Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Stewart Friesen
C.J. Radune notes that Zane Smith will line up eighth Saturday, which could be a springboard to a top-10 finish.
John Hunter Nemechek won the spring race in Las Vegas and should continue to show his dominance with only four races left in the season.
Todd Gilliland has two top-10 finishes in three races at Bristol and hasn't finished worse than 14th at the track. He also starts in the second row, giving him prime track position to challenge for a win.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Canadian driver took big steps in 2019, and took this No. 52 HFR team into championship contention in the process. Friesen won two events and posted career-high marks of 12 Top-5 and 16 Top-10 finishes. The 36-year-old veteran raced his way deep into the playoffs, but pulled up short of the title finishing 11th-place at Homestead. It was still a very impressive campaign for the four-season driver. Friesen will once again pilot the No. 52 truck again in the upcoming season, but HFR switches from Chevrolet to Toyota. The team will get trucks from Kyle Busch Motorsports in a cooperative effort with that strong organization. Trip Bruce will once again call the shots as crew chief, and Friesen will slug it out with all comers looking to win the championship.
The veteran Canadian racer grew by leaps and bounds last year in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Friesen started all 23 events in his No. 52 Chevy Silverado and posted some great numbers. His nine Top-5 and 16 Top-10 finishes were career-best marks. Friesen would make a good push into the truck series playoffs, but fall short of racing for the crown at Homestead. Still, he would race among the leaders in last season's finale and finish an impressive fourth in the last race of last season. Friesen has served notice that he can compete at the front of the pack and challenge for victories. While he's yet to break through into victory lane to this point in his career, Friesen should make that breakthrough in 2019.
