The High Line – Craftsman Truck Series – Weatherguard Truck Race – Bristol Motor Speedway – March 16, 2024

Top Drivers

Kyle Busch ($15,000)

This seems obvious, he’s one of the best drivers ever to hit Bristol. However, KB comes with a crazy price tag but for a guy that’s won at a track 23 times in total (five times in a Truck) it’s hard to argue that he’d be expensive. Whether or not we can build a strong lineup around him will depend on if we can find some “safe” value plays, easier said than done in the Truck Series.

Corey Heim ($10,000)

Corey Heim snags Bristol Truck win, advances to title race

Heim is a promising young driver in the XFINITY Series but he’ll be in the Truck here at a place where he’s won before, last fall when he started 11th. While he’s not been on the track much (twice in Trucks, once in ARCA), he’s extremely talented and when he won here last Fall he overtook a DOMINANT Christian Eckes truck (which led 150 laps) to do it.

Christian Eckes (9,800)

Speaking of Eckes, he’s another talented young driver and he’s run three times here in a truck. In those three races Eckes has a second place finish, the aforementioned dominant performance, as well as an eighth and 12th place finish. Eckes will be there to compete for the win all day.

Grant Enfinger ($9,300)

For Enfinger this will be his eighth time in a truck at Bristol and with a lot of success. Even though he hasn’t logged a win here, Enfinger has an average finish of fourth with a third, fourth, second, sixth, and fifth place finish in his last five races at Bristol. Overall it’s five top-five finishes here for the veteran.

Rajah Caruth ($8,700)

Caruth has already had his first career win this season and in three races has three top-10’s on his ledger. In last Fall’s Bristol race Caruth impressed and finished sixth in what was just his second trip to the short track. There’s a lot to like so far with how Caruth is progressing as he has a full-time ride with some significant backing with Hendrick Motorsports sponsoring the truck for the full season.
