It’s that sad time of year again. In under a week you’ll be sitting at Thanksgiving dinner listening to that fringe family member talk about conspiracy theories and how the frogs are turning gay and you don’t have NASCAR to look forward too. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series comes to an end tonight.
No seriously, the Camping World Series dies tonight. The series will be called the Gander Outdoors Series in 2019.
Tonight at Homestead-Miami Speedway the championship gets decided. Four guys enter, one leaves with the trophy. At least for now assuming he doesn’t fail post-race tech and we have to do a new photoshoot next week. Let’s break down the four contenders.
Sauter has convinced himself it’s himself versus the world. Every hates Johnny Sauter in his mind and he might not be far off. He’s a hell of a truck driver he just has a tendency to sound like a whiny prep school kid. GMS Racing has had the most sustained speed throughout the season and Sauter has 6 wins this year. He said not winning the championship this year would be a “disappointment.” Yeah, dude, everyone feels that way. He won the championship in 2016 so he has experience on his side.
The Iowa native sporting a porn stache that could see Brazzers snag him for a throwback episode, this is Florida after all, is carrying the most momentum in the Florida swamplands. The winner in Phoenix last week pissed off half the field with his OEM engine that everyone is convinced is better than the spec engine. Moffitt is running the spec motor tonight at Homestead, will the teams mind games play a factor or is Brett Moffitt just destined to be champion in that #16 truck? Hattori Racing hadn’t won before this season and now Moffitt has them in position for the title with 5 wins in the bank. They’re definitely the fan favorite.
The kid that is going to replace Ryan Truex Jr. next year in the #11 Xfinity car has three truck wins this season. Except all three have come after the leader stumbled but putting yourself in position to capitalize is half the game. Haley is moving up next year and he’s got nothing to lose tonight. Will he lick the stamp and send it when it matters? Tune in.
Win or lost Gragson is sliding into the DMs of some girl from Coral Gables tonight. Like most girls that move to Miami hoping to become models but ending up on some casting couch video, Gragson’s dreams likely won’t come true tonight. The #18 driver is headed to JRM next year replacing Elliott Sadler, he’s been known to make risky moves before. If there is one wildcard in the Championship 4 tonight it’s Gragson. Watch out for the #18 tonight.
Who Wins It?
Brett Moffitt. He’s been so solid on 1.5-mile tracks this season and the only track on the schedule comparable to Homestead in terms of tire wear is Atlanta. Guess who won that race? You already know. Book it on Moffitt.
