Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gragson returns for season two at Kyle Busch Motorsports and the No. 18 Toyota. He tore the series up in his 2017 rookie campaign that saw the 19-year-old win his first-career victory and collect 13 Top 10's. With the promotion of Christopher Bell, Gragson now carries the banner as the point man for Kyle Busch Motorsports. He'll be paired with crew chief Rudy Fugle, and the duo will set their sights on winning more races and challenging for the championship. Given the change in the talent pool and the obvious excellence of this driver and team, it's all on them to step up and win right away as the top team for manufacturer Toyota. Gragson should take some big steps in the upcoming season, and become the next big prospect driver to come out of the KBM camp, like Erik Jones and Bell.
The next up-and-coming prodigy for KBM and Toyota is Gragson. He'll take over the No. 18 Toyota Tundra this season. Gragson replaces the now-departed William Byron as this stable's new budding star. This young driver has been tearing up the K&N Pro Series East and West the last two years. With a combined six victories and 32 Top-10 finishes in just 42 starts, Gragson has been opening eyes at this level of NASCAR. The 18-year-old Las Vegas native also sneaked in a couple truck series starts last year for KBM in this truck, so he's not completely unfamiliar with these chassis. Gragson will face a sharp learning curve, but it appears he'll be a quick study. Teaming him with crew chief Marcus Richmond should yield pretty good results. Gragson will be a top contender for Rookie of the Year in the truck series.
