Tifft swapped from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Childress Racing over the off-season. He nabbed 13 Top-10 finishes last season in the No. 19 Toyota and wound up a respectable seventh in the overall final driver standings of 2017. Now he'll take the wheel of the No. 2 Chevy Camaro of RCR. The 21-year-old driver only has 44 starts of experience in Xfinity Series racing, so Tifft still has lots to learn. However, the pairing with this race team and organization should keep his trajectory pointed north. Of the many Childress teams the No. 2 camp has recently shown to be the fastest and most consistent of the camp. That's a good sign for Tifft's continued development.
Car: No. 2 Chevrolet   Crew Chief: TBA

  2. Matt Tifft 2017 Preseason Outlook
    With Kyle Busch and a driver rotation firmly set in the JGR No. 18, and with Daniel Suarez and another rotation set for the No. 20, that leaves Tifft to likely occupy the team's No. 19 Toyota. It hasn't been announced for sure as of this writing, but it's kind of a process of elimination. Tifft has spent the last two seasons competing on a part-time basis in the Camping World Truck Series and the Xfinity Series for Joe Gibbs and Kyle Busch. Over that span hea's amassed two Top-5 and 14 Top-10 finishes in 33 starts. Tifft hasn't set the world on fire, but the 20-year-old driver is ready to take the next step in his development. Hea's going to get a fantastic opportunity racing for one of the strongest stables in this division of NASCAR. Tifft will be teamed with crew chief Matt Beckman and the two will look to make some waves in the young driver's first full season. The potential here is great for this driver and team, but the learning curve will also be steep.
