wins and will start this week's penultimate race on pole.
John Hunter Nemechek won the spring race in Las Vegas and should continue to show his dominance with only four races left in the season.
Todd Gilliland has two top-10 finishes in three races at Bristol and hasn't finished worse than 14th at the track. He also starts in the second row, giving him prime track position to challenge for a win.
While, John Hunter Nemechek didn’t have an optimal start to the playoffs, he remains one of the most successful drivers on the circuit this season.
2020 Fantasy Outlook
This team will be transitioning from part to full-time in the upcoming season. They have made a strategic alignment with Hattori Racing that will help them to run the full schedule. Kraus made just four starts last season in this truck, but did nab a surprising Top 10 at Dover in those limited starts. Kevin Bellicourt was the crew chief and is expected to return for Kraus' full-season effort. This young driver was last season's K&N Pro Series West champion with five victories and 13 Top-10 finishes, so the level of talent is obvious. The headwinds of a relatively new race team will be their biggest limiting factor.
