Ryan Preece
JTG/Daugherty Racing
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Preece comes back for season two at JTG Daugherty Racing. This year he will pilot the team's No. 37 Chevrolet entry after the departure of Chris Buescher. Preece's rookie campaign held a modicum of success. He grabbed one Top-5 and three Top-10 finishes last year in the team's No. 47 Chevrolet. The larger ovals and superspeedways were really this driver and team's sweet spot and where Preece posted his best finishes. That should be the case again in 2020. He was slowed by 6 DNF's last season, and he'll need to lower that mark if he hopes to improve and climb the driver standings. Trent Owens will call the shots from atop Preece's war wagon. Owens guided Buescher to a 20th-place points finish last year, so there's good reason to hope Preece will improve under his guidance. There's good upside with this young driver and potential to climb higher in these rankings by season's end. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2014
Preece takes over for the long-time veteran A.J. Allmendinger in the JTG Daugherty Racing No. 47 Chevrolet this season. The 28-year-old Rookie of the Year candidate has spent the last few seasons racing part-time in the Xfinity Series. He posted his best campaign yet in 2018 with one victory and 10 Top-10 finishes in just 15 starts for Joe Gibbs Racing in the No. 18 Toyota. Preece really carved out his reputation in his teens and early 20s racing well in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Series. He grabbed 22 victories there and a championship in 2013 as well as four other occasions where he finished runner-up in the points. Preece has an appealing age and maturity that most teams are looking for in a driver, but he lacks the crucial experience racing in Cup cars that would make this transition easier. It's going to be an uphill and learning season for Preece in the No. 47 machine.
The No. 18 JGR Toyota team retains the top of the Xfinity Series rankings again this season. Even though Busch will have his slate reigned back to just seven starts. He should be good for three or four wins in those efforts. Youngster Preece will be in the driver's seat for at least 10 events. He nabbed one win and four Top-5 finishes in a very limited schedule for JGR last year. The remaining starts will be divided up by Gibbs' strong Cup driver lineup. The talent and team will again be the class of the Xfinity Series in 2018. It would not be surprising at all to see this team break into the six-or-seven-win range with about 25 or more Top-10 finishes. Despite the rotating driver lineup, this is about as good as it gets in this division of NASCAR.
Signed with JD Motorsports in February 2016 to race the full Xfinity Series season and contend for Rookie of the Year honors.
