We begin the Nascar weekend with the Truck Series running of the Pocono Organics 150. Pocono is one of the most interesting tracks on the circuit, as we have 3 different turns and 3 different straightaways to contend with. Saturday’s Truck Series race will be 60 laps, 150 miles, so relatively a short race. We should see a tremendous sense of urgency from all drivers at the drop of the green flag of the Pocono Organics 150.
Here are a 5 drivers to consider for the Pocono Organics 150.
Brett Moffitt +550- Moffitt finished 5th in the 2019 version of the Pocono Organics 150 in this Maury Gallagher truck. In 2020, the Truck series has not run at a track similar to Pocono, but Brett has a few solid performances this year. Moffitt has 2 top 10s in the last 3 races, and almost had a chance to win in Charlotte back in May. Brett is the outright favorite to win this race, and I think we see him in the top 5 throughout this race.
Ross Chastain +650- Ross has finished in the top 15 in every truck race in the 2020 season. Ross won the 2019 Pocono 150, and I think he has an excellent opportunity to win again on Saturday. Ross will be pulling double duty at Pocono this weekend, as he will run the Xfinity race as well on Sunday afternoon. Chastain is one of the most experienced entered into the field for Saturday’s race, and I will have action in on him.
Brandon Jones +850- Jones will make a rare start in the Kyle Busch Motorsports truck at Pocono on Saturday. No secret that the 51 truck Jones will be driving on Saturday is fast. Kyle Busch has won 2 races in the 2020 season in this 51 truck, and I strongly believe Jones can as well. Brandon has superb amount of experience, and with this fast 51 truck he should run top 5 at least.
Zane Smith +1500- Zane is an up and coming driver for Maury Gallager, and very exciting to watch. Zane will be in similar equipment has his teammate Brett Moffitt. Zane has laps here at Pocono, and he won the 2018 ARCA Menards Series race at Pocono. Zane has top 10 speed in in this truck, and he is a great dark horse pick for the Pocono Organics 150.
Todd Gilliland +2000- Todd is my longshot to win the Pocono Organics 150 on Saturday afternoon. Todd has 3 top 10s in the 5 Truck races that have been completed in 2020. 2 of the 5 races in 2020, Todd has succumbed to crashes, but was running top 15 before these crashes. Gilliland should continue to have top 10 speed this weekend at Pocono, in face maybe even top 5 speed. I will sprinkle some action in on Todd Gilliland on Saturday afternoon.
