Daniel Hemric, who lead 28 laps and finished third at Martinsville in April, leads C.J. Radune’s Higher-Risk Lineup.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
For the third season in a row, Labonte will make some part-time starts on just the restrictor-plate tracks in 2016. His partnership with Go FAS Racing will continue in that capacity. The 2000 Sprint Cup Series champion gets those valuable provisional starts and it helps this small team to guarantee a starting spot on the grid for the Daytona and Talladega events. Labonte had only marginal success in this capacity last year. The 51-year-old only claimed a pair of top-25 finishes in those four starts. That mirrored his 2014 efforts for this small race team. Due to his very small schedule and limited ability to impact in those races, Labonte presents nearly no fantasy racing worth in the upcoming season.
Labonte returns for his third season of racing with JTG Daugherty Racing and 22nd overall. The veteran driver is coming off a 23rd-place finish in the driver standings last year, his best finish since the 2008 season. This small race team has managed to stay competitive despite their funding and sponsorship disadvantages in a sport dominated by corporate and racing giants. Labonte racked up two Top 10’s and 14 Top 20’s last season and is looking for much more in the upcoming season. He will be paired with a new crew chief and that’s a bit of a concern going forward. How quickly Labonte develops a rapport with this new chief will be key to his success in 2013.
Labonte comes to the history-rich #43 Petty Enterprises team. Todd Parrott joins the rebuilding effort atop the tool box. This will probably be the most watched team of 2006. Don't expect overnight miracles, but slow and steady improvement.
