NASCAR Draft Kit: 2021 Truck Series Rankings

This article is part of our NASCAR Draft Kit series.

  1. Sheldon Creed – No. 2 GMS Racing Chevrolet – The young GMS Racing talent was the irresistible force that no one saw coming in 2020.  In just his second full season of Camping World Truck Series competition, Creed stormed to five victories and 13 Top-10 finishes to take the crown. He would have to race hard over those final three races of last season, winning two of those, to upset the other championship contenders.  For Creed's next act, he will work to defend that championship in 2021 and build on last season's performance.  He and crew chief, Jeff Stankiewicz, really seemed to click over the final third of last season.  The No. 2 GMS Racing team has all the momentum heading into the new season, and it's clear that Creed has the talent to take them a long way.
  2. Austin Hill – No. 16 Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota – Hill was clearly the driver to beat for the championship last season.  He had a strong campaign posting two wins and 17 Top-10 finishes.  However, a bit of bad luck over the final two races would take him out of championship contention.  It was a bitter pill to swallow given the good season.  Hattori Racing will put 26-year-old back behind the wheel of the team's Toyota in 2021.  Over the last two season's Hill has averaged three wins and 15 Top-10 finishes.  That level of performance easily slots him in to the championship contender category.  Hill and crew chief Scott Zipadelli
