Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Todd Gilliland
Mark Taylor ranks the drivers in this season's Truck Series. Is Austin Hill the driver to beat again this year?
C.J. Radune advises that Parker Kligerman, starting last, has a chance to offer fantasy players a decent amount of finish differential points if he has a good race.
With his 35th position this week, Grant Enfinger, who has never finished lower than 11th, should offer a lot of upside for fantasy players to consider this week.
Track position is key to staying competitive at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where Austin Hill is the defending champ of this race.
Brett Moffitt is the most recent Bristol winner in this group and sits atop C.J. Radune’s picks for this weekend’s first playoff race.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Gilliland and Kyle Busch Motorsports parted ways the end of last season. His 2019 campaign there fell a bit short of expectations. However, the 19-year-old driver landed on his feet at Front Row Motorsports. They are starting up a truck series team in association with DGR-Crosley in 2020. While optimism is high and expectations are reasonably high, it will be a bit of a transition for Gilliland. His one win, 14 Top-10 campaign with KBM last season didn't make the cut with that organization. Gilliland will be challenged to approach those numbers with this new race team. With just 48 truck series starts to his credit, this driver is still learning the ropes to some degree. Gilliland has some untapped racing potential, but it remains to be seen if it will emerge in the upcoming season.
KBM is gearing up big behind this driver and race team as Gilliland will take over the No. 4 entry full-time in 2019. The 18-year-old talent made 19 of 23 events with this race team last season and posted some respectably good numbers along the way. It was Gilliland's first near-full schedule in this division of NASCAR, so lessons were learned aplenty. Gilliland managed four Top-5, nine Top-10 finish, and he even grabbed a pole position at Martinsville. The youngster led over 200 combined laps for the season, so he did get a good taste for racing at the front of the pack. Now it's time for Gilliland to up the ante and grab his first-career win, and challenge for the championship. With the help of crew chief Marcus Richmond, it should happen.
KBM made big headlines in promoting Gilliland to the No. 4 Toyota Tundra in the off-season. He takes over the No. 4 truck that Christopher Bell raced to the championship in 2017. Gilliland will be paired with veteran crew chief, Marcus Richmond. The entire situation screams of the vote of confidence that owner Kyle Busch has in the young man. Gilliland turned heads in 2017 in just a part-time slate. The 17-year-old nabbed three Top-10 finishes in just six starts with KBM. Gilliland is the son of long-time NASCAR veteran David Gilliland. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. It's apparent that he has the racing gift. Gilliland won 12 races and back-to-back titles the last two years of racing in the K&N Pro Series West. That didn't happen by accident.
