#4 Ricky Stenhouse Jr
While Ricky Stenhouse Jr was originally expected to be the next big thing in The Cup Series, he finds himself with only two wins, one playoff appearance and two poles over the course of his six year career. Of course his teammates aren’t doing much better and none of them are in this year’s playoff’s, but its not like Stenhouse Jr has been getting statically better behind the wheel
In fact, he has an average finish of 19.1 this season, which is two positions worse then his average of 17.9 in 2017. Add that disappointing average to the fact that Stenhouse Jr has been known to be overly aggressive on the track throughout his career and you can start to see why Roush Fenway Racing might be starting to get tired of him.
If nothing else, Stenhouse Jr is a developmental driver that should have never been moved up to Cup in the first place. Furthermore, his only Cup Series victories are at plate tracks, which are more luck based then anything else. With that being said, don’t expect Stenhouse Jr to last much longer and for RFR to eventually give up on him in favor of someone else.
