The No. 98 Toyota team will be split between the 2019 Regular Season Champion Grant Enfinger with Champion Power Equipment onboard, and a new face at ThorSport Racing, Eckes, ThorSport Racing PR reports.
ANALYSIS
The No. 98 Toyota Tundra will be a split ride in 2021. Regular driver Enfinger will share the truck with newcomer, Eckes. The young driver will get about 10 starts in the upcoming season in the team's No. 98 entry. Eckes spent last season with Kyle Busch Motorsports and earned 11 Top-10 finishes en route to a eighth-place finish in the points. He should make a very capable complement to Enfinger in this race team.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 19-year-old Eckes will be taking on his first full season of truck series competition this year, and he will be one of the top contenders to win Rookie of the Year honors. After two seasons of part-time racing for Kyle Busch Motorsports, Eckes will get his first full season ride in the No. 18 KBM Toyota Tundra. The youngster grabbed three poles, three Top-5 and four Top-10 finishes in limited action last season (eight starts), and he's poised to do much more in 2020. Veteran crew chief Rudy Fugle will lead the way and Eckes will be expected to do some big things. The 2019 ARCA Series champion has loads of talent, and this spot in the rankings is really the floor as far as potential to perform this season.
