Christian Eckes Starting First in Atlanta Truck Race

Christian Eckes will lead the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series to the green flag in the 2020 Vet Tix Camping World 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

This will be the fourth time the rookie driver has started from the pole.

The starting lineup for the Truck Series race was determined via randomized draw based on the owners’ point standings. Eckes has now started every race thus far this season inside the top 10.

GMS Racing teammates Tyler Ankrum and Brett Moffitt will start second and third, respectively. Austin Hill will start fourth, and Grant Enfinger, winner of the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, will round out the top five.

Four full-time NASCAR Cup Series drivers will compete in the 134-lap race. Kyle Busch will start sixth, Chase Elliott will start 13th, Brennan Poole will start 25th and John Hunter Nemechek will start 29th.

It will be a full field of 40 drivers, and seven drivers were sent home.
