2019 Fantasy Outlook
This team is expected to race full-time, but with a number of different drivers behind the wheel. The vast majority of the starts should go to McLeod. It's yet to be determined how many, and who will race alongside the veteran. McLeod has made 25 and 26 starts respectively the last two seasons, however, split between the team's multiple cars. The veteran driver registered five Top-20 finishes last year, but also collected six DNF's. Lack of continuity in the driver's seat limits this team's ability to develop chemistry and race more competitively. Read Past Outlooks
