Tyler Ankrum
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ankrum won't be 18-years-old until a few weeks after Daytona, so that means he can't race until event number four at Martinsville. However, the youngster is poised to run nearly the entire schedule with the exception of the first three races. Gilliland and Crosley formed this race team last season and hosted a number of different drivers between the two trucks. Ankrum made two starts, and grabbed a surprising Top-10 finish at Phoenix last fall. The young Californian has been building his racing resume for the last few years. Ankrum dominated the K&N Pro Series East in 2018 to capture four victories and the championship in that series. Now he'll look to grab truck series Rookie of the Year in what is mostly a full-time schedule in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
