Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Riley Herbst
Josh Berry starts in 28th position at Texas Motor Speedway, but with a win, three top-fives and six top-10s so far this season, he should move forward swiftly.
Fresh off of his second win of the season, Justin Allgaier will try to go back-to-back and defend his Dover win from 2020.
Justin Allgaier's past success at Darlington makes him one of C.J. Radune's top picks for this week.
Given his two Talladega wins last season and his excellent history on superspeedways, Justin Haley is a target for C.J. Radune this weekend.
C.J. Radune believes this weekend's race at Martinsville could be the one at which Noah Gragson finally gets his win.
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.
