Alright guys, I wanted to go ahead and open this week's thread for the Truck Series race on Saturday. Green flag is scheduled for 1:18PM (EST). Not only does Talladega make this a wide open race but there are 0 Cup drivers entered into the field meaning this thing is really wide open. This one will be fairly tough to handicap but I think we have a good shot at a good profit if we hit. Good luck to everyone!

Can't wait today this truck race. Not sure as I wasn't thrilled with the odds by any means.  Especially the favorites in a plate race.  This I always one my fav truck events of the entire year though. I'm just gonna wait for now maybe til the books overreact off meaningless sessions and QUAILFYING. Haven't made up my mind. I'm not taking many though just not worth more than 3 drivers maybe unless there more very big longshots than I'm expecting.   Just taking this 1 a day at a time

I was looking at Sauter but did not like the odds. In fact, did not like much of the odds at all. 8 drivers under 10-1 and a host more at 13-1 or less. Maybe I was expecting too much but I am going to hold off for the time being.

Yeah I totally agree jay, and that's he GREAT thing about at least 1 CUP guy makes everybody else's odds a lot better.  These odds are garbage no way in hell would I bet any single digit drivers early but that's just me. I see zero value in that brcause NOBidy should be under 10-1. Period

Literally anybody can win these truck races at talladega that's for sure.  I just like watching them and taking some longshots with no cup guys.   I think betting a lot on the favorites odds wise is just about as low value wise of any truck race of the year.  Id just enjoy and play a few double digit guys and maybe a parlay.  Wish I could take a winner an use for cup race too but this weekend that's not a smart move imo like I usually would do. 

I sef can't wait to see this race early tomorrow.  Gonna be an interesting watch just not putting too much on it even for a truck race. But hopefully with odds u probably won't even need to.

Well I can't find the truck race on foxsports1 tomorrow so I guess a lot of us won't be watching it after all if its on the shittiest sports channel in history fxsports2.  unless u have to stream it in those shit streams that screw up my computer everytime I use them

I hope I'm wrong and just overlooked it or this really sucks and doubt I even bother with it.  And I was
really excited just to watch it if nothing else

Oh thanks jay, I didn't bother checking fox!

I've never  even heard of a truck series event on the main fox channel.

I'm guessing it's the 1st time it's ever been shown there
