The 2016 Speediatrics 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race will take place on Saturday, June 18th at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa. Auto racing betting odds to win it are as follows:
Ben Kennedy +4200
Christopher Bell +1900
Daniel Hemric +1900
Daniel Suarez +650
John Hunter Nemechek -+1600
Johnny Sauter +520
Matt Crafton +250
Parker Kligerman +3200
Ryan Truex +1600
Spencer Gallagher +3200
Timothy Peters +650
Tyler Reddick +1250
William Byron +450
Two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Matt Crafton is the online betting favorite to win the race. The ThorSport Racing driver won the 2011 edition (then known as Coca-Cola 200) after completing the 200 laps in 1:46:08 (the fourth best time) with an average speed of 98.932 mph. Last year (when the race was known as American Ethanol 200 Presented by Enogen), Crafton finished in fourth place behind Tyler Reddick, Brandon Jones, and eventual winner Erik Jones.
Crafton has won one race and finished in the top 5 three times in five starts at Iowa Speedway. In the previous NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race – the Rattlesnake 400 – Crafton finished in 2nd place behind William Byron, after winning the two races prior to that, the NC Education Lottery 200 and JACOB Companies 200. Crafton leads the 2016 standings with 194 points.
Two-time winner Jones, whom we mentioned above, currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, which means this year will not see a three-time, back-to-back winner. However, we could see a non-consecutive three-time winner in Timothy Peters, another auto racing betting favorite who won the 2012 and 2013 editions.
The Red Horse Racing Driver has yet to win a race this season, his best finish so far being the 3rd place in the Great Clips 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Nonetheless, Peters is second in the standings with 176 points. Peters is due for a win, but William ‘Lord’ Byron has better online betting odds.
In addition to winning the Rattlesnake 400 in Texas, the 18-year-old Byron also won the Toyota Tundra 250 in Kansas, but he wasn’t always that lucky. He finished 13th in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 and 32nd in the aforementioned (again) Great Clips after a low note crashing and a blown engine, respectively. However, he was able to bounce back and is not 3rd in the standings, 5 points behind Peters.
And just for the sake of completion, Daniel Suarez is another auto racing betting favorite, even though he only competes part-time in the Camping World Truck Series and is thus ineligible for Camping World Truck championship points. Well, there is always the thrill of competing just for the sake of competing.
