2018 Fantasy Racing Outlook

At the conclusion of the 2017 season, Kenseth raced his last lap in the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing. Although it was a somewhat disappointing season (one win and 18 Top-10 finishes) he still finished a respectable seventh in the final driver standings, due in large part to the Chase format. The veteran driver did not renew his contract with Gibbs and is currently a free agent driver. Kenseth insists that he still wants to race, but he wants to race for a good team and at a highly competitive level. All indications from his past few seasons of performance are that he can still win races and challenge for championships. However, those opportunities with high quality teams are few. It would seem that Kenseth is looking at the prospect of sitting out the 2018 season, and hopefully finding a ride for 2019. We would place those odds as very slim, and we may have very well seen the last NASCAR laps of Kenseth's career this past November at Homestead.
