Pre-Race Preview

Can anyone stop Ben Rhodes? After two straight wins to start the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, it’s starting to look like the driver of the No. 99 ThorSport Racing Toyota Tundra can’t lose. Rhodes will roll from the pole in Friday night’s Bucked Up 200 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (by way of the NASCAR performance metric formula).

If Rhodes can find victory Friday night in Las Vegas, he will match his win total from his first 119-career starts (3) in just three races in 2021.

So, how realistic is it that Rhodes wins? Well, his first career NCWTS victory came at LVMS back in 2017 and he has five top-10 finishes in eight starts at the 1.5-mile speedway in Sin City.

Starting alongside Rhodes will be 2020 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Sheldon Creed in the No. 2 GMS Racing machine. Creed has started his championship defense off with two-straight top-10 finishes, included an impressive second-place outing at the Daytona Road Course. However, in the closing laps of the Daytona Road Course, Creed and Rhodes made contact several times and neither driver was very happy following the race.

Could their rivalry spew over into the opening laps at Las Vegas while trying to take an early lead?

If so, John Hunter Nemechek, who will start third, will be ready to pounce. The driver of the No. 4 Kyle Busch Motorsports machine has been fast to start the 2021 campaign, he just hasn’t had luck on his side. If Nemechek can have a clean race on Friday, he could very well win the race.
