2022 Fantasy Outlook
Last season was the young Georgian's first full-time season in the truck series. Smith left quite an impression after his two-win, nine Top 10 performance. The No. 18 Toyota was strong, and Smith got better with each start in 2021. He finished the campaign strong with his two victories coming in the last five events of last season. Smith will carry that momentum into 2022 and look to propel this team towards a championship run. The young driver will be paired with crew chief, Danny Stockman, once again and they'll look to continue building on what they established last year. At just 19-years-old, Smith still has much to learn but it appears he has loads of talent. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
The young prospect completed a 12-race schedule last season for KBM. It was a very promising campaign with Smith grabbing five Top-5 finishes in those dozen starts. There was some inconsistency early in the schedule, but Smith settled in nicely posting most of those good finishes in the stretch run. He should carry that momentum into 2021 as Kyle Busch Motorsports moves him into full-time competition and the team's No. 18 Toyota truck. This is the same team that Christian Eckes raced last season to the tune of seven Top-5 and 11 Top-10 finishes. KBM expects more from this team and they're going to look to Smith to deliver in his first full season. The young driver will look to crew chief Danny Stockman to mentor his efforts in pursuit of Rookie of the Year this season.
This was easily the most successful and dominant of the multi-driver teams in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2019. The team featured Christian Eckes and Brandon Jones mostly, but threw in a dash of Kyle Busch and other drivers for good measure. It all added up to six victories, 15 Top-5 and 17 Top-10 finishes. Those would be championship winning numbers were it not for the driver rotation. Busch was responsible for five of the six wins, and Greg Biffle picked up the other one with a surprising one-off start at Texas. We should see a similar driver lineup for 2020. Busch will get the maximum allowed of five starts, Smith should see the bulk of the remaining starts and Jones could equal or better the four starts he had with the team last season. You can count on this team being strong each weekend, and a threat to win every time Busch races.
