Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gase makes the jump from Jimmy Means Racing to Go Green Racing in 2018. In last year's full stint with the No. 52 team the veteran driver earned two Top-10 and five Top-20 finishes en route to finishing the season 22nd in the driver standings. Now he moves to the No. 35 Ford and looks to give this small race team a boost. Sparks Energy will be the main primary sponsor and help fund this small team's efforts. Gase has 175-career Xfinity Series starts, so that was the experience GGR wanted in the seat of their new team. The potential results are debatable give the cross between Gase's talent vs. the newness of this race team.
Gase will once again take on a part-time schedule in the Monster Energy Cup Series and a full-time slate in the Xfinity Series for JMR. Unfortunately, the results for this No. 52 team were spotty at best last season. Gase struggled to just one Top-20 finish in 2016 and posted a lowly 27.8 average finish. His problem primarily stemmed from poor qualifying efforts and losing the lead lap early on in races. It led to a lot of racing in the back of the field for Gase and poor finishes. The team returns intact for the upcoming season and this 142-start veteran driver will look to penetrate the Top 20 of the driver standings in the Xfinity Series for just the second time in his career.
Gase returns to the No. 52 Chevrolet again this year. The 22-year-old turned in his best effort last year during just his second full season of Xfinity Series racing. He qualified for all 33 events and even posted his first-career Top-5 finish, which came in the spring Talladega race. He improved his DNF’s from 11 the previous year to just six. That helped his average finish climb from 29.4 to 27.5. That is some significant improvement from Gase and a sign of more competitive racing. However, once again Top-20 finishes were hard to come by last season. We expect only very little improvement in 2016, which can only be measured in inches. Gase has a lot of upward potential, but it’s limited by this small team’s resources and lack of funding.
Gase already has 23 career starts in this racing series despite the fact that he’s only competed part-time in the last two years. At 20-years-of-age he has a lot more time to learn, and he will get the opportunity this season. The No. 52 team of Jimmy Means Racing intends to field the youngster in the full schedule in 2013. Gase made most of his starts over the last half of last year with this race team. He earned a modest two Top-25 finishes in that effort, but also DNQ’d on three occasions for this team. Hopefully the first full-season of racing will help Gase’s efforts, but the small team’s potential limits too many expectations.
