Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Stephen Leicht
Harrison Burton, who’s in C.J. Radune’s Higher-Risk Lineup, will start this race sixth and has two top-10 finishes from two series starts at the track.
C.J. Radune likes Austin Cindric as a top fantasy option both Friday and Saturday, as he finished second in both Richmond races last season.
If you're aiming to get risky this week, spending up on Kyle Busch may be the ticket to do just that. He starts 28th but has the ability to return dividends if he climbs up the leaderboard like usual.
The series will try something new, racing on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Justin Allgaier could do well with his previous Xfinity road course wins at Mid-Ohio and Road America.
Mark Taylor ranks the Xfinity Series drivers for the 2020 season. Does Justin Allgaier have what it takes to grab the top spot?
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Leicht made 17 starts last season, split between three different teams. With 13 total DNF's it was mainly a start-and-park effort for the veteran driver. His 2019 plans have not been announced as of late January, and it remains to be seen if Leicht will be racing in the upcoming campaign.
Made a handful of starts in 2017 with Obaika Racing. Was mostly a start-and-park effort. 2018 plans have not been announced.
The veteran driver Leicht is making a comeback after four years on the sidelines in NASCAR. He's made 76 starts in this division of NASCAR with one win and 16 Top-10 finishes to his credit. Leicht brings the experience and skill this small race team needs to race competitively. Obaika has only been in the Xfinity Series for the last two seasons, and featuring a whopping number of different drivers in their car. The stability and consistency that Leicht brings to the No. 77 team is a move in the right direction for success in a full-time schedule. However, the ability to crack the Top-20 on a consistent basis will be a challenge in this very competitive division of racing. Crew chief Carlos Contreras will hopefully be able to give him good cars and the guidance to perform well in his return to racing.
Leicht has not raced in NASCAR's top 3 divisions since 2012, and is assumed to be retired.
Leicht signed in late May 2012 with Circle Sport LLC to race in the No. 33 Chevrolet. His 2013 schedule is yet to be determined.
