2021 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
Leads Daytona Truck Practice
Gander Outdoors Truck
February 11, 2021
Smith was fastest in opening practice for the NextEra Energy 250 Camping World Truck Series race at Daytona International Speedway Thursday afternoon. He turned a fast lap of 189.641 mph.
ANALYSIS
The first truck practice at Daytona would see Smith lead the way in his No. 18 Toyota Tundra. He edged Austin HIll to turn the fastest lap of the Daytona oval. The KBM Toyotas were well represented atop the scoring pylon with three teams, including Smith's, inside the Top 5 lap times. Smith will challenge the Top 5 in Friday night's season-opener at Daytona.

With his 35th position this week, Grant Enfinger, who has never finished lower than 11th, should offer a lot of upside for fantasy players to consider this week.
2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.
