You never know who will win in a race. Most of the time, several drivers have an equal chance of winning. Depending on the series, only drivers with high quality equipment have the chance to win. In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series you can expect the unexpected.

Expecting the unexpected comes with short track racing. The unexpected is also expected with the excitement of the Camping World Truck Series. Fox Sports 1 Pit Reporter and NASCAR Race Hub Guest Ray Dunlap commented on who to watch in the CWTS this Saturday in the Kroger 200. Dunlap had this to say:

“Martinsville typically plays into the hands of drivers who have a great deal of experience, so you’d look at Johnny Sauter, Matt Crafton, Ron Hornaday and Timothy Peters. But what’s unique is we always have a number of young drivers running Martinsville in the hopes of qualifying to run the bigger tracks.  We have seven drivers making their series debut this weekend.  With the mix of veterans and newcomers trying to showcase their young talent, we’ll have quite the mixed bag, which always spices things up.”

Dunlap also mentioned that for the first time in a while there isn’t a Kyle Busch or Kevin Harvick in the field, leaving it wide open. We could see a first time winner or we could see one of the series veterans get a much needed win.

If you had to put a wager on it, I would bet on Ron Hornaday or Johnny Sauter, two drivers that are looking to make a statement this year on the road to a championship. Short track racing is always fun and exciting, so expect a high-paced, entertaining Kroger 200 from Martinsville Speedway.
