2015 Fantasy Racing Outlook

We knew the Joe Gibbs Racing star would have a hard time living up to his seven-win 2013 campaign last season, and that was indeed the case. Kenseth was held winless in 2014, but managed to be one of the top contenders deep into the Chase and record a strong 22 Top-10 finish performance. It all added up to the consistency we come to expect from this driver and his fifth-straight season finishing inside the Top 7 in the final driver standings. Kenseth will attempt to get back to that 3-4 win plateau that we’re used to seeing for this driver and team, but that will largely fall on Joe Gibbs Racing improving overall as a team. Kenseth has the ability to win races and challenge for championships, and that’s always something to keep in mind on fantasy racing draft day.

Kenseth started the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota in the 23rd position at the Brickyard and was able to drive his way into the Top 15 over the course of the opening green flag run. A series of late cautions would allow Kenseth to advance back into the Top 10 late and he would finish seventh in the Jeff Kyle 400, joegibbsracing.com reports.
