And just like that we are at the fourth race in the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with a trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway. It has been two weeks since we last saw the Trucks race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway where John Hunter Nemechek left victorious. It was Nemechek’s first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win in four years of racing in the series. Nemechek was able to hold off his boss and fellow competitor Kyle Busch on the last lap. Kyle Busch Motorsports left with a one-two place finish on the night. Nemechek was able to lead 94 of 134 laps, which was of course a day high. Rounding out the top five was Austin HillStewart Friesen, and Matt Crafton. Moving to Atlanta Motor Speedway for this weekend’s race, we will look at a group of six drivers who, put together in your lineup have as good of a shot as any to win you some money for this race. As a side note, Kyle Busch has absolutely dominated at this track. In the last three years he has led 196 laps… the next best, Noah Gragson with 43. 

Below is a lineup that we believe can provide the best value for the Fr8Auctions 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on 03/20/2021 (DraftKings Values)

Driver #1   
Driver #2Grant Enfinger $ 9,000 
Driver #3   
Driver #4Johnny Sauter $ 7,900 
Driver #5Todd Gilliland $ 7,400 
Driver #6   

Grant Enfinger: Picking part-time drivers in DFS has its pros and cons, but with how well Grant Enfinger has raced in two races this season, honestly how can you not pick him. Enfinger is going to start this race 19th, which by itself has a lot of appeal due to his potential for point differential points. So far, in 2021 Enfinger has finished 11th at Daytona and seventh at Las Vegas. To add to his success this year Enfinger has arguably been the best driver at Atlanta the past three years. Since the start of the 2018 season, Enfinger has one win in 2020, two top-five finishes, top 10 finishes in all three races, and has led 11 laps. I think it goes without saying that Enfinger’s best year in the Truck Series was 2020. As a full time, driver, he finished the season with four wins (Daytona, Atlanta, Richmond, and Martinsville), eight top-five finishes, 13 top 10 finishes, and 156 laps led. The four wins were a career high. I do not see why Enfinger cannot get into the top 10 this weekend. If he does you will be happy, he is in your lineup. 

Johnny Sauter: Here is another driver who has not had the best start to the 2021 NASCAR Truck Series. In three races Johnny Sauter has 27th, 18th, and 15th place finishes. Not great, however, this is out of character for the Truck Series veteran. In his last three races at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Sauter has two top-five finishes (second in 2019 & third in 2018) and has led 21 laps. Of course, Sauter has not been able to return to the success he had from 2016-2018 where he had 13 wins, 39 top-five finishes, 55 top 10 finishes, and led 1,170 laps in 69 races. In that three year stretch he was good, and well he still is. Sauter is still the sole owner of fifth place in Truck Series wins with 24. From a DFS perspective Sauter provides some good value this week. With him starting 13th he has potential to compete for a top 10 or even top-five spot early. Atlanta has been a good track for him in the past and I think he repeats his success here this week. 

Todd Gilliland: In his fourth season full-time with the NASCAR Truck Series, Todd Gilliland has been off to a good start. In three races he has finished 31st, fourth, and 13th. Overall, not bad. Now I know my theme this week has been drivers who have had good not great starts to the season, but I remind myself that it is still very early. Gilliland has raced at Atlanta twice over the last three years where he has placed top-five once and top 10 both times. Gilliland still only has one career win, that coming at Martinsville in 2019, his next one however with how he has been constantly getting better could be just around the corner. In 2020 Gilliland finished with four top-five finishes, 10 top 10 finishes, and 98 laps led. A downgrade from his 2019 production but we all know 2020 was a difficult season for many reasons. With Gilliland starting in the ninth position this week I think it really opens the door for him to get into the top-five early and stay there.

Below is a lineup that we believe can provide the best value for the Fr8Auctions 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on 03/20/2021 (DraftKings Values)

Driver #1Brett Moffitt $ 9,300 
Driver #2Grant Enfinger $ 9,000 
Driver #3Ben Rhodes $ 8,800 
Driver #4Johnny Sauter $ 7,900 
Driver #5Todd Gilliland $ 7,400 
Driver #6Tanner Gray $ 6,700 

Brett Moffitt: 2021 has not been a year to remember so far for the driver of the Number 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet. Brett Moffitt has yet to finish in the top 10, which of course is strange for him. Moffitt has a lot of racing experience in all three NASCAR Series. Moffitt’s best finish this year was the last race at Las Vegas where he finished 17th. Now if we put 2021 aside and look at how he has fared in previous years at Atlanta there is a lot more to get excited about. In the previous three years at Atlanta Moffitt has finished eighth in 2020, fourth in 2019, and won the race in 2018. Now if you want to go way back you will find that Moffitt has an eighth-place finish in 2015 at Atlanta when he was racing full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series. Overall, I would say that Moffitt races well at Atlanta and it has been one of his more successful tracks. Compared to the rest of the field I think that his price of $9,300 is a steal. Look for great value this week in Moffitt as he contends for the win. 

Ben Rhodes: Before I even get into how he has done at this racetrack or how he did last year, just put Ben Rhodes in your lineup and move on. There is only one driver this year with multiple wins, and that is Rhodes. Rhodes pulled off wins at the first two races at Daytona this year. He then followed that up with a 10th place finish at Las Vegas. Rhodes has been dynamite this year and for what it is worth he was pretty good last year too. How he is only worth $8,800 this week, blows me away. The value here is astounding, not very often do you get the second-place driver in points for only $8,800. Anyways, let’s look at how he has done at Atlanta. In the last three years he has two top-five finishes, top 10 finishes in all three races ad has led 20 laps. 2020 was also a great year for him where he had one win, nine top-five finishes, 14 top 10 finishes and led 103 laps. As I started earlier, just put him in your lineup and move on, you do not see value like this often. 

Tanner Gray: Returning for his second full time season Tanner Gray is driving the Number 15 Ford F-150 for David Gilliland Racing. In Tanners rookie season, he earned four top five finishes and eight top 10 finishes. Outside of his eight races where he finished top 10, he had an average finish of 16.1 in 2020. At Atlanta in 2020 Gray was excellent. In his one career race at Atlanta he races one he started 21st and finished 11th. I really like Gray at his price point this week. His starting position of 14th is not of course the most appealing, as this is a guy you like to start from the back with his price point of $6,700.  However, with his success at this track last year, this 2021 race could line up for a good week of racing for Gray. Another thing to keep in mind is that Gray has moved up an average of 11.5 spots in the last two races.
