2017 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Busch is the second-best driver in the Stewart Haas Racing stable. He's been very consistent since his move to this team three seasons ago. The veteran driver has averaged 1.5 wins, 10 Top-5 and 21 Top-10 finishes over the last two seasons alone. That's been good enough to earn eighth- and seventh-place finishes respectively in the driver standings those two years. The SHR stable is moving from Chevrolet to Ford in 2017, so there could be some growing pains early in the season. However, crew chief Tony Gibson and Busch have some excellent chemistry and they should be able to work through these challenges. We expect another season with a win or two for the No. 41 SHR team and yet another berth in the Chase for the Cup once we get to Chicago in September.

As Busch embarks on his 17th full season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and his fourth with Stewart-Haas Racing, he has a good reason to feel right at home as the driver of the No. 41 Haas Automation/Monster Energy Ford, as the 2017 marks a homecoming for Busch to Ford Motor Company, the manufacturer with whom he won the 2004 Cup Series championship, Stewart Haas Racing PR reports.
