2015 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Last season was a mixed bag for Vickers. He finally had the reigns of the No. 55 Toyota for a full campaign, but he fell short of expectations in a number of categories. Still, he had some bright spots along the way despite his inconsistency. Vickers claimed nine Top-10 finishes and one pole position in his full schedule. The 22nd-place finish in the final driver standings fell short of the teamís goal of making the Chase for the Cup field. While the potential is there for great things, Vickersí comeback in the upcoming season will be limited by health problems. The MWR driver had surgery to repair a hole in his heart in mid-December. He will miss the Daytona 500 and an undetermined number of early-season races.

Since being sidelined after a recurrence of blood clots in mid-March, Vickers has attended the Kentucky Derby and gone hiking in Colorado. But will he be able to get back behind the wheel of a Sprint Cup Series car next season? Off the grid due to medical issues of the fairly serious nature for the fourth time in his career, Vickers has missed all but two races this season and won't return to competition until 2016 at the earliest, FOX Sports reports.
