Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Harrison Burton
C.J. Radune believes this weekend's race at Martinsville could be the one at which Noah Gragson finally gets his win.
Harrison Burton, who starts the race in fifth position and finished fifth in last year’s race, is third in C.J. Radune’s Higher-Risk Lineup.
With two wins at Phoenix Raceway, Justin Allgaier makes C.J. Radune’s Higher-Risk Lineup this weekend.
C.J. Radune writes that Noah Gragson’s four sixth-place or better finishes from four Las Vegas starts make him a good option this week on the 1.5-mile oval.
Tyler Riddick won consecutive Homestead races in 2018 and 2019, and has the speed and deep starting position combination on which fantasy players should capitalize.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Joe Gibbs Racing development driver takes over the No. 20 Toyota Supra that Christopher Bell piloted the last few seasons. Bell won a staggering 16 races and claimed 46 Top-10 finishes spread over the last three seasons with this race team. Burton will have some very big shoes to fill indeed. The 19-year-old Burton spent the last four seasons prepping in the Gander Truck Series as well as some racing in the K&N Pro Series East and ARCA. He won the 2017 K&N Pro Series East championship, and racked up five victories in that series while also winning three-career ARCA events. However, Burton didn't enjoy nearly that much success in 38-career truck series starts. We believe that illustrates that he has some talent, but has yet to discover all his potential. It could take some time to find it even with this strong race team.
Burton returns to KBM this season, and will take on his first full season of action in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. The 18-year-old prodigy has raced a combined 15 starts in this division over the last three years with Kyle Busch Motorsports. Burton has forged four Top-5 and seven Top-10 finishes, including one pole, in those starts. The talent level is quite obvious. Burton nabbed five wins and marched to the championship in the K&N Pro Series East in 2017, so he's clearly one of the up-and-coming talents in the sport. KBM will put him in the strong No. 18 Toyota entry, and likely pair him with veteran crew chief Rudy Fugle. One or more visits to victory lane is all but in the bag, and an outside run at the championship is possible.
KBM will once again carry on their rich tradition of developing young NASCAR talent. Burton is the son of former NASCAR great, Jeff Burton. The 17-year-old got just a cup of coffee in the truck series in 2017, but now he'll up his participation in the upcoming season. Burton will get nine starts in the strong No. 51 Toyota Tundra. He nabbed just one Top 10 in his six starts last season, but we expect he'll be much better this season. Jones, Davis and Herbst will fill out the rest of the 25-event schedule. Mike Hillman Jr. will call the shots from the top of the war wagon, and this will be one of the stronger multi-driver teams in the Camping World Truck Series in 2018.
