Past Fantasy Outlooks
This veteran driver will get to go full-time Cup Series racing this season. Ownership has combined with Joe Falk and the team has obtained Go FAS Racing's charter. That combined with a technical alliance with Stewart Haas Racing has birthed a new race venture called Live Fast Motorsports. McLeod will pilot the team's No. 78 Ford for the full 36-event schedule. He's a veteran of 57 Cup Series starts spread over five seasons. Now he'll get a crack at the full schedule and with what is likely his best ride to-date. Sponsorship is secure, the crew chief will likely be Todd Parrott and the equipment is Stewart Haas Racing quality. It should all add up to a pretty good splash for McLeod. The potential for performance and the upside is likely better than many of the drivers in the tier outside the Top 30.
This team is expected to race full-time, but with a number of different drivers behind the wheel. The vast majority of the starts should go to McLeod. It's yet to be determined how many, and who will race alongside the veteran. McLeod made 30 starts last season with 22 of those coming in the No. 15 Ford. The veteran driver claimed 11 Top-20 finishes although five of those came in another team's car. So the inconsistency behind the wheel, and unknown drivers are a limiting factor for this race team. The only concrete fact we can hang our hats on is that McLeod will field this car in all 33 events. It's typically running at the end of most races, although not terribly competitively.
This team is expected to race full-time, but with a number of different drivers behind the wheel. The vast majority of the starts should go to McLeod. It's yet to be determined how many, and who will race alongside the veteran. McLeod has made 25 and 26 starts respectively the last two seasons, however, split between the team's multiple cars. The veteran driver registered five Top-20 finishes last year, but also collected six DNF's. Lack of continuity in the driver's seat limits this team's ability to develop chemistry and race more competitively.
