These are the drivers that we can typically expect to, you guessed it, dominate the race. When we think dominator we are looking for guys that will be in a position to lead a hefty amount of laps as well as be able to turn over fastest laps.
Ty Majeski ($11,000), Starting on the Pole
Majeski starts from the pole which has been benficial in years past in this race. The polesitter has won this race four times and has led 36 or more laps in three of the last five races here. Majeski has been great with eight top-10’s out of 11 races but is still looking for his first win. This will be his fourth time starting on the front row this season.
Zane Smith ($10,800), Starting 6th
Starting sixth, Smith finds himself in a great spot at the winning in four of the last five races here has started inside the top-seven. Smith led 45 laps here in 2020 from the pole and finished seventh. In the three races in a truck that he’s finished here, Smith has a fifth, seventh, and ninth place finish.
Ben Rhodes ($9,800), Starting 2nd
I like Rhodes here a ton. Last year starting 15th, Rhodes found a way to lead 43 laps before finishing eighth. Rhodes’ first trip here in 2016 he started on the pole and finished second. Over his career, Rhodes has an average finish of eighth. The salary discount from Majeski to Rhodes is significant if you think Rhodes could get the jump from the start like I do.
Christian Eckes ($9,500), Starting 3rd
Place Differential Targets
Matt Crafton ($8,700), Starting 34th
Without overthinking this one, Crafton starting this deep in the field will lead to heavy ownership. Plain in simple, if you’re looking for some safe points without worrying about ownership, just plug him in.
Matt DiBenedetto ($9,300), Starting 15th
Matt D was able to make some ground in this race last year when he started 16th and finished sixth. Ownership should be high here with his starting position.
Connor Jones ($6,300), Starting 24th
Timmy Hill ($6,700), Starting 27th
Rajah Caruth ($7,400), Starting 34th
Jack Wood ($7,500), Starting 21st
