Ross Chastain
Premium Motorsports
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Chastain completed his first full season of Cup Series racing with the No. 15 Premium Motorsports team last year. The 26-year-old driver made 34 of the 36 events and raced to just two Top-20 finishes. Chastain accumulated six DNF's over the course of the season in what was an up-and-down campaign. Premium Motorsports has put Chastain back in the team's Chevrolet for the 2019 season and once again paired him with veteran crew chief, Pat Tryson. Sponsorship has been tough to sell for this ride, but they look they'll pull it off again this season and be fully funded. Chastain and the team really needs to improve on their 31.8 average starting spot from last year if they hope to improve. Read Past Outlooks

2008
Chastain will return for a fourth season of full-time Xfinity Series competition in 2018. He returns to the same JD Motorsports team that he competed with last year. Chastain had a pretty good season by all measures in 2017. He grabbed his first-career Top-5 finish, nabbed two Top-10 finishes and wound up career-best 13th in the final driver standings. The 25-year-old Floridian will look to improve on those marks in the upcoming season. With all parts and pieces of the No. 4 team returning, it's entirely possible. Chastain limited his DNF's to just two last year, and that was very instrumental in his improved consistency and good season.
Has signed with JD Motorsports to return to the team's No. 4 Chevrolet again in 2017.
Chastain did so surprisingly well in his first full season of Xfinity Series racing last year that JD Motorsports has invited him back to pilot the No. 4 Chevrolet once again. The 22-year-old Floridian racked up four Top-10 finishes and finished 15th in the driver standings last season. Chastain had some issues with posting five DNF’s during the campaign, but generally he finished most races on the lead lap. Super speedway and short track events seemed to be the team’s strength and should be once again in 2016. Gary Cogswell returns as crew chief to guide this young driver once again, so we expect to see some growth and improvement this season.
Team owner Brad Keselowski is starting up a new, second truck series team this year and he’s chosen Chastain to be the majority driver. Chastain will get 15 of the 22 events while owner Keselowski, Dave Blaney and Joey Logano will complete the schedule. The team’s performance will largely be tied to Chastain since he will be racing two thirds of the schedule. The youngster earned four Top 10’s racing the full schedule in 2012 with a much smaller race team. The No. 19 team should be poised for a good campaign despite the multiple driver lineup.
