2014 Fantasy Racing Outlook

Menard and the No. 27 team has grown comfortably predictable the last few seasons. That may not be satisfactory for this driver, but it does make his ceiling easy to forecast for fantasy racing purposes. Menard has posted standings finishes of 17th-, 16th- and 17th-place the last three years and he's claimed an average of 8.5 Top-10 finishes over that span. What it will take for this driver and team to get over this “hump” is not yet known, but it seems that the invisible wall may be insurmountable for Menard. He'll remain paired with crew chief Slugger Labbe in 2014, so at least team chemistry shouldn't be changed. Unless a major breakthrough occurs, we expect Menard to be in store for another eight or nine Top-10 finish campaign, with victory lane dancing just outside his reach.
