Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Grant Enfinger
Johnny Sauter is motivated to win this weekend to put himself back into championship contention.
Brandon Jones will start Friday night’s race inside the top 10, which gives him an early advantage over the rest of the field.
While avoiding the chalk play in Kyle Busch may be a risk, Johnny Sauter checks in at a much more affordable rate, has produced five victories at Texas and finished third in this race last year.
Johnny Sauter should be one of the faster trucks in Saturday's race, he has the potential to win and likely will also add finish differential points if he can make it to the finish
With two top-fives from three Pocono starts, Brett Moffitt makes a logical top choice for C.J. Radune this week.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
At the time of this writing the team's plans have not been announced, but we expect Enfinger to be back for season three in the No. 98 Ford F-150. The veteran driver posted career-best marks last season with this race team. Enfinger raced to his second-career truck series victory (Las Vegas), 15 Top-10 finishes and a lofty fifth-place finish in the final driver standings. He was shut out of racing for the championship at Homestead, but that could change in 2019. The 34-year-old driver should be paired once again with Jeff Hensley at crew chief, and continue to build on the upward momentum they've developed the past two seasons.
The 33-year-old journeyman driver will return for a second season of competition with Curb Racing. The team makes the shift from Toyota to Ford in 2018 and we'll see if that pays dividends. Enfinger peddled to a surprising nine Top-5 and 15 Top-10 finishes in 2017 with this same race team. They'll set their sights higher for this campaign. Jeff Hensley will return at crew chief and continue to build on what the two accomplished last season. Enfinger may be older than the average truck series driver, but he is no less talented. He won 16 races in 10 years of ARCA Series competition and won the 2015 championship in that racing series.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of sponsorship, the Rico Abreu experiment ended at the No. 98 ThorSport Racing team. It could have been slightly affected by lack of performance. The rookie driver struggled to just five Top-10 finishes in his debut in the truck series and wound up a somewhat disappointing 13th in the final driver standings. Now, one of the premiere stables in the Camping World Truck Series has two vacancies to fill. With the lack of sponsorship, the No. 98 team could fall under the axe. However, if a driver and sponsor could be found, this is a team that could break into the tail end of the Top 10 of the driver rankings. The silly season days of late January and early February will determine the fate of this team, so be watching closely. - UPDATE - Enfinger has signed to drive the strong No. 98 Toyota Tundra in 2017. There's loads of potential with this talented youngster and this good team together this season.
The reigning ARCA Series champion will move up full-time to the truck series in 2016. GMS Racing has given him the seat of the No. 33 Chevrolet and expanded to three teams this season to get the 30-year-old veteran into this division of NASCAR. Enfinger has impressive numbers in the ARCA Series. Along with his one championship, he has 14 victories and 64 Top-10 finishes over 91-career starts. While Enfinger has limited experience in the trucks with just a scant six starts, he has the years of driving experience that you look for in terms of potential to succeed when making a jump like this one. He’ll be paired with crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz and together the two should be up for some big things this season.
