2020 Fantasy Outlook
This team will be transitioning from part to full-time in the upcoming season. They have made a strategic alignment with Hattori Racing that will help them to run the full schedule. Kraus made just four starts last season in this truck, but did nab a surprising Top 10 at Dover in those limited starts. Kevin Bellicourt was the crew chief and is expected to return for Kraus' full-season effort. This young driver was last season's K&N Pro Series West champion with five victories and 13 Top-10 finishes, so the level of talent is obvious. The headwinds of a relatively new race team will be their biggest limiting factor. Read Past Outlooks
Runner-up Finish at Darlington
Gander Outdoors Truck
September 6, 2020
Kraus finished second in the South Carolina Education Lottery 200 Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Darlington Raceway Speedway Sunday afternoon.
ANALYSIS
The youngster turned in his best performance of his brief truck series career Sunday at the Track Too Tough to Tame. Kraus started 13th on the grid and raced just outside the Top 10 most of the event. Kraus would push forward in stage 3 and the late cautions would help in regards to track position. The young driver would battle for the win over the final 2 laps but would finish 0.785-seconds behind winner, Ben Rhodes. It was Kraus' third Top 5 of the season, and career-best series finish.
