There are four drivers in this Saturday night’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race to keep an eye on that already have Homestead-Miami Speedway trophies to their name.

Driver standings leader Austin Hill being one of them, along with Brett Moffitt who won in 2018 to claim the championship, Matt Crafton who won there in 2015 and Johnny Sauter who won in 2011.

Moffitt is sitting in fourth in the series driver standings, 31 points behind points leader Austin Hill. The driver of the No. 23 GMS Racing Chevrolet has two starts at Miami and finished in the top five in both. This includes a fifth-place finish last year in addition to the 2018 victory. His average finish at Homestead is 3.0.

Crafton, driver of the No. 88 ThorSport Racing Ford and reigning series champion, is still trying to raise his title defense game. So far, his only top 10 this season through the first four races is a fourth-place finish at Las Vegas. He’s ranked 11th in the standings currently but has a solid resume at Miami. He has 19 starts at the South Florida track with 11 top 10s and not a single DNF.

Sauter, driver of the No. 13 ThorSport Racing Ford, comes to Miami abundantly motivated. After an inspection failure last weekend at Atlanta, Sauter dropped from a top-10 finish to last place. He has one win at Miami with nine top-10 finishes in 13 starts, including five of his last six starts.
