Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Riley Herbst
Tyler Riddick won consecutive Homestead races in 2018 and 2019, and has the speed and deep starting position combination on which fantasy players should capitalize.
C.J. Radune is picking Riley Herbst for his Higher-Risk Lineup for Herbst’s consistency on these types of tracks; he’s a constant top 15 finisher.
The Truck series races on the first of its four road courses Friday, and Austin Hill could offer fantasy players finish differential points if he does well on the Daytona course.
Noah Gragson scored two wins last season with one of those victories being the 2020 edition of this race, where he led 15 laps.
Defending race winner Grant Enfinger has performed well at this track the last few years and Friday shouldn’t be an exception.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
After two seasons of part-time, preparatory racing in the Xfinity and Gander Truck Series, Herbst is ready to go full-time in 2020. He will be a Rookie of the Year candidate and make a strong bid to claim those honors. Herbst has spent the majority of his time racing in the K&N and ARCA Series the last four seasons, while he only has 17-combined starts in the Xfinity and Gander Truck Series. The lack of seat time in NASCAR's upper divisions is a bit concerning. However, Herbst did show some flashes in his nine Xfinity Series starts last season. The youngster will be guided by veteran crew chief Dave Rogers and two will look to hit the ground running in the upcoming season. Herbst still has a lot to learn, so inconsistency could be an issue for this driver and team well into 2020 campaign.
Signed to race with Joe Gibbs Racing in the No. 18 Toyota this season. Herbst will make eight starts in the team's powerful Toyota Supra. The 19-year-old driver is a rising talent, and should make good impact in his handful of starts.
