With the promotion of reigning truck series champion, Christopher Bell, we're left to wonder who will step up and contend with Sauter for the 2018 Camping World Truck Series championship. That shift in power, vacuum of talent, could propel the GMS Racing veteran back to the crown. He'll certainly be the odds on favorite to race away with the championship. Sauter posted four wins and 19 Top-10 finishes last season in finishing runner-up in the points. Those numbers are nearly identical to the ones he posted in 2016 en route to winning his first title. GMS Racing will bring back the same team and support and in our books that's good enough to make him the top of the heap entering the season.

  2. Johnny Sauter 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The move to GMS Racing last season paid off big time for Sauter. Not only did he win three races and collect 19 Top-10 finishes, but he finally captured the elusive Camping World Truck Series championship. After several seasons of near-misses at ThorSport Racing, Sauter was able to hoist the trophy at Homestead last November. With that accomplishment, Sauter and GMS have ascended to the throne of NASCAR's truck series. They will be the team to beat week-in and week-out for the championship in 2017. With the return of Sauter and crew chief, Joe Shear, the team is set to defend this title well in the upcoming season. There has been a changing of the guard atop this division of NASCAR, and Sauter is now its leader.
  3. Johnny Sauter 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Sauter makes the big jump from ThorSport Racing to GMS Racing this year. He takes over the truck that the Dillon brothers and Brandon Jones raced in 2015 to some modest success. That driver lineup combined for one win and 13 Top-10 finishes. The addition of Sauter to the No. 21 Chevrolet elevates this team overnight. The 37-year-old veteran had a bit of a lackluster 2015 with no wins, 16 Top-10 finishes and a fourth-place finish in the final standings. Sauter is capable of winning races and challenging for the championship. He should be able to do that at GMS Racing. While a championship this season is not likely, we wouldn’t rule it out down the road in the very near future.
  4. Johnny Sauter 2008 Preseason Outlook
    2012 was a down year for Sauter and the ThorSport Racing team. Despite the two victories and nine Top-10 finishes, he finished a lowly ninth in the final driver standings. That is a four-season low for Sauter. The ability to win races was there, but the marked consistency we expect from Sauter and the No. 13 team was no where to be found. That should change in the upcoming season. Sauter averaged one-and-half wins and 15 Top 10’s per campaign prior to last year’s drop in performance. He should return to this level in the upcoming season and that easily puts him back inside the Top 5 drivers of this racing series.
