2014 Fantasy Racing Outlook

After two seasons of part-time racing for Michael Waltrip's organization, Vickers gets his big break and return to full-time racing at NASCAR's top level. He'll pilot the No. 55 Toyota that he's shared with Mark Martin the last couple years in pursuit of the Sprint Cup championship. There are some factors to take into consideration when looking at this driver and team. First and foremost, Vickers' health is a concern. The veteran driver had the same blood clot condition that sidelined him in 2010 crop up again in October of last year and cut his season short. He's been receiving treatment and should be ready to go by Daytona, but this problem is ever-present. Secondly, crew chief Rodney Childers is gone. The duo combined for one victory and 11 Top-10 finishes in their 25 starts together. If Vickers is going to succeed it's going to have to happen with newcomer Billy Scott calling the shots. This team and driver situation has become less than ideal.
