Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Harrison Burton
Although Harrison Burton crashed in last year’s Kansas race, he’s had two wins this season and a fourth-place finish last week in Texas and may be ready for a Kansas victory.
If you're aiming to get risky this week, spending up on Kyle Busch may be the ticket to do just that. He starts 28th but has the ability to return dividends if he climbs up the leaderboard like usual.
Chase Briscoe is the hottest driver in the series at the moment and is an obvious top pick for C.J. Radune this week.
The series will try something new, racing on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Justin Allgaier could do well with his previous Xfinity road course wins at Mid-Ohio and Road America.
Noah Gragson has two wins this year, and his sixth-place finish at this track last season should make him a top fantasy selection this week.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Burton returns to KBM this season, and will take on his first full season of action in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. The 18-year-old prodigy has raced a combined 15 starts in this division over the last three years with Kyle Busch Motorsports. Burton has forged four Top-5 and seven Top-10 finishes, including one pole, in those starts. The talent level is quite obvious. Burton nabbed five wins and marched to the championship in the K&N Pro Series East in 2017, so he's clearly one of the up-and-coming talents in the sport. KBM will put him in the strong No. 18 Toyota entry, and likely pair him with veteran crew chief Rudy Fugle. One or more visits to victory lane is all but in the bag, and an outside run at the championship is possible.
KBM will once again carry on their rich tradition of developing young NASCAR talent. Burton is the son of former NASCAR great, Jeff Burton. The 17-year-old got just a cup of coffee in the truck series in 2017, but now he'll up his participation in the upcoming season. Burton will get nine starts in the strong No. 51 Toyota Tundra. He nabbed just one Top 10 in his six starts last season, but we expect he'll be much better this season. Jones, Davis and Herbst will fill out the rest of the 25-event schedule. Mike Hillman Jr. will call the shots from the top of the war wagon, and this will be one of the stronger multi-driver teams in the Camping World Truck Series in 2018.
