2018 Team Preview – Roush Fenway Racing

Jack Roush, often referred to as “The Cat in the Hat,” owns what has been historically one of the most successful NASCAR teams. However, since losing Carl Edwards to Joe Gibbs Racing at the end of the 2014 season, Roush Fenway Racing has struggled. However, last year, they broke through to get back to victory lane at Talladega and Daytona.

2018 Outlook: Everyone remembers the Cinderella story called the 2011 Daytona 500. In just his second start, Trevor Bayne raced the famed Wood Brothers’ no. 21 to victory lane in the biggest race of the year. That was his first win, and as of now, his only win. Trevor Bayne has steadily improved in his full-time career, however, he hasn’t improved quite enough. If his results continue to sport the same numbers, his racing career will be over soon.

2018 Outlook: Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. used to be known for simply being “Danica Patrick’s boyfriend.” However, Stenhouse was finally able to break through and win not just once, but twice at two of NASCAR’s biggest tracks. Stenhouse followed his two wins into the second round of the playoffs before being eliminated. If Stenhouse continues to improve, watch out at Daytona and Talladega for the no. 17 car.
