2021 Fantasy Outlook
The young prospect completed a 12-race schedule last season for KBM. It was a very promising campaign with Smith grabbing five Top-5 finishes in those dozen starts. There was some inconsistency early in the schedule, but Smith settled in nicely posting most of those good finishes in the stretch run. He should carry that momentum into 2021 as Kyle Busch Motorsports moves him into full-time competition and the team's No. 18 Toyota truck. This is the same team that Christian Eckes raced last season to the tune of seven Top-5 and 11 Top-10 finishes. KBM expects more from this team and they're going to look to Smith to deliver in his first full season. The young driver will look to crew chief Danny Stockman to mentor his efforts in pursuit of Rookie of the Year this season. Read Past Outlooks
Advances with Playoff Win
Gander Outdoors Truck
September 17, 2021
Smith won the UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway Thursday night.
ANALYSIS
The Joe Gibbs Racing youngster pulled a clutch performance Thursday night at the Bristol short track. Sheldon Creed had dominated much of the event, but a caution/restart with 5 laps to go gave Smith his opportunity. He would out-battle Creed in those final green-flag laps and take the lead. Smith would hold off Grant Enfinger by just 0.422-seconds to claim his first-career victory. The win advances him to the Round of 8 in the truck series playoffs.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
This was easily the most successful and dominant of the multi-driver teams in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2019. The team featured Christian Eckes and Brandon Jones mostly, but threw in a dash of Kyle Busch and other drivers for good measure. It all added up to six victories, 15 Top-5 and 17 Top-10 finishes. Those would be championship winning numbers were it not for the driver rotation. Busch was responsible for five of the six wins, and Greg Biffle picked up the other one with a surprising one-off start at Texas. We should see a similar driver lineup for 2020. Busch will get the maximum allowed of five starts, Smith should see the bulk of the remaining starts and Jones could equal or better the four starts he had with the team last season. You can count on this team being strong each weekend, and a threat to win every time Busch races.
